#6 - i have a vacuum pump that i was going to use to rack my wine from carboy to carboy - and i was going to make a 1 gallon glass jug into a reservoir to catch wine from going into the vacuum.

I use a combination of that cap and this (Look clear down at the bottom of the page). That site will also clearly explain what you need and how to do it. A little pricey though.

There are two holed bungs available - I have a couple, size 6.5 or 7, I believe, and cost about 2 bucks. They are black in color - sorry, don't have a picture.

I think those will work - but i have an extra solid bung - think i will just freeze it and drill 2 holes :h


WOW, I can't believe it. I just bookmarked this place to check out again later and did not see these. They are quiet cheap there. I was looking for personalized corks for another post when i came across this place. Thanks for sharing and for sure i will be looking into this some more when I have time.

What is way cheaper is just getting a solid bung, freezing it and drilling the holes yourself while it is frozen.[/QUOTE]

This can be done but it is easier said. I tried freezing overnite, but that was a waste of time. The rubber would not freeze. I finally drilled 2 1/16" holes then a 1/4" drill and then I used my dremel to grind it out to the correct size. I tried doing it in a vise but the vise distorted it too much. I held it in my hand to do the whole job for 2 corks. Wow. :b :b

For those who might be interested I use a custom drilled 2 hole - 6.5 tapered gum stopper. It works really well with the 3/8 racking tube and a ¼ hole for vacuum control.
This stopper can also be used for an airlock to fit the 3/8 id and a thermometer to to fit in the ¼ ‘’ hole to check your temp at any time - fits 1, 3, 5, 6, 6.5, 7 gallon carboys (most common).
Price is $8.00 includes shipping
I also make all sorts of custom size bungs for barrels as well !
email me for additional info or purchasing - info@allinonewinepump.com
