Brewbot

Brewing your own beer is a bit of a daunting task, particularly if you’ve never done it before and don’t have the time to tend to the process in its entirety. Throwing a fair amount of money at the problem – i.e. buying a Brewbot – can definitely help simplify things. This dresser-sized all-in-one brewing system comes with everything you’ll need to start brewing, minus ingredients and an iPhone (Android compatibility coming later). Create or choose a recipe and hit start in the app; Brewbot handles most of the logistical work, telling you when to add grain on brew day, keeping precise tabs on temperature, water volume, and timing, ultimately outputting up to 5.2 gallons of delicious craft beer per batch. And, if your brewed beer doesn’t quite hit the spot , feel free to tweak and customize your recipes until everything is just right.
