  • Loss of wort and considerable beer waste
  • High carry-over of solids to wort cooler may cause fouling 
  • Potential high disposal cost of waste trub


  • Recover 99% of wort otherwise lost as trub, yielding more beer
  • Reduced whirlpool time and less energy and water consumption
  • Higher hop utilization from counter-current flushing of solids
  • Reduced disposal and reduced fouling/clogging in wort cooler
  • Convert trub into valuable by-product

Wort cooling

Cool your wort after boiling.
