Description

Using the WineEasy™ combined fermentor and press is admittedly different than anything on the market, but is incredibly easy to use and provides results and ease of use that traditional fermenting and pressing techniques simply can't offer.

At the heart of the system is a high quality stainless primary fermentor (20, 30 and 55 gal sizes). A uniquely designed false bottom located at the bottom of the fermentor allows the pomace to be separated from the wine while draining the unit. The tines on the pressure plate support the bottom of the fermentor and perforated false bottom and keep it from collapsing from the pressure imparted by the vacuum pump.

After alcoholic fermentation, the free run is drained or pumped out of the fermentor. The sliding piston assembly is then installed. The vacuum pump evacuates the carboy (or other vacuum capable vessel) and applies a vacuum under the false bottom of the WineEasy fermentor. This causes atmospheric pressure to push down on the sliding piston pressing the pomace to the ideal maximum pressure of 14 PSI to avoid hard press conditions.

Since this is all done without transferring the pomace to a press, and is done so in a completely closed and air tight system, oxidation and contamination are virtually eliminated.

Cleanup is as easy as scooping out the dry pomace into a container and washing out the high polish stainless steel fermentor!

Blichmann Wine Easy
I have been using the 35 basket press for quite some time. I have found it always did the job but at a price. You always had spillage on the floor from poring the wine into the basket or just by ratcheting down. As I have gotten older I don't have the strength I use to and it became a chore to ratchet the bottom portion. Also afterwards the clean up took forever because you need to clean the basket, wood slates, the wood inserts and the spindle. So for a full year I looked into purchasing the Blichmann 55 gallon fermentor, and finally I pulled the trigger and purchase the 3 items, the 55 gal. fermentor, the pump and lastly the press piston. Well to tell you the truth I couldn't be happier. I just wished I would have done it sooner. The instructions that are online are everything you need to know. It took me awhile to believe how simple it was. From the beginning you put into the 55 vat container your crushed grapes and ferment right in the tank. After the fermentation is complete you just hook up the air pump and the punch down lid and open the vessel ball and pump your wine into your carboy. Simple!!!! Clean up is easy, you just take out the pumas and rinse out your vessel and you are done. If you want easy and convenience this is the product for you.
