5 minutes is all it takes to start a batch of beer. Place your ingredients into the brewing chamber, insert the brew pouch, and fill the system with water. Press start on the app, and BEERMKR takes care of the rest.
Start a batch before you leave the house for the day, and by the time you get home, it's time to pitch the yeast. And don't worry, BEERMKR will send you a push notification so you know just when it's your turn to do something, like pitch yeast, add dry hops, or remove the beer for serving.
Over the next week BEERMKR ferments the beer. Its CO2 monitoring system tracks yeast activity and adjusts temperature automatically to match the profile for the yeast strain you are using. When your batch is done, BEERMKR will send you a notification to move your beer to the dispenser.
Every BEERMKR comes with a draft dispenser. When your beer is complete, remove the bag of finished beer from your BEERMKR and place it in the dispenser. Plug in the included CO2 cartridge and place the dispenser in your fridge. Your beer will be carbonated and ready to drink in 24 hours!
When you're ready for your next brew, browse the pre-made MKRKIT recipes on the BeerMKR app and have them shipped directly to you. At just $1 per 12 oz beer, you'll be drinking quality craft beer for a fraction of craft beer store prices.
BEERMKR's pre-built MKRKITs are made up of the same grains, hops, and yeast as your favorite commercial craft beers, but we don't stop there. Thanks to the open system, you can add any ingredients you like—raspberries or sage from your garden, hops from your neighbor's yard, and even ingredients from your local homebrew shop.
Unlike other home craft beer making systems, the BEERMKR is a truly innovative craft beer brewing machine that not only simplifies the way in which craft beer can be made but also makes sure you’ve got the taste and flavor of good old home craft beers on the spot.

10 out of 10. Would recommend to a friend. BEERMKR, out of this world.

BEERMKR might be the perfect automatic beer brewer. Finally a beer bot that checks all of the right boxes.

Traditional home brewing requires kettles, fermenters, mash tuns, pumps, sanitizers, cleaners, tubes, capers, kegs or bottles. The list goes on and on.
BeerMKR combines all of these into one convenient package so you don't have equipment cluttering your personal space.
During the brewing phase, every component in the system reaches pasteurization temperatures. This means your entire brew is sanitized for the life of the beer, from brewing to fermentation to serving. When finished, throw the brew chamber and yeast collection bin into your dishwasher, and grab a new brew pouch to get BEERMKR ready for the next batch.
This means you will never have to sanitize a single piece of equipment. Ever.
BEERMKR's CO2 monitoring system tracks yeast activity and beer progression by measuring CO2. When yeast eat 1 sugar molecule, they produce a fixed amount of alcohol, CO2, and other flavor compounds. Therefore, if you know how much CO2 has been produced, you know how much alcohol is in the beer. BEERMKR is continually measuring CO2 production and reporting back to the BEERMKR app. This gives you a real time view into the alcohol content and maturity of your beer.
BEERMKR is the only small form factor brewer available that manages both brewing and fermentation. No other brewers manage yeast and fermentation. Yeast make beer, and without yeast, beer would just be non-alcoholic hoppy sugar water. For yeast to create the plethora of flavors and alcohol that they do, they must be at a very specific temperature.
There are hundreds of strains of yeast, each with their own unique flavor profile that is only achievable within a strict temperature range for each stage of the fermentation process. If yeast are too warm, too cool, or under too much pressure, they will create undesirable flavors (i.e., classic "homebrew in the closet" flavors), or very little flavor at all (resulting in a bland beer).
When you start a recipe in the BEERMKR app, the optimal temperature profile is loaded automatically. With BEERMKR's CO2 monitoring system, it can detect when yeast move from stage to stage, and it will adjust the temperature automatically to keep the yeast in their optimal flavor-producing state.
With custom recipes, you have the ability to select which profile you wish to use, or even change the profile itself.
Beer in one week? I call B.S. For traditional homebrewing setups, you're right—a week is not nearly enough time to produce good beer. However, 6 to 9 days from grain to glass is normal for commercial craft breweries. The difference is due to commercial craft breweries monitoring the fermentation progress closely and adjusting temperature multiple times to maximize yeast activity and minimize time spent in the brewery's fermenters.
BEERMKR uses the same yeast monitoring techniques and temperature management schedules as a commercial brewery. This produces flawless fermentations in a surprisingly short time frame.
BEERMKR is the only automated brewing system to allow no restrictions in hop additions. You can add as may varieties as you choose, for whatever hop schedule you choose. All of the hops are added at once to the brewing chamber and the system heats up to pasteurization, starch conversion, and whirlpool temperatures (150 F / 65 C). This temperature extracts all of the oils out of the hops as well as their other flavor compounds. Because BEERMKR uses Steam Hops in addition to raw hops, the of hop flavor, aroma, and bitterness combinations are endless.
BEERMKR is the only brewer under $1500 that allows you to add your own ingredients directly to the machine.
