 Dry Hopping Alternative

Think outside the hops with our pressure-rated system that works with a variety of adjuncts including cone or pellet hops, coffee, spices, fruit, coconut and more! Our circulation tank solves the inconvenient process of dry hopping while being more versatile than any other adjunct-dosing system on the market. 

Using a removable screen design, the maxxLūp allows for handling a wide variety of adjuncts with increased efficiency. Brewery users have reported up to a 50% reduction in ingredient amounts while still achieving the same or better sensory analysis. 

Our infusion tank sits on casters that allow you to easily move the maxxLūp from the brewhouse, where it can function as a hopback, to the cellar, where it can be used to safely dryhop without needing to access the top of a fermenter.

Infusing Spirits

The same flavor steeping process for infusing beer works for infusing spirits. If you are an industrial spirits producer and want to get different notes and flavors into your beverages, the maxxLūp dosing system can do it efficiently and safely.
