Blichmann WineEasy Fermentor - 55 Gallon Capacity

Product Description

The WineEasy™ combined fermentor and press is admittedly different than anything else on the market, but it's distinguished by the quality and performance you expect from Blichmann Engineering. It's extremely easy to use, and traditional fermenting and pressing techniques simply can't rival its results.

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.

Because all of this is done without transferring the pomace to a press — and in a completely closed, air-tight system — oxidation, contamination, and mess 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. 

Features

  • Great for bulk ageing as a VCT (variable capacity tank), but NO tire to keep inflated
  • No messy transfers to a secondary fermentor.
  • Less risk of contamination and oxidation.
  • Great press efficiency.
  • Less time.
  • Easy to use.
  • Simple mess-free cleanup.
  • Production of consistently superb wines.

The WineEasy consists of 3 parts sold separately (option to purchase other parts below):

  • Wine Fermentor: avail. 20, 30 or 55 gallon. Each fermenting tank comes equipped with the ring stand, bottom valve, false bottom assembly and a tight fitting lid.
  • Wine Press Piston: The Press Piston must be the SAME size as your fermentor size (20, 30 or 55 gallon). Please note: 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.
  • Wine Vacuum Press Kit: The vacuum press eliminates wastes in the wine making process and works with all sizes of fermentors. You will only need ONE vacuum press kit for your winery no matter what quantity or size fermentors you have.
