Brewing your own beer is no simple task. It takes multiple batches to truly understand the process and lots of expensive equipment.  It’s time consuming and sometimes, after spending months laboring through the process, you pour your first glass and it just doesn’t taste very good.

Now you are tasked with drinking a case of sour beer or using it to create pizza dough.

Well, the folks over at Picobrew are hoping to change that with their new product, the Picobrew Zymatic, an automatic beer brewing appliance that takes the headache out of home brews. “We have invented technology that provides the quality and repeatability of a large scale brewery, but we shrank it down to countertop size,” says Jim Mitchell, Co-founder of Picobrew in their Kickstarter campaign.

The PicoBrew Zymatic, essentially automates the entire brewing process. You basically place barley in one container, hops in another, and then fill a reservoir with water. After keying in your “recipe” the Zymatic does all of the work for you.

What is also incredible about this product is that it can be monitored through any standard laptop or computer. You can literally see your progress by plugging in the apparatus.

Additionally, the Picobrew eliminates one of the most time consuming and arduous processes of the home brew—Cleaning. With the picobrew you simply remove the reservoirs from the apparatus and pop it in the dishwasher, it’s as simple as that.

Watch the PicoBrew Zymatic video below, and jump on their Kickstarter which is nearing its final 24 hours.

For only $1,599 yu can own your own Picobrew Zymatic and be drinking homemade brews with your friends and family in three months’ time.

I’m super excited to see one of these in action, hopefully one of my homebrew buddies will get down on this!
