Wine making should be good clean fun!
Too much CO2 in your wine can make it taste prickly and also push the corks out of your bottles before you are ready to serve it. Too little CO2 can give it a flat taste.
Don't blow your cork or dump out your carboy just yet.
You will love the ease of operation of the Gassy Grape, a compact counter top carboy vacuum pump for wine degassing perfectly suited for the home winemaker. Just plug it to an electrical outlet, insert the bung (plug) into your carboy, connect the tubing to the pump, flip the switch and you are degassing...hands-free! A great vacuum pump for degassing wine.
The Gassy Grape wine degassing vacuum pump replaces cumbersome drill attached whips or loud and oil fogging vacuum pumps. Our pump is perfect for the counter top yet is just slightly bigger than a computer mouse and weighs less than a pound.
This item is the pump, tubing and carboy bung (plug) only. The carboy is shown for context and demonstration only.
