The Bulldog Pup and Foot Valve with Spacers

The overall length of a standard stainless steel racking wand is 36 inches and fits both Bordeaux and Burgundy barrels. The wand slides up and down through the adjuster allowing up to 9 inches of vertical lees height adjustment.  We also offer an open end version to accept a Foot Valve (check ball valve) at the wine inlet. Optional flex leg and puncheon clamp on ends are available. A dual purpose 1 to 1 1/2 inch Tri Clover wine outlet fitting is standard, other fittings are available special order.


The gas inlet is 1/4 inch FNPT with a brass ball valve for easy gas control at the wand. A 20 psi pressure relief valve comes installed to insure recommended pressures are not exceeded.

A brass adjuster with an expanding food grade silicone bung securely seals the wand in the barrel without damage and preventing gas leakage. 50mm is the standard bung size, 42 mm and 48 mm are also available. The time saving lever lock Speed Ears quickly expands the bung.

"In 1986, owner-winemaker-inventor Don Othman made a huge contribution to the wine world with his creation of the Bulldog Pup, a gas pressure racking wand that more gently transfers wine between vessels than a conventional pump." - San Francisco Chronicle
