PicoBrew connected DIY craft beer appliance

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, March 22, 2016

A gadget to make brewing beer as simple as brewing coffee.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    It’s due to arrive this spring.   A new home appliance called the PicoBrew Zymatic.  It uses pre-packaged ingredients designed to let anyone…no experience necessary…brew high quality craft beer at home.    VP Donald Brewer…you heard the name right…

“You simply insert the pack into the machine, fill a small keg up with water and the machine automatically detects which pack you’ve inserted.  It’s a smart device so it goes out across the Internet, it pulls down the recipe processing information, so it knows how to brew that particular beer.”

You’ll be able to create your own recipes too.  The system isn’t cheap.  Pre order pricing is about seven hundred dollars.   There’s more info at PicoBrew.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
