Hydropress Fruit Grape Apple Wine Press


Tariffs could soon be imposed on three categories of PHG products: Fruit presses, fruit grinders, and corn shellers. Prices will jump sharply if this happens, so we encourage you not to wait once you’ve made a decision!


Apple orchard harvestA hydro-powered approach to the fruit press/grape press: Water pressure delivered through your garden hose powers this unique fruit pressing machine. As effective as it is simple, 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 cider press 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 fruit press 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, cider press, pear press, general fruit press. It is not suitable for hard fruits or vegetables such as olives, carrots, or beets, or for citrus fruits.

  • “Well, I just want to say you guys are terrific! Your prices are great, the products are top of the line, but most importantly to me, the service is perfect. Thanks a bunch!”

As with any press, to get good juice yield from apples you need to pulp them first. Proper pulping lets you get three to four times as much juice from the apples, compared to pressing the fruit whole. Our Electric Apple Grinder is perfectly suited to the capacity of the hydro press.

    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.

  • Hydropress AWESOME
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I got the hydropress and the electric apple grinder. We have 5 apple trees that were overwhelmingly producing this year. So much simpler, faster, better, and great yields of wonderful juice. Very easy to use. Only wish I bought it earlier in the season. Our apples were falling faster than I could put them up. Now, as quick as I can get them picked, washed and ground I have gallons of juice pouring out. Running out of containers to put it all in. The peace it has given me this season is worth the price for the higher end grinder and press. Thank you. It was delivered quickly and easily put together and into use. Awesome!

  • Easy order and quick delivery
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Used once so far. A wheelbarrow full of apples made about 28 quarts of juice that was clear, minimal sediment, and soooooo good. Quick and very easy to use, and easy cleanup. The worst was the grinding. We bought the manual grinder as well, it takes muscle and the most time, but my husband did that part so I can't complain. I fed the hopper, he turned the wheel, works better if only one or two apples are in at a time. Now everyone wants to borrow our brand new equipment....

  • Excellent Quality and a Great Price
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I shopped very hard for this press. Looked at several at the same price with much lower quality. Others of the same quality, but much higher prices. Service was excellent, delivery was prompt (2-3 days), and there were no freight charges whatsoever. Highly recommend your company.

  • Rock Solid
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Only thing I could say bad about it was you'll most likely need to get your own hoses. There was a 3/4" soft pvc hose for the inlet and nothing for the outlet, no adapter for a garden hose but we are using a pump with a push fit anyways. need 1/2" hose for the drain.

    Other than that, rock solid.

  • 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.

    A note for other readers' benefit: Most users press for a far shorter time than thirty minutes per batch. Also, when we use the press here, we lift the perforated stainless cylinder off, leaving the mesh bag and spent 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 your production & make life easier
    By on - Verified Buyer
    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 guys 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 to thoroughly dry after cleaning before putting it away. We had a small amount of light 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.
