100 lbs of grapes = 5 gallons of wine
Automated Punch to extract flavour and color
When a punch is desired, the controller inflates the bladders. This action squeezes the fermentation bag forcing the wine up through the cap. After a few minutes the bladder is deflated and fragments of the cap fall back into the wine. The action is repeated periodically and ensures that the cap is dispersed and kept moist.
Automated wine press
Pressing out wine is difficult to do at home. Wine presses are expensive and create a huge mess. This is the main reason why home winemakers mostly use grape juice. However, for red wines, fermentation with skins is essential to making quality wine. The GO fermentor Jr with its integral press does away with the need for a dedicated press.
