The explosion of IPA's over the past years is a testament to the incredible flavor combinations that have been obtained by brewers seeking to gain more from their hop selections and techniques. One of the most popular additions to breweries over this same time period has been the whirlpool arm. Originally whirlpools were used to push sediment to the center of your kettle and avoid trub from entering the fermenter. However brewers quickly discovered much more interesting uses when attempting to fully maximize hop flavor and aromas in their beer.


By continually recirculating wort in a vortex fashion, brewers found that a whirlpool arm can positively impact the beer's flavor profile at various temperatures. By providing more surface contact to hop material when passing over and through wort during the constant agitation of a whirlpool, modern dank IPA's were born! For explosive hop flavors the whirlpool arm has become a standard in any IPA lovers brewhouse.

With a Hangover®, whirlpooling becomes an easy addition to your brewery. No need to buy new vessels or spend time and money making additions to your kettles. Simply attach a Hangover® and whirlpool arm to your kettle.

Finally, being fully adjustable, you can completely control the depth and angle of your vortex. This allows you to use the attachment in kettles ranging from 5 gallon all the way to 1 barrel sizes.
