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.

Looks like the right pump to transfer < 50 gal
Better than using gravity for sample batches!

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.

Russell U on Jul 7, 2021
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.
Will it pump through bevbright 3 micron filter?
Richard Freudenberg on Mar 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This pump will certainly work when paired with a filter. This pump has an adustable backpressure tolerance that you can adjust so that the pump shuts off when it is met with too much resistence from a clogged filter.

It works until it doesn't
Disappointing. Sometimes it works well, but by the end of a pressing day it usually doesn't. We are using the recommended in-line filters. Its main failing is that it loses its ability to self-prime. Can be frustrating when you just want to cycle some solutions to clean your hoses and be done!
Last time we used the pump it would trip the sockets fuse every time I plugged it in. (Fortunately it was at the end of the day.) I took it apart and found no thing obviously wrong with it. There were some fine particles that had got through the filter. I'm not sure what they're saying about the diaphragm being delicate. It looks pretty robust to me. Upon putting it back together it ran without shorting BUT still wasn't self-priming.
This is our second season using the pump. We put just over a thousand gallons through it last year. And we've put about 700 through this year.

Time Saver!
We use this pump to transfer wine from barrel to the bottle filler reservoir. The ability to pull air and have consistent flows really saved us so many headaches of our prior setup. No more auto siphons for me.

Reduces the chances of oxidizing beer during transfers.
Very easy to set up and use. Already used it to transfer 3 fermenters into kegs in less time than before. Significantly reduces the chances of oxidizing your beer when transferring. Glad I bought it.

A Great Pump, works as advertised.
This pump works as advertised. I use it to pump Star San into my 1/2 barrel fermenter and brite tank to sanitize. I keep the Star San in 16 gallon barrels to re-use. Minimal foaming. I doctor RO water to my beer style, in 16 gallon barrels (empty 16 gallon LME containers from my brew shop). Then use this pump to move the brew water to my HLT and Mash Tun. Very easy on my back. I plan to buy a second one for backup!

Flow is great
We have been using a smaller pump so it is great to finish in a fraction of the time. Warning you need to get all the gaskets necessary to hook up your hoses.

Good little pump
Good pump for small jobs. You wont be moving a lot of material fast but it does a job job for what its intended purpose is. we use it with a variable speed adapter and move cider from primary to secondary. Or from our press bucket to the fermenter.

Thank you so much for the great review. For anyone else wondering the pre-filter pictured is our FIL26 and can be used with any 1/2" tubing. Cheers!

It works!
I would have given this pump 5 stars, but it was not a good fit for what I do with winemaking. I ended up returning it through no fault of its own. I can say it does make quick work of transferring liquids from point A to point B. It's a solid/strong pump, although there is no on/off switch. Hindsight, I probably should have gone with the variable speed pump. If I made larger volumes wine; it would be a good fit and I would figure out a way to rig an on/off switch for it. Hope this helps!
