I use one of those doohickeys that hook up to a drill, and generally do it for about 10min or so on-and-off. I'm pretty sure how long to oxygenate using O2 has been answered here before, if you search around...popetim wrote:Hi from a newb, at least a newb at aeration. How long do I aerate? One minute, five minutes, half hour? till the oxygen in the Benson red cylinder is gone? (OK I'm assuming that last option is not viable!). Thanks ahead of time for the answer, Tim

The more foam you get on top of your beer and the more bubbling you see coming through the surface the less o2 you are dissolving in the wort.
Helps if you can move the stone around as well. My aeration stone is attached to a wand and i "swirl" the wand continuously while aerating.

At some point too much O2 can be detrimental to the yeast.....
