Brewbot is coming


I was lucky enough to be introduced to a great company by Sandy Mckinnon at Pentech Ventures called Brewbot.

I was instantly hooked and ordered a brewing robot straight away.

The concept is pretty simple, brewing from your iPhone. The reality is that brewing is a very technical process, much more complex than the beer kits that my local Boots used to sell in the 1970s. In fact, the level of tech and science in a brewing robot is quite immense.

Brewbot is designed for the amateur brewer and also the expert who really wants to experiment with brewing in one device. I liked to call it the “Nespresso machine for Beer”.

“Real brewers” will probably turn their nose up a little at Brewbot, just as Baristas don’t love Nespresso, but for me convenience is the key to any internet device like this. The access to information about usage is incredible and you should be able to run automatic replenishment of hops etc based on usage.

I am really looking forward to getting this device – it’s only a few months away – but I am excited already – I have bought some great books including Clone Brew which allows you to brew your favourite pint at home.
