When setting up your home brewing or wine making space, there are a few key pieces of equipment required. Starter kits such as beginners wine kits and starter beer kits are great for anyone starting out in home brewing, but for those who wish to take things to the next level, a fruit press is well worth investing in. A fruit press is designed to prepare raw materials for fermentation. A fruit press is required for extracting the juice from fruits such as pears, berries and apples, but these foods need to be pre-crushed, before extracting the juice. This can be achieved by hand or a dedicated fruit-crushing device.
