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.

3.1 / 5.021 ReviewsWorks for meAfter three years and 35 batches of wine and mead, I have never had a problem with this tool. I am using it with a regular 3/8" electric (corded) drill. Maybe there were some production issues on the later models. I did break the paddles on my last batch, probably because I was getting them too close to the sides of the carboy. I am ordering replacement paddles now (G9120).April 10, 2013Update to previous review - replacement blades do not fit this modelI mentioned in my previous review that I was going to order replacement blades(G9120) for my agitator (G9107). The printed catalog says the blades fit either style, the product page on the website does not. I called Midwest and spoke with Brad, who confirmed that the web site was correct, and the printed catalog was not - the replacement blades only fit the stainless steel agitator (G9115). He was kind enough to send me a replacement. Thanks, Midwest!April 10, 2013Agitator 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, 2016Stop Shaking, This is so SimpleSo much better than trying to agitate your wort by hand. Pop in your drill and spin for 1-2 minutes. Works for getting oxygen in your beer and out of your wine.March 1, 2013Good for aerating wortI hook this up to my drill and agitate the wort in my kettle for a minute and its frothy and aerated. I start at the top and work my way down, pulling down the oxygenated wort. No problems what so ever. Start slower and you don't need to run it at 2000 RPM, Run it at a slower constant speed and it does the job without stressing it.March 7, 2013It 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, 2013works well, if you treat it kindly.Have used it with success. I was careful with it after reading other reviews. It worked fine, and I did not have any problems with it. Sure beats hand stirring!January 29, 2013worksOnly used it once, But worked great. I did have to squeeze the end to get it to fit in the carboy.April 20, 2012Could 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, 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, 2013
