Ah yeah and I'm assuming you can whirlpool LODO with a recirculation below water level. I skipped my normal manual whirlpool as I was worried about it causing oxidation.

How's your O2 pickup after sitting for an hour? I try and get it in the fermenter on the yeast as soon as possible but if I can let it settle longer than 30 min without worry I would.

wobdee, I'm surprised you siphon. I have to believe my process of siphoning (autosiphon) introduces more oxygen than LODO requires. I'm contemplating a long overdue drain valve but I'm sure going to one compromises separation.

Sorry, I shouldn't of said siphon off the top. I rack out the drain valve which is a good inch above the bottom of the kettle so it's more like racking off the top of the trub.
