hangover from the side If you are a brewer that wants to take advantage of pro accessories such as these, you typically have 3 choices. Upgrade to much more expensive equipment, attempt to drill a hole in their kettle and risk damage / user error, or send your kettles out to custom fabrication shops for ports to be added.

Give Your Brew Day A Spin With A Whirlpool Arm!

The explosion of IPA's over the past years is a testament to the incredible flavor combinations that have been obtained by brewers seeking to gain more from their hop selections and techniques. One of the most popular additions to breweries over this same time period has been the whirlpool arm. Originally whirlpools were used to push sediment to the center of your kettle and avoid trub from entering the fermenter. However brewers quickly discovered much more interesting uses when attempting to fully maximize hop flavor and aromas in their beer.

By continually recirculating wort in a vortex fashion, brewers found that a whirlpool arm can positively impact the beer's flavor profile at various temperatures. By providing more surface contact to hop material when passing over and through wort during the constant agitation of a whirlpool, modern dank IPA's were born! For explosive hop flavors the whirlpool arm has become a standard in any IPA lovers brewhouse.

With a Hangover™, whirlpooling becomes an easy addition to your brewery. No need to buy new vessels or spend time and money making additions to your kettles. Simply attach the Hangover™ with it's solid thumb screw connection and use our quick disconnects to simply clip the whirlpool arm onto your setup.

Upgrade your equipment anytime without losing any of the benefits as you move along the path to mastering larger and more complex batches.

When taking the leap to all grain brewing, sparging becomes an inevitable part of your brew day. The sparge is an age old old process of rinsing your grain after the mash to obtain the highest concentration of sugars in your wort and is an important factor in maximizing brewhouse efficiency.

Keep Your Fermenter Clean with With A No Mess Hop Spider!

The hop spider for the Hangover

As brewers, we all have to make a choice when adding hops to our boils. Do we chuck them into the kettle and deal with the mess? Or, do we use a hop spider to keep the material contained while extracting only the precious oils and aroma we desire into our wort?

Nowadays it seems that many of us are becoming aware to the possibility of flavor differences due to excess hop and break matter getting into our fermenters. For those of us that have decided a hop spider is the way to go, the majority of hop spiders on the market are large, bulky, and frankly do not do a good enough job to warrant the high costs.

Check Out Our Hop Spider Here

We set out to remedy this issue by building an exclusive component for the Hangover™. Using tubular 304 stainless steel or hardened copper, we created an adjustable framework that attaches to your Hangover™. This system allows you to position and suspend a re-usable and easily replaceable fine mesh bag into the center of your boil. No more bulky spiders on the side of your kettle that affect your whirlpool, leave a mess, or are hard to clean! Only clean, simple, hop infusions!
