Watching youtube videos on winemaking last night I saw a video on degassing using the mason jar attachment and a drilled bung which caused negative pressure on the vessel and in turn drew out the co2.

I tried it on a one gallon batch and it seemed to work, how well I dont know.
Does anyone have thoughts on this as to effectiveness and if it is used how long and how many times to you vaccum the bottle, obviously a larger bottle will need a longer period.

Perhaps using a brake bleeding pump would work better and prevent me from killing the foodsaver.

Youre going to burn out that motor very fast, my friend tried that for about 6-6 gallon batches with a fairly new foodsaver before he ruined it and his wife wasnt very happy with him!
