PicoBrew Zymatic @ Great Fermentations – Two Options Available

The PicoBrew Zymatic is an electric automated brew house.  Plug in your recipe and it takes care of the mash, hop additions and the boil.  Control and monitor your brew via wifi or ethernet via PicoBrew’s website.  When you’re done, toss the grain and hops containers into the dishwasher.

Great Fermentations has just picked up the Zymatic.  Their offering is unique in that they offer both a version with a keg and without a keg.  If you already have a ball lock keg, you can save $100.  Systems start out at $1,899.

Reader Tip: 2 Gallon Cooler for Mini Mash – $9.09

Thanks to HBF Reader Jonathan for this tip!  There are 8 Ways to Connect with HBF

Igloo 2-Gallon Legend Jug

2 Gallon Cooler – Partial Mash & Small Batch Mash Tun

Two gallon cooler, marked down to $9.09 at Wal Mart.  In store pickup is free.  Shipping is free with a $50 order.

Jonathan Says: “This would work great as a mini mash tun with a mesh bag to do small batch all grain (1-2 gallons) or even to use to make starters.”  HBF Note: As far as use for starters, my guess is Jonathan is talking about doing a mash for an all grain starter.  You’d want to be careful and maybe avoid fermenting a starter in this due to scratches and crevices in the spigot area.
