BrauKon HopSteiner

Effective hop separation during dry hopping

The HopSteiner can be flexibly used during dry hopping to gently separate the hop sludge sediment from the beer without absorbing oxygen. During the process, the hop trub is separated with a high dry matter content.

Maximum yield

The use of the HopSteiner reduces the beer losses in the hop trub which would otherwise be lost when the yeast is removed from the tank.

Increased operational reliability

Through the separation of beer and hop sludge, downstream filter systems or separators are relieved and protected against uncontrolled blockages. The subsequent filtration is more economical, the operational reliability of the separators increases and losses during desludging are reduced.


The innovation can be retrofitted at any time (mobile frame unit) and can be flexibly used in all phases of fermentation and storage.

The BrauKon HopSteiner is available in two output ranges with an average throughput of approx. 50hl/h and 100hl/h. The BrauKon HopSteiner was developed in collaboration with the company Simon H. Steiner Hopfen GmbH, Mainburg.
