Paul Mueller Company

maxxLūp Hop Dosing System

Go beyond the hops with our hop infusion system that works with a variety of adjuncts including cone or pellet hops, coffee, spices, and fruit. Our hop circulation tank provides a pressure related solution that solves the inconvenient process of dry hopping while being more versatile than any other hop dosing system on the market. 

Using a removable screen design, the maxxLūp allows for handling versatile ingredients with increased efficiency. 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.
