FAQ
Q Charlie (Oceanside, CA)
I was thinking about ordering the MiniJet Filtering System. However, I have a few questions. Does it require 3 filters each time you filter with it? Also, if using a filtering system does that mean you don`t have to wait quite as long to bottle since you are filtering out the particles?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
The minijet filter system does require 3 filter pads each time you filter. 1 set of 3 pads will do about 5-6 gallons of wineUsing a filter system does not mean you don`t have to wait as long. You still have to wait until the wine is completely clear before filtering. The purpose of filtering is to add a final polish to the wine`s appearance.

Q Bill and Flo (Waltham, MA)
Does this wine filtering system pump from one carboy or fermentation bucket up and into another carboy if they are on the same level?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
Yes, it does. One carboy/fermenter does not need to be higher than the other.

Q Sandy (Miles City, MT)
Is there a warranty on the MiniJet Filter System? If so, how long is it for and what does it cover?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
The manufacturer provides a one year warranty. Following is the warranty information provided with the filter.

Q Francis (Hunlock Creek, PA)
I am interested in taking my wine appearance up a notch. When using the MIniJet Filter, do I use one each coarse, polish, and sterile or do I choose a level like coarse, polish, or sterile. Would it matter one way or the other?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
The MiniJet Filter does take three pads at one time. All three pads have to be the same type (level). Most people use the polish. If you are wanting to use the sterile, you do have to filter through the polish first.

Q Tom (Fayetteville, NC)
I just purchased a MiniJet Filter with polish pads. Just to confirm when (at what stage or day), do recommend running the wine thru the filter?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
It is best to filter the wine at bottling time before sweetening the wine, after the fermentation is finished and after it has completely cleared.

Q Wil (Ladysmith, WI)
I received the MiniJet Filter as a gift earlier this year. They provide all kinds of info on cleaning but nothing on properly sanitizing.
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
You just soak the plates and hoses in a sulfite solution. The remaining parts that are not detachable should be wiped down with the sulfite solution taking care not to get any in the motor. Do not run the sulfite solution through the filter system.

Q Bill (Glendora, NJ)
I have a Minijet Filter System Question: How many times may a set of pads be used? Should they be changed after every session of 5 gallons or more?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
The wine filter pads may only be used once, they are not reusable. They should be changed after every 5-6 gallons of wine filtered or once they show signs of clogging.

Q Liz (Pensacola, FL)
I am considering purchasing this item. Can you filter directly into bottles with this unit?
A CustomerService@ECKraus.com
No, you cannot filter directly into the bottles. You will need to filter the wine into a fermenter or carboy and bottle from there.

"It works" Review by Mitch (Posted on 10/9/14)

I'll say I'm glad I got it - but it does have one glitch. Sometimes the engine won't click over and I have to give it a spin on the fan and then it runs.

"A necessary item for a winemaker" Review by Indyroger (Posted on 8/28/14)

I use this filter on my final racking into a bottling bucket, and by using the #1 filter, it makes the wine perfectly clear. Since the overflow is gravity feed, you have to make sure the hose doesn't plug. I keep a baking pan under the filter to help contain the mess. Cleaning and sanitizing is a lot of work. No motor problems so far, but if this one breaks, I will spring for the larger one.

"poor product" Review by bbqjohn (Posted on 8/9/14)

From day 1 you had to turn on & off to get it to work. After 2 years and 4 filterations it quit. Don't waste your money

"great machine" Review by momof4 (Posted on 7/27/14)

Have had great experience with this filtering system. The overflow tray will collect more wine if you have a lot of particulates in your wine, as the filter pads will collect debris and slow down the filtration speed. I always use a #2 pad. If you have a lot of debris in your wine, I suggest filtering first with a #1, wait several days and then filter with a #2 prior to bottling. I have never used a #3, although it is suggested for "polishing", especially with white wines. I have found that my whites are clear and have a beautiful shine with just using the #2 pads.

"A Great Purchase" Review by Tim (Posted on 2/25/14)

I wasn't sure when I bought the filter how it would work. I can tell you now it great. It made filtering and bottling so much easier and fast. Glad I made the purchase.

"Works Great" Review by Scott (Posted on 11/5/13)

Fantastic clearity to your finished wine. I've found the leaks can be kept to a minumum by "tweaking" the pressure on the steel front plate. Keep it snug but If it's leaking back off the pressure on the pads.

"not very effective, spurts wine out onto me" Review by Terryg (Posted on 10/31/13)
Rating

I have this, and I can say it is a poorly designed filter. As the filter pads collect debris from the wine, the pump continues to push wine into it under pressure. This results in wine spurting out from between the filters and the frame. I reinforced mine with addition 1/8th inch plates to spread the clamping pressure evenly, helped some, but not enough. I would not buy this again.

"Fantastic" Review by Ed (Posted on 10/22/13)

Tried it once using Course Pads - Wine is very clear. Loved it. Tiny leak from back plate, but I probably did not tighten it enough. Wish I had bought it years ago......

"Easy To use and works good." Review by Conner (Posted on 3/11/13)

Very simple to use and quick. Much better then the manual pump filter i was using. Wine looks glassy clear and pretty. Wish I bought it sooner.

"Makes my wine sparkling clear" Review by Dennis (Posted on 2/28/13)

I have had one of these filters for about 5 years. It works wonders for polishing my wines look. It leaks a little about a cup to a pint per batch but I was told by the local winery guy that all wine filters leak some.

"Beautiful wine" Review by Wino (Posted on 2/3/13)

Cleared my strawberry wine beautifully and that was with the medium pads. had no problems with using it. I have more wine to run through it but so far so good. It does leak off the pads a little but not enough to matter.

"Very good but very watery!" Review by Bill (Posted on 12/10/12)
Rating

Very good filtering. But watch out for a lot of leaks and getting a lot of the table all wet. Comes from the little overflow and a drain tube without any gravity flow. I used a 11 x 13 inch glass pan and put the whole filter in it. That way whenever gravity fails the excess liquid it contained and not running all over the table.

"motor not very good" Review by med11 (Posted on 10/8/12)

this works for about 10 times then motor stops working, not very good design
