Oxygenate your wort to the full extent with this sized stone. The O2 dissolves more easily._x000D_My first stone blocked and no matter what I did I couldn't clean it. Now I run the O2 for a few extra seconds while soaking in a cup of PBW. I turn it off and let it sit for days, making sure nothing sticks. I've not had problems since.
Pros_x000D_Great job of dissolving Oxygen into your must_x000D__x000D_Cons_x000D_Easily blocks, must soak in PBW afterwards
I used it to Oxygenate my wort and I learned my lesson when I first used it. I handled it while cleaning it and didnt blow out the accumulated wort._x000D_Use gloves and after using it, set it in a cup of PBW and blow through it.
The smaller the bubble the better, and even after I oxygenate my wort I shake the bucket to dissolve any Oxygen in the head space back into the wort. It clogs easily so soak it in a small container of PBS after using.
I put mine in boiling water, then star san, after using. It still clogs too easily. I use gloves so oils from my hands wont clog them
