Transfer fermented, but uncarbonated, beer from carboy to carboy or from carboy to keg. For those brewers that perhaps cannot lift a carboy or have issues with siphoning this is a great solution. Self-priming (will push air) so that it can draw out of a carboy or tank. Gentle diaphragm action so as to not "beat up" the beer. Made of food-grade, NSF approved, materials polypropylene and santoprene, so no metallic interaction with the product. Pumps 3 gallons per minute.

Flow can be restricted with an inline valve positioned on the outflow side. Self-regulating motor is designed to temporarily shut down, and then turn back on, when restriction pressure exceeds pump capacity. Has a heat limitation of 125 degrees Fahrenheit so cannot be used in brewing applications.

Shurflo brand pump is equipped with 1/2" Male NPT posts on the inlet and outlet. Does not include the plastic barb fittings you will need to purchase separately. Please see the "You Might Also Need" section below for our recommendations regarding which fittings to attach to the pump.

Good company, self priming

This was literally the only self priming food grade pump I could find. I ended up purchasing two so I could transfer 275 gallons in 45 minutes.

Can this pump be used with the 5 bottler filler to pump wine from a barrel to the bottler filler, will it automatically
shut of when the float is raised to close the flow?
Michael A Conroy on Oct 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You should be able to use it to pump wine from barrel to the bottle filler. But, I don’t think it will shut off when the float is raised to close the flow - you will need to shut it off when the reservoir is full.

It's NOT self pruming
It is not self priming unless it is pumping water or a liquid of similar viscosity and the head is less than 4'.

Also the inline filter plugged up after a few seconds - Do you have a screen filter with larger holes?? All it needs to do is stop a grape seed.

Made Racking Much Easier
We used to siphon the wine into 5 gallon bottles and then pour it back into the barrel after removing the lees. Using the pump with a prefilter allowed us to do in less than half a day what used to take all day, with 2 people instead of 4.

Self-Priming Shurflo Diaphragm Pump
This pump works great, I've had no problems with it. I use it only to transfer (pump) ice cold water out of a freezer that has been converted into a water storage container for use with a plate chiller.

Shurflow Pump
I like the pump, it moves wine between carboys very quickly. My only issue is that it does not have an on-off switch. I I mounted the pump on a box and and added a power strip with an on-off.

Like it. Might love it someday.
I would love it more with an on off switch and a speed control. But does it work? Heck yeah.

Great pump
Used this to pump wine from the cellar up to a bottling rack and it worked great and was a lot quieter than our old pump.

Great pump. Quiet and efficient. Twice as fast as my old pump and needed no priming!
Great pump! Well worth the price!

self priming. powerful enough to drain a 20 gallon tank in about 9 minutes. rubber grommets on the bottom allow you to screw it to a wood or metal stand and not have the unit vibrate or make vibration noises as it rubs on the stand during use. it is a small and compact size with a power cord that is long enough (there is no on-off switch, but you could build one in with some basic electrical techniques and supplies.

Shurflo self-priming diaphragm pump - Reliable workhorse
I've been using a Shurflo Diaphragm Pump for 4+ years and I'm very pleased with it. If you believe that diaphragm pumping is "easier" on the wine than centrifugal action pumping, this is a very economical diaphragm pump for home winemakers, or a small winery, to use for racking or transferring wine. Using the in-line filter is a must. The suction lift and pumping pressure are very good. Used properly, this is pretty much a maintenance free pump. I just purchased a second Shurflo to multi-task and have a back-up pump.
