Could I use an SS aeration stone while dry hopping in a Brew Bucket?

Putting a Stainless Stone in the bucket is a pretty good thought. Similar to what is done in a lot of breweries where they will use a CO2 Lift.

However, because a stone is designed to create very small bubbles. . . you won't get the degree of turbulence that a production brewery would get with a CO2 Lift.

CO2 Lifts are done typically in the dump port (very bottom) and rely on large bubbles to churn the wort.

The Bucket doesn't lend itself to putting a Port on the very bottom.

If you overuse CO2 during dry hopping you will scrub the aroma.
