Hop Extraction for Brewery

Save Money and Make Better Beer

The ShockWave Power™ Reactor (SPR™) cavitation technology by Hydro Dynamics, Inc. (HDI) can dramatically increase hop utilization for breweries.  With the proliferation of microbreweries the demand for hops and the prices have increased.  When the SPR™ technology is applied to the different processes within the brew-house, combined with expertise in hop utilization, it allows brewers to produce bitter beers with:

  • 50%-90% less bittering hops
  • 50%-75% less dry hopping
  • Impart other flavors like fruits, spices and chocolate
  • Increased hopping speed
  • Minimized protein damage
  • Sell more finished beer with less beer soaked hop waste

The SPR™ technology is marketed cooperatively with partner Apotek Solutions LLC (Apotek).
