I have been asked about a comment I made in another thread. I mentioned that there were two different styles of filler head for theBuon Vino Fill Jet. The attached picture is of the OLD STYLE head. I could not find my new style head.


Note the old head has a black cap and a chrome or stainless base. The pictures on the Buon Vino site show a fullblack head.


If you have a Fill Jet with an old head, you can order a new head from Buon Vino. Make sure that you get the new mounting plate and instructions. Be prepared to drill some holes.

I had two Fill Jets for my Ferment on Premises. Running 50-100 30 bottle batches per month from Sept 2001 to Sept 2007.


I had various problems with the filler heads over the years.Biggest problem was not shutting off properly. Can't remember what is wrong with the pictured head. Just know that I should find the new head and install it before using the filler.

the issue w shutting off properly is usually induced by some sediment/pulp/chips finding their way up into the head

Filtered kit wine. No pulp, no chips. Maybevery little sediment occasionally.


Fill Jet rinsed well after use, sanitized before use.
