Crafting beer can be an arduous process. You need some hops, obviously. A few bits of barley. Maybe some wheat? And – well - we forget the rest.
Not that this lack of expertise will stop us brewing our own in the near future, because here comes Brewie, the world's first fully automated home-brewery, requiring the least work possible and delivering some of the finest brews imaginable.
Simply place the ingredients into the machine (a la fabric softener into a washing machine), scan your special ID card and bingo, tinker with the numerous settings to prompt the exact flavour you want, wait for it to do its stuff and then wait for your phone to alert you that it’s ready to serve.
Given you can alter ingredients, modify recipes, create new ones and choose one of the 23 parameters to help customise the taste before it brews, It’ll be your very own signature drink. Take a look at the video below for more on that.
Pre-order prices start from $999 and you can quicken the shipping process by donating to its $100,000 crowd funding target on IndieGoGo, where it’s already a third of the way there.
Yep, we’ve come a long way since the Sodastream.
