11 Litre Traditional Cross Beam Press (F20)

A novel and innovative twist on the classic design, the cross beam range of presses make pressing your own fruit even easier. The name comes from the ability to swing the entire cross beam (and press mechanism) out of the way of the cage to make loading and cleaning super easy. To load the press, you simply raise the press plate to its highest position, undo two screw catches, and swing the cross beam out of your way.

The 11 Litre cross beam press features the same design as the traditional spindle models and is truly beautifully made, with a heavy-duty aluminium base sitting on a powder-coated heavy-duty steel frame, a beech cage bound with enameled steel rings, a stainless steel spindle and stainless steel pressing plate.

Such is the quality of this press it comes with a 5-year guarantee as standard (excludes misuse or incorrect storage).

  • Cage Dimensions: 21cm x 28cm
  • Gross weight: 11.70kg
  • Grape capacity per pressing: 25kg (55lb)
  • Crushed apple capacity per pressing: 9kg (20lb)
  • Approximate juice yield per pressing: 3.5 (6.1 pints)

Please note: Colours on this particular press may vary.

A Small Fruit Crusher

This fantastically designed crusher makes light work of preparing fruits for pressing in your winepress. The simple yet effective design of the crusher features a pair of ridged rollers with claws (cutting knives made from acid-resistant alloy is the correct terminology) that grab the fruit-driven by an enamel-coated handwheel. The crusher is designed to do around 350 to 500 kilos of fruit per hour and weighs 15 kilos. Hard fruit still needs to be chopped before it goes through the crushing process even with these sharp knives!

The crusher (made of stainless steel) is supported by a painted steel frame. It is recommended that the crusher is placed on a solid structure with a bucket beneath before use. The simple design means the crusher is easy to clean and only needs a quick rinse down after use. It's more suited to hard fruits (apples, pears, etc.) than soft fruits - all stones need to be removed first.

This kit has all the equipment you need to ferment and finish your cider.

The kit can be used for making cider with apples you have pressed yourself, or alternatively by using one of our popular cider kits.

Kit Contents:

  • 1x 30 Litre Food grade Clear Fermenting Bucket with lid Airlock and Grommet
  • 1x 25 Litre Bottom Tap Pressure Barrel Complete with 50ml Cap “O” Ring and Pressure Valve System

  • 1x Steriliser (everything that comes into contact with the beer needs to be spotless)
  • 1x Extendable Luxury Siphon with anti sediment end, tap and bucket clip for 25 Litre (for transferring the beer from the bucket to the barrel)
  • 1x 10 Pack of 8g CO2 bulbs
  • 1x Bulb Holder (for adding extra pressure to the barrel)
  • 1x Mixing Spoon or Paddle

See our "Bottles Bundle" if you'd prefer a strongly carbonated cider that can be chilled in the fridge.

Straining Bag (Large/Coarse)

An essential accessory to strain fruit either during or after pressing. Some users prefer to use straining bags to line their presses before they load in their fruit, to prevent un-pressed pulp from escaping through the sides of the cage. Using a straining bag ensures you get every last bit of juice from your fruit, with non of the bits you don't want!

Note: Additional carriage/import costs may be incurred for our international customers. If in doubt please contact us!
