With this set you have everything you need to get your harvested apples pulped, pomaced and pressed ready for home brewing; this kit includes an 18 litre press and a manual apple scratter. Ideal for pressing apples to make cider (as well as other fruits for fruit juice), the attractive, traditionally styled 18 litre fruit press will produce plenty of juice from your apple harvest, while the manual pulper will scrat the apples with ease. It can be placed on top of the apple press so that the pulp falls directly into the straining bag, ready for pressing.
Well designed and constructed to the highest standard, the press comprises a steel base plate with a hardwood pressing basket. The base plate 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, for additional stability; meaning the whole unit can be firmly attached to the floor ensuring the press stays in the correct position when pressing large quantities of juice.
To use, secure the stand and thread the pole into position, then place the straining bag in to the wooden pressing drum, and add your produce to be pressed from the scratter. Once the fruit pulp is in place, set up the half circle wooden fruit plates so they are at a relatively even level (they will even out once the fruit are being pressed), then sit the spacing blocks on top of the plates ready for pressing
When the red metal pressure plate and others have been positioned, screw on the vice nut and turn it clockwise to begin pressing. 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. The dimensions for the 18 litre fruit press are 70cm by 37cm while the scratter measures 60cm x 70cm
