FS: Lightly used Picobrew Z2 (SF Bay Area, CA) - $2000
« on: December 08, 2021, 09:56:15 am »
Hi all,
I have a lightly used PicoBrew Z2 setup (consisting of 2x PicoBrew Z units) that I no longer use (I'm not brewing these days) and wanted to get it into a home that would make good use of it.  Each PicoBrew Z unit is capable of producing 2.5 gallons of beer, and you can use them in tandem to brew 5 gallons of beer.  It is the most automated brewing system I've seen (load ingredients, press start, come back when it's time to chill and pitch yeast) and has a lot of versatility beyond just making beer. 
Upfront disclosure: Picobrew (the company) is no longer in existence, however, there are ways to still make very good use of this fully automated brewing system.  (see the or for information)
I brewed about 6 batches of beer and about 10 batches of coldbrew coffee on it, it has been cleaned per the manufacturers guidance and I'll run another cleaning cycle before anyone takes ownership of it.
This comes with all the equipment you need to make 5 gallons of beer and then some:
2x Picobrew Z units (WiFi enabled)
2x 5gal corny kegs w/ ball lock fittings
2x corny keg insulators
All required step filter equipment, adjunct filter baskets, fittings, accessories, Ethernet cords
2x cobra taps w/ ball lock fittings
2x ball lock transfer hoses (ball lock beer out to ball lock beer out)
2x adapters for "picopacks"
1x picoferm fermentation tracking device
1x box of finish cleaning tabs (manufacturers recommended)
1x power adapter (splits 1x NEMA L14-30 male to 2x NEMA 5-15 female)
Foam control, airlocks, Picobrew special fermentation adapters, extra o-rings, cleaning brushes, etc.

At this time, available for local pickup only in San Jose, CA (I will also happily bring it to you within ~60 miles of San Jose and willing to discuss other options)
$2000 for the whole lot of equipment listed above to kick off your fully automated brewing future
OPTIONAL EXTRA: Ranco Temperature controller ($50 add on). 
DM me if you have any questions or want more information / photos.

Hi there,

Is this still available, and if so would you be willing to part out some of the items? Looking for a single Z1 setup with accessories (kegs etc), plus the PicoFerm.

Best regards,
- Ross

Hi, I know this is an old thread but if there is any chance it is still available I am interested in the Z2 package.

Hi @mer112, 

Sorry for the long delay in responding (this got buried in spam for some reason).  Yes, this is still available.  I'm also willing to mail it.
