    Default Mead Filtration

    Ok.. Heather and I have been making mead for over a year now.. and have had great success.. we always filter our meads through the Vinbrite system.. its a gravity feed system and has always worked in the past.. but while nothing in our recipes have changed.. the filter slows to almost a non existent trickle... has anyone played with using a powered pump to help move liquid.. like maybe an aquarium pump or something.. I do NOT want to drop 500 on the fancy wine vacuum systems..
    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated...

    Those DIY house water filtration setups are not that expensive, the money comes in getting a vacuum pump, you might get lucky and get one from Ebay for cheap that works, then you could also use it for bottling, racking, transferring mead from a carboy on the floor to a worktable, lots of things a vacuum pump can do for you besides just filtering so its a good equipment investment. For your current setup, do you fine before filtering, that helps a lot to not clog up a filter fast.

    Here is a thread to a previous discussion on the same subjet:

    BTW... the Boun Vino Mini Jet sans filters can be used as a pump.
    Age improves with mead, even more than mead improves with age.
