    in the taller water column, stands to reason that the longer/taller the air stays under water then the more air, DO2 that you will have........ then there's the weight of the water...
    SO HOW DEEP SHOULD WE GO

    I think that the best answer is how many feet of water or inches of water your pump pushes, deeper more work To pump!!

    I would like to see if a brewer no deeper then a foot or so deep but with plenty of surface area? Like a kiddie pool or something? Maybe a play off of Tim's up pipe design breaking the water tension and circulating from bottom to the top and so on.

    Might mean more cleaning and logistical problems then it's worth though??

    Has anybody tried this approach before? and if so how much more efficient or not is the O2 diffusion using more surface area and less water depth?
