How it works

After their introduction in the Alhop, the hop pellets are disaggregated in the beer and kept homogenized in the cross flow recirculation loop. While the Alhop is continuously fed with beer, dry hopped beer flows continuously out through the specifically designed strainer. 

Once the extraction process is over, the beer trapped in the system is recovered by concentration and diafiltration process. For alpha acids recovery, the hop slurry is further washed off with deaerated water (DAW) to end with a pumpable suspension of hops in DAW.

How can we help you?

We don’t offer a one-size-fits-all approach so before we make any recommendations we want to hear your side of the story and speak to your personally about your aims, ambitions and requirements in terms of dry hopping specifically and your brewery in general.

That information is stored and processed in accordance to our privacy policy.
