Now, brew beer with your smartphone!

New York, Oct 6, 2013, (PTI) 21:01 IST
Want to brew your own beer, but know nothing about it? Help is at hand!
Researchers have developed a beer-brewing device that can be controlled and monitored by a smartphone.


The brewbot is already a hit, garnering about USD 100,000 from 195 backers on crowdfunding site Kickstarter.

Developed by Cargo, a team of designers and developers based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, BrewBot can be controlled and monitored with a smartphone.

The Brewbot is described as "an easy-to-use, controlled environment that is aesthetically pleasing, and frees up brewers to focus on the recipes.

You don't need to know anything about brewing," according to its Kickstarter page.

Brewmeisters can purchase ingredients for beer, place them in the Brewbot, send the appliance recipe and instructions via their smartphone, and the rest is taken care of by the machine.

After brewing a batch of beer, an automatic cleaning mode will sanitise the appliance, 'LiveScience' reported.

The device, which is about 4 feet high, uses stainless steel tanks and an open-source platform for programming.

When finished, Brewbot will work with a kegerator, a beer-dispensing device that keeps a keg full of beer chilled and tasty for months.

The Brewbot designers have already built a prototype, but are hoping to make the product commercially available.

The completed device is expected to cost USD 3,200.
