Nah, they’re a beer company. What do they know about marketing.

Higher pressure needs more back pressure. This can be done with more line or a flow restrictor

Posts I saw say this is in Canada. Take 20% off the price for USD but taxes are likely different as well.

Can always blend it if the whisky character is too much.

I draw hot wort off the kettle into a Pyrex measuring cup and inject the hop shot into the near-boiling wort. Drawing the wort into the syringe a few times cleans it out pretty well. The measuring cup is dumped into the kettle - done.
This is what I had done as well, but the above is less effort and can be done ahead of time.

Tried Eric’s trick today. Mixed the hop shot with DME. Maybe 1/8 cup DME to 5ml of hop shot. Final product looked like saw dust. Still sat on top of the break for a bit, but did manage to get into the wort and didn’t leave everything tacky. I’ll weigh it out tomorrow and figure out the ideal ratio.

Best tip in years.

Picobrew pushes the “beer you can’t get can be made at home” narrative. Personally I think that is a bit stretch.


I agree. People should buy whatever the heck they want though.
I’m not saying people shouldn’t buy it if they want. I’m saying that “selling point” is dumb.

Not if you live in say Indonesia.
From the guy that argues beers cannot be cloned.

I don't think the Pico quite fits the model. K-cups are quick, idiot proof and have a low per unit price. Pico-paks are priced a bit over what I consider fair, have room for error, and take at least a week for the payout.

I think the probe placement is the issue. Place it towards the bottom. I have mine attached to a can of soda and wrapped in foil to prevent cycling.

What temp is your controller set to? Where is the probe place?

Features don't match the price IMO, but it's nice to see more  fermenters coming on the market. For ages it was glass, buckets and then better bottles. Now there are new options every few months.

The Pub / Treated Sewage Water Beer
« on: September 20, 2017, 10:37:01 AM »
Local club is doing this with a purification company.  Brewing a bunch of beers and serving at an event. Not sure the source water, but the treated water was over 50ppm dissolved solids. That makes me a bit suspicious.
