BREW THE IMPOSSIBLE
Pico Model C is an automated craft brewery that brews fresh craft beer using recipes from award-winning breweries. Brew any style of beer you desire – from IPAs to session ales to stouts to porters – starting with just the press of a button. Your beer will be fermented, carbonated, and ready to enjoy in 10-14 days.
The Pico Model C uses ready-to-brew PicoPak ingredient packs that take the guesswork out of homebrewing. PicoPaks include the perfect balance of pre-measured, fresh grains, hops, and yeast so you can brew 5 liter batches of beers from a growing list of award-winning breweries from around the world available online in PicoBrew's BrewMarketplace.
RFID technology recognizes the biodegradeable PicoPak and optimizes the settings for that recipe once inserted. Modify any PicoPak to your liking by simply adjusting the alcohol percentage (abv) and bittering IBUs.
CREATE YOUR OWN
Making a custom craft beer is as easy as dragging and dropping grains, hops and yeast into a virtual PicoPak on PicoBrew’s Web site. The online FreeStyle beer crafter allows anyone to create a custom PicoPak that is sent to your home.
Monitor the automated brewing process with any Web enabled device. Everything you need is included to allow you to ferment, carbonate, and serve fresh craft beer in 10-14 days. PicoPaks are sold separately.
