BrewArt Beer Droid
What is it? “The world’s first fully automated” home brewing system. hoW does it Work? It makes 10-litre batches of craftish ale, using the extract brewing method. The raw materials for each brew – malt powder, liquid hop extract, enhancers (malted barley) and yeast – are contained in nicely branded BrewPrints, covering dozens of styles from Czech pils to Irish stout; the brewing process is controlled via the BrewArt app and a control panel on the Beer Droid. Cool name! Yes. It adds appeal to something that, frankly, has the aesthetic charm of an anti-ship mine. hoW’s the beer? After 10 days of fermenting, and a couple of weeks’ resting in bottles .... it’s very nice! And you can bask in a self-satisfied glow, knowing you made it yourself. anything else? If you’re flush, you can use BrewArt’s BrewFlo ($699) – a temperature-controlled beer dispenser for “that genuine pub pour feeling”.
