Diffusion Stone .5 Micron
The .5 micron stone is ideal to force carbonate your kegged beer, or as an aeration stone prior to fermentation. The barb is 1/4" ID.
To Use: Attach 2 feet of 1/4" tubing from the "gas in" dip tube inside the keg. (Tubing not included). Set your pressure on your regulator and CO2 gets let out through the .5 micron stainless stone. The bubbles rise through the beer, creating a mass amount of surface area contact between gas and liquid that the absorption rate is very rapid. This is very similar to how beer is carbonated in bigger breweries.
1/2" diameter. Stone is 1" in length. Overall length is 1 7/8"
Sanitizing your Diffusion Stone:
To properly sanitize your stones, we recommend you run it in a sanitized solution for 5 minutes. If the stone becomes clogged, try boiling the stone for 1-3 minutes to help break down anything within it.
If boiling is not an option, try soaking it in Star San. Star San will remove a majority of surface contamination/bacteria, but will not sanitize the interior of the stone, which may or may not be contaminated.
Please note that you do not want to touch the stainless stone portion with your hands. The pores on the stone are so small that the oil from your fingers can actually clog them.
