Well welcome to winemakingtalk. Dive right in
EXACTLY JIM - I still using your pictures on mt tutorial on my website about filtration - https://www.allinonewinepump.com/product/wine-filter-setup/
If you have any questions or concerns you can always contact me directly
Regarding bubbles: True confessions, I haven't bought any AllinOne products yet, but I probably will soon because I need a better bottling setup. However, I do already have a filtering system that I pieced together myself which I believe is very similar to the AIO. I've seen the bubbles before too and I'm pretty sure they are CO2. I think the filter really causes a lot of them to come out of solution for some reason. Last year I had a seyval blanc split up into several carboys. Most of them I put through the filter but one I did not. I like the ones I put through the filter better, not just because they are clearer but also because it turns out that there was more CO2 in the wine than I thought prior to bottling. The filter pulled out the excess CO2 and those taste nice. The one I didn't filter is slightly zippy and pettilant.
Steve - I just want you to know that I received the pump last week.
After overthinking and over-analyzing the simplicity of it, I made the decision to get on with it and test it out. Amazed.
After again shocked by the simplicity and ease of use, I set out to rack a carboy...I didn't stop there. After racking 4-6.5 gallon and 4-3 gallon carboys, I emerged 45 minutes later amazed at what was accomplished and how much time I had to do other things.
By far this was the best money I have spent on wine making equipment. I can tell you this, from reading comments from others, emailing and talking to you about my needs, the quick shipping and service...one of the most satisfying purchases ever!
I cannot wait to filter and bottle.
I'll be talking soon and hope to see you in the future. Thanks again!
I went thru the same process then bought one several years ago. Cannot live without it now. Makes racking a pleasure. No more lifting carboys!
