Buon Vino Super Jet Filter - Wine Filter
Spirit, Liqueur & Wine Filter
Simply the best available homebrew filter on the market, we have even sold these commercially.
Quick and easy to set up, well-engineered, have a good set of instructions & very effective in operation.
Like all wine filters, they work best when used to add a bright sparkle to already clear wine, and not to clear the wine in the first place.
We use the Mini Jet filter fitted with fine pads on all our single 5-gallon batches.
The wine goes through in about 15 minutes and comes out with a brilliant shine.
We use the Super Jet more often as we find that we can filter 4 by 5-gallon batches using one set (there are 3 pads to a set for both machines) of fine pads.
The most we have done was 6 in one go.
The back pressure did rise, but as the Super Jet is fitted with a pressure gauge we were able to monitor this with 18/20 psi on the gauge being the recommended limit.
We use only the fine pads, as we have found that these produce a happy balance of excellent clarity with a good volume.
The Superjet connections are simple barbed for one & tapered for the other with good 1/2" food grade tubing with attached sediment trap for one & shaped 'hook over' to the depository container for the other.
They have been used for other beverages & products where exceptional clarity is sought.
Do remember that no filter will clear a wine that is full of pectin, as this will just quickly block up the pores of the pads.
It is a bit like passing wallpaper paste through a sieve!
