I would like to thank Grasshopper for coming up with this great gadget that saves even more time in the process of removal of CO2. It still uses the 6.5 bung ,so you will not have to switch racking canes in order to use this complete setup. I am now selling them for 12 dollars with purchase of pump or 14 dollars individually (includes shipping). Please Pm me with your email address and I will put a PayPal money request to you, until I can get my shopping cart up and running properly.
They are flexible and are only 9'' tall to provide more stability.

Good work! This youtube video shows how to splash rack

You can use your hand pump to achieve the same result.

By the way, did you say two days? It really took that long? It usually takes me less than one hour at 25"...

I disagree with winedegasser that using the splash method will not remove all the CO2. (according to his video )

I noticed that the winedegasser takes around 7 minutes to do a transfer - while an Allinone can do it in 1/2 the time. See the video on my website

Please check out the following threads for more information about degassing with the Allinone -

There is much information if you would like more - so please PM me and I would be more than happy to assist

Please look at the posting on the degassing tool which aids in degassing with the Allinone and is flexible and efficient.
