GOfermentorNET Controller

GOfermentorNET Controller

60 day no hassle return policy. Details

The GOfermentor consists of three components, the GObase, the GOfermentorNET controller, and the single-use GOliner. The GObase is a reusable, rigid outer container, which holds the GOliner. Since the wine does not contact the GObase, it can be reused with a simple wipe down. It folds for compact storage. A panel with electrical components attaches to the GObase for control of punch-down, temperature, press, and other functions.

GOfermentor controller. Each fermentor requires a NET controller. Can be controlled using built-in local panel or cloud-based smartphone app (Android or iOS). NET controller handles scheduled punches, temperature control (add GOtemp and GOcooler), and press operations.

Advanced Winemaking
The GOfermentor brings advanced technology to winemaking, providing greater control of fermentation parameters, resulting in better quality wine, everytime. Automated punch. Built-in press. No cleaning. No waste water. No installation.

The GOfermentor is a patented automated wine making device that ferments in single-use liners. This system not only eliminates punchdown labor, but also pressed the wine out with a click of a button. Water usage is vastly reduced (by 90% on average). No washing, no steaming, no detergents. Minimal waste water generation helps the environment.

Automatic Punch
Instead of the traditional "punch down", the GOfermentor performs a "punch-up"! This unique concept is only made possible by the use of flexible bag technology, and is the secret to the GOfermentor's superior extraction of color and flavor. The advanced instrumentation logs data, events and alarms. A Smart-phone app allows remote monitoring and control over the Internet from anywhere in the world. Optional sampling tube allows samples to be withdrawn at any time. The sampling tube includes a temperature sensor.

How the Press Works
Remove temperature probe, insert perforated stainless pressing tube. Remove vent valve and cap. Connect pressing tube via a crush-proof hose to a pump. Pump must be self-priming and have at least 2" discharge ports. Start the pump. The head-space will vacuum out. Then the clear free-run wine will flow out from the GOliner to the collection container. Any skins, seeds, and stems will remain in the liner. Once free-run stops, activate the Press function to inflate, squeezing the pomace dry. Then disconnect, and discard the GOliner containing waste pomace.

Temperature Control
The GOcooler optional stainless steel heat exchanger plate can be placed under the GOliner and connected to chilled water or glycol. The heat exchanger has a control valve that automatically maintains the desired temperature during the fermentation. It can also be used to heat.

You Will Need:
  • Floor space of 48" x 48" and doorway width of 46"
  • Pallet jack or fork-lift to move 225 lb GObase unit
  • Standard household-type electric service 110 VAC 10amp
  • Must pump (self-priming 2" tri-clamp discharge) to fill and empty

Is the primary open to air or under airlock?
Kashyap gupta on Sep 1, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This fermentor is closed. It ferments in the liner and vents out the CO2 as needed similar to an airlock. All of your wine is contained and sealed properly.

Easy to use and great value.
When I started making wine it was a hazzle trying to figure out the different many components needed to ferment a high quality wine. The GoFormentor made it easy to understand the whole process and easy to control the critical aspects of wine making which are cap management,reduction of exposure to unwanted bacteria from the environment and a temperature control while fermenting. Overall great product with great support from the manufacturer.
