Picobrew Zymatic – Fully Automated Beer Brewing Appliance

Picobrew Zymatic

From MoreBeer: The PicoBrew Zymatic® is a fully automated all-grain brewing appliance, built to brew 2.5 gallons at a time. There are numerous reasons why we love this new all-grain brewery, but we recognize it may not be for everyone. That being said, the Zymatic® is perfect if:

– You’re wanting extreme repeatability. The Zymatic® can remember individual batches, and if you want to replicate one, its as easy as loading up the same ingredients and selecting that brew.
– You want to brew all-grain, but are restricted on space. This unit is extremely compact, making space almost a non-factor when compared to traditional all-grain setups.
– Time is an issue. Set up and clean up are much quicker and easier, and since the Zymatic® is completely automated, you don’t need to be there to monitor temperatures, open valves, turn on burners, etc.

The Zymatic® also runs on 120 v electricty, and plugs into any standard 3-prong outlet. It is WiFi capable, so you can load your recipes without being right next to your computer. If you have to leave during the brew, you can monitor the whole process from your smartphone!

Same Day Shipping on Select Blichmann Gear

Blichmann Engineering BoilerMaker

Here’s the deal… Most of the time Blichmann Gear is dropped shipping directly from Blichmann Engineering.  That’s Dandy.  It’s good for homebrew shops because they don’t have to stock and ship these items.  The fine folks at Blichmann take care of it all.  The downside with that is the possibility of an extended lead time.  Three weeks or more isn’t out of the question.

Enter Great Fermentations.  Great Great Fermentations is located in the fine state of Indiana.  As such they seem to have a mind meld going on with Blichmann Engineering.  They probably all hang out at basketball games and such.  I imagine some level of frollicking is involved.  Anyway GF is quick on the uptake with regards to Blichmann Gear.  For example… check out their extensive line of replacement parts.

Great Fermentations has stocked some Blichmann Gear in house and is guaranteeing same day shipping (for orders placed by 3 PM EST) on select gear!  No waiting three weeks!

120V Blichmann RIMS Rocket Now Available

Blichmann RIMS-Rocket

I just received word from Great Fermentations that the 120 V version of Blichmann’s RIMS Rocket is now available.

The RIMS Rocket features an immersion heating coil housed inside of a HopRocket Canister.  Existing HopRocket owners can pick up a conversion kit or you can pick up a bundle that includes a HopRocket.  The new 120v flavor is available to order now both in conversion kit and bundled form.  Note that 240v models are also available.

More about the HopRocket… “The HopRocket gives you one tool that can be used either as a hop back when transferring your wort from the kettle to your fermenter, or as an in-line hop infuser (aka Randalizer) for your dispensing system.”

The RIMS-Rocket ends up being a 3 in 1 combo.  You can use it as a hop back, a Randalizer and as a heating element in your RIMS (Recirculation Infusion Mash System) System.
