  • Q and A

The WineEasy Degassing Kit is a vacuum degassing kit from Blichmann Engineering. No more messing with cumbersome, inefficient stir-type degassers that leave CO2 in solution and cause a mess. With the WineEasy Degassing Kit, professionally degassing your wine is as easy as flipping a switch! A vacuum is placed on wine in a carboy through a special stopper, drawing all carbon dioxide out of solution, leaving your wines still and delicious! Degassing usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on the temperature of your wine. We recommend getting your wine up between 75-80 degrees for fastest results. This is the perfect degassing solution for all winemakers!

NOTE: This product can be used by anyone on any wine for degassing. For those with a WineEasy Fermentor and Piston, the Vacuum Press Kit for WineEasy is recommended for full use with the WineEasy system.

The Degassing Kit comes with the following components:

  • Vacuum pump
  • 5 ft piece of 1/4" OD hard plastic vacuum tube
  • 1/4" X 6" stainless steel vacuum tube
  • #7 two-hole silicone stopper
  • #00 solid tan rubber stopper (used to plug the racking tube hole for degassing)
  • Check valve assembly and with spare check ball and check ball seat

For shipping orders, this product is drop shipped directly from the manufacturer. Please allow 1-3 weeks for delivery. For pickup orders, we carry a supply of these in all our stores but will contact you if we are out at the time of your order.

Works great

This is a very nice quality machine and it works very well. It does smell a bit like oil when run, as I think most vacuum pumps do, but I just run it next to an exhaust vent. I did find that degassing a carboy takes more like 6-8 hours and not the 20 minutes that many sources on this subject seem to claim. But the pump runs well and maintains the vacuum without any problem for that time period.
Owner Response:Stephen - Thanks for the review! To degas quicker, try getting your wine up to 75-80 degrees. The CO2 will come out of solution much quicker at higher temps. Cheers! Bryan
