will this pump h308 slow down enough for racking in to bottles? If so will a racking cane or some sort of bottle filling gun be needed?

it cativates at real slow speeds. The smallest I've racked into are half-gallon bottles, and it filled real fast.
My wife always professed her desire to marry a man with a body like a Greek god. Somehow I don't think she meant one shaped like Bacchus...

Yep, it really foams and mechanical pumping (perhaps with the exception of vaccum) are really not suitable for bottling,
Gravity filling is a better gentler option,save the pump for racking and pumping the wine into gravity tank.
My advice may or may not be backed by actually personal expirience and should be treated as such. :)
