The Blichmann WineEasy Fermentor is truly a state-of-the-art piece of equipment that allows home winemakers to make wines of unparalleled quality! Blichmann has developed the WineEasy as a combined fermentor and press, which is unique and perhaps different than anything else on the market. The primary fermentor, available in 20, 30 and 55 gallons sizes, contains a false bottom that keeps the pomace separate from the must as the free runnings are drained from the fermentor. The grapes can then be pressed with a vacuum press and piston (vacuum press and piston sold separately). Using this method, there is no need to move the pomace to another vessel for pressing, and the must is pressed off the pomace in a sealed environment, minimizing oxidation and possibility of contamination. Pressing is also highly efficient, and cleanup is much easier than on traditional bladder or ratchet presses. It is also done in a manner that does not extract harsh tannins from cracked seeds or stems.
The design is such that the only one vacuum press kit is needed for doing pressing on any of the fermentors; the only thing that is needed is a different sized piston for the different sized fermentors. The vacuum can also be used to transfer and degass before bottling. With all these advantageous features, the Blichmann WineEasy is the perfect choice for home winemakers who want to make world-class wines at home!
