Default Degassing wine trick

Anybody done this? Seems like it might actually work.

I know there's a way to embed the video, but I'm technologically incompetent.

The physics makes sense and I myself just bought the vacuum pump. It should be here later this week so if you want to wait till then I can give you a review on it. I have also seen people use their shop vac to aid in degassing the wine but I don't think that is too sanitary.

It would take forever and you would end up with Popeye forearms by the time you finished.

Along with taking forever, I am not sure how much suction those wine savers get. I got a mitivac. I leave it on for a few hours. Giving it a few pumps every 10 - 15 minutes to keep it where I want it.

mightyvac or why not just get a cheap HVAC vacuum pump and rig up a 1/4 flare or 1/2 ACME adaptor to a rubber stopper. Could be put together for less than $100 and it would be lightning fast!

I also use a mityvac hand pump. I use it quite a bit in the beginning, then I let time work out the rest. I usually have one more go at it right before bottling too.

I need to acquire some parts and I'd be happy to. My concern is pulling too much vacuum but it would be pretty easy to tell... Hmm

Put a guage inline and your problem is solved.

I agree, I was just concerned it could reach a vacuum level that would cause the alcohol to boil
