Customer quotes

“Our Ziemann Whirlpool is the gem of our brewhouse. It enables minimum turbidity in combination with shortest Whirlpool rest periods because of its unique design. No matter if it’s our Prototype double IPA with 60 bitter units or our Hardcore IPA with 150 bitter units, there is always a compact trub cone in the center, which doesn’t collapse when the wort is strained. I’ve not heard of any performing better than the one I bought from Ziemann.”

Martin Dickie
BrewDog PLC, Ellon, Scotland

“Our yields have improved dramatically. This Ziemann brewhouse technology and this unique whirlpool design help us to get the last drop of wort out of the trub, even with the Rodeo Clown, our Double IPA with an OG of 21.5°P and 85 Bitter Units.”
