The WineEasy™ combined fermenter and press stands out from the competition because of its quality and performance.

At the heart of this system is a high-quality, stainless steel primary fermenter (available in 20, 30, or 55 gallon sizes). The uniquely designed false bottom allows the pomace to be separated from the wine while draining the unit. The tines on the pressure plate support the perforated false bottom and keep the fermenter from collapsing under the pressure of the vacuum pump.

After alcoholic fermentation, the free run is drained or pumped out of the fermenter and the sliding piston assembly is installed. The vacuum pump evacuates the carboy and applies a vacuum under the false bottom. 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 in a completely closed air-tight system without transferring the pomace to a press, oxidation, contamination, and mess are virtually eliminated.

Cleanup is as easy as scooping the dry pomace into a container and washing out the high-polish stainless steel fermenter.

Please Note: This 30 gallon Wine Easy requires at least 6.6 gallons of must to press effectively.

  • No messy transfers to a secondary fermenter
  • Less risk of contamination and oxidation
  • Great press efficiency
  • Quicker production times
  • Easy to use
  • Simple, mess-free cleanup

Additional Info:

The system is divided into 3 main parts: Fermentor, Piston, and Vacuum pump. This eliminates any wasted components should you desire to have multiple fermentors and/or different size units in your winery. Each fermenting tank comes equipped with the ring stand, bottom valve, false bottom assembly and a tight fitting lid. 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%. 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. 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!
