Hydropress Fruit Grape Apple Wine Press


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.

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!

  • 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.

  • 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....

  • Impressive!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Apples finally ripe enough to use our new electric grinder and hydro press from Pleasant Hill Grain. Impressive! What used to be an afternoon project with hand crank grinder and press now took under one hour. Plus the grinding and pressing results were so superior that more juice flowed from the same volume of apples. Also very pleased with the quality of the machines. Only hitch, as others have described, was attaching a hose to the hydro press intake. Despite two hose clamps the connection leaked significantly. Solved the problem by adding lots of plumbers' tape. Otherwise, couldn't be happier!

  • Excellent Press--Great Support
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This is my second press from PHG and third piece of apple-related equipment. The buying process was simple, the delivery uncomplicated and speedy, and setting up the press a breeze. It worked fast, efficiently, and I'm very happy with the hydropress. It's solidly made and I expect it to give me years of service. Early on, we had an issue with the pressure relief valve, but a quick phone call to customer service helped us diagnose it as a "problem" with superior water service pressure, not a fault with the press. The mesh lining used to help contain the pulp is likely the weak spot in the setup--certainly worth considering ordering a backup so you don't get caught in midst press with a torn liner. All in all, a superior product, one I'm happy to write a review for.
