This traditional press has a 12 litre capacity and is great for all kinds of home brewing. Ideal for pressing apples to make cider (as well as a other fruits for fruit juice), this attractive, traditionally styled 12 litre fruit press will produce plenty of juice from your apple harvest.
Well designed and constructed to the highest standard, the press comprises a steel base plate with a hardwood pressing basket. The base plates features a lip for easy juice collection as well as a wide stance for stability.
The feet of the press have small anchoring holes if needed additional stability; meaning the whole unit can be firmly attached to the floor to ensure the press stays in the correct position when pressing large quantities of juice. This press also features a cross bar and T handle set up, that enables the pressing plate to be solid and the basket not to have a spindle running up through the centre (as is found on simpler models). This increases the capacity and makes filling and pressing a simpler task as it does not have to accommodate this spindle
To use, secure the stand and unwind the pressing plate to the full extension by twisting the T Handle anti-clockwise. Once extended, unfasten the cross bar fixing on the left hand side and rotate the bar and handle towards the front, exposing the pressing basket. The straining bag can now be placed into to the wooden pressing drum, and the cross bar can be fixed securely back in place. Now, add your produce to be pressed (we recommend pulping the apples before using the press with a scratter).
Simply turn the T Handle clockwise to move the pressing plate towards the base of the press; the fruit juices will begin flowing out of the recesses in the basket, into the funnel and then can be collected in a bucket or container.
