Picobrew Pico Classic Brewer – $299.99 via Massdrop

Picobrew Pico Classic Brewer

About the Picobrew Pico Classic Brewer via Massdrop: “With the PicoBrew Pico Classic brewing appliance, you can brew award-winning craft beers at home, from scratch—all without hoses, buckets, bottles, or messy cleanup. Capable of brewing 5 liters of beer, the Pico Classic allows you to taste each beer just how the brewer intended: fresh off the line. The Pico Classic works by using PicoPaks, packaged ingredient kits that have premeasured grains, hops, and yeast. Just pop the PicoPak in and let the machine go to work. The entire process, from PicoPak to pint, takes about 7 to 10 days with fast fermentation, or 10 to 14 days with standard fermentation. The best part? You can choose from more than 150 different award-winning beer recipes from some of the top breweries in the world (five of which are included here). And if you want to create something new, you can make your own recipe on the PicoBrew website. Everything is easy to navigate and adjust via the OLED display. PicoBrew: Craft beer your way!”
