Description

Hydropress Fruit Grape Apple Wine Press

A hydro-powered approach to the fruit press: Water pressure delivered through your garden hose powers this unique fruit pressing machine. As simple as it is effective, the hydropress consists principally of two parts: An outer, perforated stainless steel basket and an expandable inner rubber bladder. Before water pressure is applied, the rubber bladder occupies a small cylindrical space in the center of the assembly. The space surrounding the bladder (21G/80L or 10G/40L) is filled with your crushed fruit, then the pressure lid is secured on top. With the turn of a ball valve, the heavy duty rubber bladder of the hydropress expands and juice starts flowing through the perforations of the basket. Moments later you have great volumes of juice in your bucket, and spent pulp that's really spent.

Fast transition: Opening the drain valve quickly returns the bladder of the hydropress to its original size, and the pressure lid is removed. Lift the basket over onto a tarp or cart, lift up the basket's mesh liner bag, the pomace (spent pulp) drops out, and you're ready for the next fill cycle. Extracting a high yield of juice from your fruit doesn't get any faster, or easier, than this.

Our well-built hydropress works equally well as a wine press/destemmed grape press, apple press, pear press, general fruit press.

  • “This hydropress made the pressing almost ridiculously easy. We pressed for about a 10-15 minute cycle with two men handling the lifting and dumping of the dry mash inside the stainless steel cylinder. Very happy we made the purchase.”

  • Press for apple cider
    By on - Verified Buyer
    A full to the top press holds 160 lbs of ground apples. 140 lbs would be a comfortable fit. The press gave me 12 gallons from 160 lbs of apples. I pressed it for thirty minutes. Would be difficult to empty the dry mash if you are not very strong. I bear hugged the metal screen to lift it over the bladder then dumped it in a barrel. Otherwise you would have to scoop all the dry mash out by hand.
    Moderator:

    A note for other readers' benefit: Most users press for a much shorter time than thirty minutes. Also, when we use the press here we lift the perforated stainless cylinder off, leaving the mesh bag and mash standing on the press pan. Then you can just pull the bag down and remove the mash by hand-raking it onto a shovel or into a bucket. Because you definitely wouldn't want to have to reach down into the cylinder to remove the mash! If the cylinder doesn't lift free at first, pushing down a little on some of the mash will let it separate. Thank you very much for your review Dave, we appreciate it!

  • Speed production & make your life easier

    This was a long-considered purchase after a previous season hand pressing apples. It made the pressing almost ridiculously easy. We pressed for about a 10-15 minute cycle with two men handling the lifting and dumping of the dry mash inside the stainless steel cylinder. We were very happy we made the purchase. You will want to allow the press after cleaning to thoroughly dry before putting it away. We had a small amount of rust at the weld joints when it was less than 100% dry. My only larger concern is the life of the bladder, it seems very durable but we plan to purchase another prior to pressing in the fall.

  • Cider preparation in no time
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I used the Electric Apple Grinder and Stainless Hydropress from Pleasant Hill Grain for the first time last fall and was thoroughly impressed. Prior to purchasing this equipment, I ground the apples with a hand-crank mill and used a manual press. With the electric grinder and hydropress, I get substantially more yield in a fraction of the time. Once I've filled the hydropress with mash and start the water flow, I generally have about 5 gallons of cider in less than 15 minutes. I make more cider in three hours, with less work, than all day the old way. I definitely recommend the grinder and hydropress.

    An excellent product that takes much of the labor out of pressing fruit.
