Details

A 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.

This was not what I bought
I bought a corker for wine. You people are not very bright

Agitator Rod
I 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.

Aerates the wort but not sturdy
It 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.

Get air into your wort
The 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.

It mixes well
I 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.

Get the Stainless steel one instead
I 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.

Poor construction
I 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.

Could be stiffer
It'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.

Better then a spoon but be careful when using
This 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.
