DetailsA Mix-Stir Agitator Rod makes aerating in a carboy a breeze. Simply attach the agitator rod to your drill and you are ready to go. The blades fold up for easy insertion into any sized carboy (except 1/2 and 1 gallon sizes). De-gas your wine in a few minutes, or aerate your wort for a healthy fermentation.
Please Note: The mix-stir is very effective at de-gassing your wine and it should not be used for more than a few 10-15 second bursts. If you over-use the mix-stir you risk adding oxygen to your wine.

11 months agoThis was not what I boughtI bought a corker for wine. You people are not very brightAugust 3, 2016Agitator RodI have used this on 2 batches now and have found the yeast have been 'happier' than they have been in a couple of my prior batches.January 4, 2016Aerates the wort but not sturdyIt works ok, no problem with the results. But I can see it eventually snapping form all the torque it experiences. In both directions if you reverse your drill.February 14, 2014Get air into your wortThe agitator produces a lot of foam and gets the air back into the wort so the yeast can grow faster. Its better than a spoon and better than rocking a bucket._x000D_It seems a little fragile and I worry it won't hold up, though it's still ok after 4 uses.January 9, 2014It mixes wellI run it at low speed so the plastic shaft isn't stressed. For long term use it would probably have made sense to get the stainless steel version, but I think this will last a long time and it's half the price.November 5, 2013Get the Stainless steel one insteadI used this half a dozen times then it broke. Since it needs to be replaced I would have been better off just buying the stainless steel rod version instead of the plastic rod version. It mixes well so I will buy the stainless version.September 18, 2013Poor constructionI bought this as I was just getting into making wine. Tried to save a few bucks. I was into my second batch when SNAP! I finished it off by hand and ordered a steel one. Like others, it snapped where the steel shank ends. This is fine if you want to see if you like making wine and not spend alot of money. I wish I bought the steel one first cause that's what ended up happening.July 24, 2013Could be stifferIt's a good idea in concept, but the shaft isn't strong enough to withstand the RPMs, so it bends, and I can see it eventually breaking. I run it at a low speed so as not to stress it, but I wish I bough the stainless steel version instead._x000D__x000D_Make sure you use the lowest speed possible.June 17, 2013Better then a spoon but be careful when usingThis product is ok but you may want to spend a little more for the metal version. It's rather flimsy, I'm cautious when using it as I'm worried that it may snap.June 3, 2013
