AHOP Manual

AHOP Manual: the mean and lean additive dosing module

A new generation of beers with a more pronounced and aromatic hop flavor is getting more and more interest from a broad beer drinking audience, led by the IPA (India Pale Ale) revolution. Also beers flavored with a broad array of additives (spices, wood, fruit juices,…) are taking a bigger part of the beer market.

Whilst these speciality beer volumes are increasing, the current dry-hopping techniques face challenges coping with bigger volumes of hop. Furthermore, the current processing techniques are causing brewers headaches. It’s often a time consuming, beer spoiling and complex task to get the hops in and out of the beer. Issues like blockages due to swollen hop pellets, oxygen pick-up, limited batches, cleanability and flexibility are well-known brewers’ challenges.

AHOP Manual: the manual and compact additive dosing solution

With AHOP Manual, the manual and compact version of the fully-automated hop dosing unit AHOP, Agidens makes the life of brewers at smaller breweries easier as the dosing unit takes care of the complete dosing of the additives, for example hop pellets, while keeping in mind their budget.

The same functionality is guaranteed, but with manual actions instead of automatic or recipe driven sequences. It’s also possible to use the already existing moveable centrifugal pumps.
