For years I’ve wanted to brew my own beer. I stopped at many beer and wine supply stores. It was always the same, so much hardware, pots and pans, cooling coils, hydrometers, and so on. I live in 800 sq. ft, that won’t work.
I saw an ad for Pico C and was interested, I went on Amazon December 4, 2017 and purchased my Pico C. Wow, I had it the next day. The system arrived in first class condition, well packed. The unit is just over 12” wide and 16” high and fits on the kitchen counter when I brew a batch of beer. The rest of the time I store it in a closet. The brew keg and serving keg are well made and I store them in the original boxes when not in use. I ordered the 5 one liter bottle kit and like being able to take one or two with me.
The manual is online and I put it on my phone in I-Books and it is there when I need it. The brewing unit is wifi enabled and you can watch the mash and hop process on line. You can also see what other owners are brewing and where they are in the world.
I drink my share of craft beer and the first 3 brews, Christmas Duck Porter, Atomic Amber Ale, and Irish Dry Stout were dead on. I use natural carbonation. All of my family and friends agreed the brews were as good as the craft breweries.
The manual is very clear but the videos they have online worked even better for getting me up and running. Setup was very simple and once you explore the different parts that come in the box it all starts to make sense how it works and what the different parts are for.
My first session was the Stargazer IPA from Rooftop brewing in Seattle. If anything the process was too simple; I followed the instructions for loading the Pikopak and water and then hit the button to start. The PicoBrew started making noises and humming and told me it would be done in less than 3 hours. I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t really telling me what it was doing. So I wandered off to login online and see what information showed there. What a pleasant surprise! There is a graph of temperatures and a better description of what part of the process the Pico is running through at the time. The process concludes with the beer pumped into a cute little keg ready for fermentation. You let it sit until room temp (24 hours) and then add the yeast. The keg then sits in a warm room for a week or two depending on the recipe to magically generate alcohol. At this point you use the PicoBrew to pump the beer into this cute little 5L dispensing keg and then add sugar. Once the keg has sat for a couple weeks it becomes carbonated and is ready to drink. At this point I ran into my only real challenge…
I came home on a Friday and was excited to crack into my first beer. Just before I opened it I though “wait a second; wont it start to go flat once I open it?”. I wasn’t sure I was ready to commit to roughly 13 bottles worth of 7.0 ABV in one weekend. I was able to solve this problem by calling a couple of friends and we were able to power through most of it while I showed them how to brew my next batch.
Like I said; lots of fun through the whole process.
As for the PicoC itself, lots of things are done for you, but there is still enough you can tweak and modify (mess up too) that made it a good place to start for me. Clean-up is a cinch, but I must admit having the bonus of the sous vide is worth its weight in gold, especially after almost purchasing one for Christmas. I do highly recommend after using the serving keg, consider buying a second or some bottles. I decided to purchase bottles (0.5 and 1 liter) so I can keep going without having to buy another serving keg (there not my favorite to clean anyway).
One thing I would say where they could improve is in some of the instructions (I looked at the PicoS online videos since many of them are applicable). Specifically, I’d love to see a high-level overview for each beer from a brewery. For example, when brewing a BiBock (lager), I was essentially flying blind until reaching out to the support team. They quickly helped resolve that issue with the basic instructions on fermentation time and lagering time.
Overall, I’d heard support was a little bit of an issue for some, but they’ve been great with me. First time was with fixing a delivery issue (no yeast included with the PicoPak), and the second time was with the aforementioned “lager instructions”. Very pleased with the overall experience.
