Default Is anyone out there doing Extended Maceration?

Dick,
To add to Paul's comment I think a more common
term is 'pumping
over'. They take a hose close to the bottom of
the fermenter and pump it over the cap until it
mushes up the cap.

Ya, that is correct. When I worked at a
commercial winery we had a screen basket on top
of the fermentation bin and pumped from the
bottom and sucked up the seeds and let the wine
splash over the cap and then threw away the
seeds.
