Not a bad idea. Here is another way.
I have been getting excellent aeration by racking the chilled wort
from my boiler into a small funnel resting atop my carboy. By
directing the stream against the side of the funnel, you get a
significant amount of vorticity in the fluid mass in the funnel. This
creates a falling tubular wort stream below the funnel, which tends to
break up into small droplets.
