Tabletop Beer Brewing Machine The Size Of A Microwave

October 21, 2013


This is the Picobrew (I see you!) automatic home brewing system. Currently an already-funded Kickstarer project, the $1,600 tabletop device brews "high-quality all-grain beer" with the touch of a button (and the addition of water, grain and hops). You just add the ingredients according to your own (or a Picobrew community) recipe, and three and a half hours later your keg is ready to disconnect, ferment for a week, and PARTY TIME. Just be sure to invite me over for inaugural keg stands. "This is craft beer, GW, not Bud Light." Hey -- sometimes craft beers like to be keg standed too, you know. It's like me, sure I LOOK like the kind of guy who only attends black tie events, but-- "You're wearing athletic shorts." Well sure, you caught me on my way to the gym. "With a 40 of Old English?" What are you, my personal trainer?

Hit the jump for the Kickstarter video about the system, then start saving your money so you can buy one and start brewing me some beer like I deserve.

Thanks to Jeremy and Michael, who love good beer and hate bad beer but will still drink it because, you know -- beer.

    I don't see how its doing any long boil if the container is full of grain? And how is it chilling the wort before the yeast is pitched?

    I'm from Germany and my heart starts bleeding right now.

    I had the opportuinty a few weeks ago to see this thing up close and personal. It's primarily meant for the professional brewer, for testing out pilot batches of new beers and fine-tuning recipes before scaling up. Of course, it can be used by homebrewers as well.
    It makes 2-3 gallon batches, so not a huge amount, but decent. If you'd like to see some more photos of it, you can find some on my facebook page (from my visit to PicoBrew's place) here:
