Jaybird™ 2 Inch Tri Clover
Ultimate Carbonation Stone
“Oxygen” stones have long been a staple tool in the “advanced” home brewer’s toolbox at the wort level. What better way to get yeast excited about their upcoming buffet than to blow fine bubbles of oxygen through it? Dinner time, yeasty boys!
If oxygen works at the wort level, then why not use an oxygen stone - but blow CO2 through it - at the finished beer level?
Why not indeed! Turns out using an oxygen stone as a carbonation stone can reduce carbonation time to as little as 24 hours, and with NO CARBONATION BITE!
Our customers constantly challenge us to bring “pro” technology to the home brewer. So here ya go…
The 2 Inch Tri Clover Ultimate Carbonation Stone connects to your wort or beer source using standard tri clover clamp (SKU# 1105, sold separately) and gasket (SKU# 1059, sold separately), or… if using a standard beer keg vessel, our 2” Flat Half Gasket (SKU# 28, sold separately).
This unit is rugged enough to be used for forced pressure transfers between vessels, and for purging oxygen out of a vessel (by displacing it with heavier CO2).
The gas port “in” is a standard Gas Ball Lock post, accepts any standard barbed (SKU# 0132) or flared (SKU# 0134) gas ball lock connector (sold separately).
The oxygen stone (included) is our 2 micron, industry standard 1/4" FFL flared connection type (SKU# 2049). It threads into the 304 stainless steel housing, and is easily removed for cleaning. Best way to clean the stone is submersing it in boiling water for a few minutes. Do not touch with fingers once clean, as even a small amount of oil on your fingers can clog the fine 2 micron pores.
This item’s steel housing protects MOST of the stone (in case you drop it). The tip of the stone sticks past the housing about 3/16”, and will be about even with the vessel-end of the connection gasket once clamped to your wort or beer vessel.
