Blichmann WineEasy™

The WineEasy™ is a unique piece of equipment that is both a fermentation tank, a press, and a transferring system. We especially like that you can purchase multiple fermenting vats while only having to purchase one pressing piston and vacuum system. You can even ferment in other vessels and use the WineEasy as your press. The easiest way to understand is to watch the videos (see the videos tab below). 

First, select your batch size noting that the fermentors are designed to be filled about 75% full of must (to allow for cap rise), and typical press efficiencies will be about 60-70%.

*Finished wine and must weight are approximations only due to varietal differences and other variables.

Buying your system:

We have divided the system into 3 main parts: Fermentor, Piston, and Vacuum pump. This allows you to have multiple fermentors while purchasing just one Piston Assembly and one Vacuum assembly.

STEP 1

Base fermenting vat - select the size or sizes that meet your needs. Either one unit or multiple units of the same size. Or even a combination of different sizes! Each fermenting tank comes equipped with the ring stand, bottom valve, false bottom assembly and a tight fitting lid.

STEP 2

Purchase a piston assembly to match your fermentor size. You will need ONE piston for each different size fermentor you have in your winery. If you have multiple fermentors of ONE size you only need ONE piston.

WineEasy Press Piston

STEP 3

Purchase the vacuum press kit. You will only need ONE vacuum press kit for your winery no matter what quantity or size fermentors you have. The vacuum press kit can also be used to degass your wine!
