*Disclaimer: Our Company is by no means affiliated with or intentionally infringing upon any other product or brewery.

Using only the highest quality of beer brewing ingredients, you'll be able to select your recipe from a library of hundreds of master recipes and, with the push of a few buttons, you'll have perfect beer in as little as one week. Fully customizable and community-integrated, it will change the way you both brew and experience beer for the rest of your life!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Turn on and grab a pre-created Brewing Pack , water, and yeast.

 

Using the LCD screen, select the type of beer you would like to brew from our built-in recipe library - or - create your own recipe through our App.

 

 

Open the panels on top of it and pull out the lids to expose the MiniKegs where you will pour your ingredients. Following the LCD screen’s instructions, pour in the correct amount of water (typically around 1.5L) and the correct.  

Every ingredient has a dedicated container/compartment.

 

 

Press "Start" and it will automatically boil your malts, mix in the hops, add in the yeast, and ferment for 1 to 3 weeks. Then - enjoy!

 

Our goal has always been to create a one-stop-shop where craft beer enthusiasts can simply and effortlessly brew amazing tasting beers without having to be a master brewer. While most beer brewing machines have their body, kegs, and some variable components that require a steep learning curve to be mastered, it combines both the "Brewing Tank" and the "Fermentation Tank" into one unique, structurally advanced body. Through the LCD screen, mashing tank window, and the app, you can easily program, monitor, and create a brick-and-mortar brewing experience in your very own kitchen!

 

 

 

 

With the the library of built-in recipes at your fingertips, you’ll be able to create Pilsners, IPAs, Porters, Weizens, Lagers, Stouts, and heck - you can even brew a batch of Blueberry Beer! All ingredients will be sourced from the best certified US suppliers.

You’ll have a variety of customizable combinations that have been curated by our Master Brewer - Aobo Sun - who is a certified sommelier from the Doemens College of Beer in Germany. We will continue to add new recipes to the library which will be automatically updated through your wifi connections, so if it’s not there today, you can bet it’ll be there soon!

 

 

 

Outfitted with state-of-the-art sensors, it allows for maximum control and feedback with minimal brewing experience and attention. You can monitor the brew time, brew phase, temperature, and - for the advanced users - you can even monitor the Saccharify Curve. The user interface is intuitive and easy-to-use with sliding scales for variables such as alcohol content, bitterness, flavor profile and more!

 

 

 

As any home brewer knows, the post-brewing cleanup process can be a messy hassle - so we’ve taken care of it for you. First, you can remove the built-in MiniKegs (1.6 Gallons) with a simple handle-pull and store them to be enjoyed at any time without having to move or carry it. Second, it has a built-in, automated, self-cleaning system that, with some added fresh water, will take care of the clean-up process on its own. Simply add in a liter of fresh water, scroll through the menu on the LCD screen to the “Clean/Rinse” feature, select it, and it will clean itself in a few hours!

 

Through the Community social network, you’ll be able to share recipes, create virtual tasting parties, and even sell your recipes to other users! Our team will test your recipe before verifying and releasing it to our Market. With this amazing feature, we hope to create an economy where the best home craft brewers can be rewarded through crowdsourcing.

Risks and challenges

1. Manufacturing: while we have the apparatuses for production setup for the hardware manufacturing, we cannot 100% percent guarantee our product will be ready for delivering on time but we of course are aiming for on-time or ahead-of-time delivery.

2. Export: we have been researching the process for processing permissions and licensing documents in order to export from China and import to U.S. or other countries. We will try to get as much information as possible and fulfill the documents to get rid of the risk.

3. Shipping: we have contact with the shipping companies which can ship products to US, and we still need to contact more suppliers for other territories.
