Effective hop separation during dry hopping

BrauKon HopSteiner

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.

  • Reduced beer losses during cold hopping
  • Improved beer aroma due to targeted removal of the spent hops after the cold hopping process
  • Easier handling of the downstream plant technology by removing the hop spent grains
  • Easy to use in existing fermentation and storage cellars

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.
