BEERMKR is the world’s first automatic beer-brewing machine that anyone can use. It makes over a gallon of craft beer in a week’s time.
You don’t need any brewing experience to make incredible beer with BEERMKR:
Open your BEERMKR and add your grain. Our MKR KITs come with everything you need to make an excellent craft beer, but you have the option to make changes to the recipe or bring all of your own ingredients. BEERMKR works best with all-grain recipes comprised of barley, oats, and wheat, but you can also use rice, fruits, powdered sugars and syrups.
BEERMKR creates a closed and insulated environment, allowing precise temperature control throughout the beer making process.
During brewing, BEERMKR activates all of the enzymes present in the grains to break down starch and protein while achieving a system-wide pasteurization.
BEERMKR can use dry as well as liquid yeast and pellet hops (no whole cone). BEERMKR also uses Steam Hops to provide bitterness. For more info on Steam Hops, check out www.steamhops.com.
Over the next 3-7 days your beer will undergo fermentation. BEERMKR’s sensors and heat exchanger will keep the yeast at the exact temperature required by the strain and the recipe. In DIY mode, you can set this temperature. It can be in the 40s and 50s to produce authentic lagers, or in the 80s to produce an ester rich Belgian. It can even kettle sour!
When fermentation is complete, you will get a notification on your phone that it’s time to transfer your beer to the included BEERTAP. Inside the BEERTAP your beer will carbonate with the help of a CO2 gas cartridge (included in your MKR KIT).
After a few days in the refrigerator the CO2 cartridge will have fully carbonated your beer.
Go ahead and pour yourself a glass! Over the next week your beer will continue to mature. It’s best to test a little every day so you can see how that particular recipe develops over time. Some beers like IPAs are best young when the hops are fresh. Others like Imperial Stouts are best aged for at least a few weeks so all those complex flavors have time to come together.
The beer brewing process is a complex and fragile process that takes years of practice and countless hours of research to master. BEERMKR automates this process in an oxygen sealed environment with patent pending CO2 monitoring and temperature management systems. BEERMKR is connected to the BEERMKR Cloud which monitors your brew’s progress. It compares your beer’s performance to other successful batches and can make adjustments in real time if anything diverges, guaranteeing professional-grade results without any additional input from you.
This allows both beginner and veteran brewers to relish in the fun parts of brewing: exploring ingredients and flavor combinations, and drinking the finished beer.
I’m a BJCP Beer Judge, Certified Cicerone and homebrewer. I have lots of equipment to brew beer, but I’ll have to say my Beermkr is the easiest and most convenient brewing gear that I own. I highly recommend it to those that just want great beer without all the hassle of brewing 5-gallons at a time. I really prefer the 1-gallon batches and since it ferments in the Beermkr, you’re almost guaranteed delicious beer.
