I just finished my first brew using the system, and I chose the Redwood IPA kit. I loved the fact that the machine manages both brew AND fermentation. I've done both old-school home brewing, as well as used a PicoBrew, but found the process management to be tradeoff between time, cost and space. I know brewers who love brewing process and the associated equipment more than they love drinking it, but I'm not built that way. I'm more interested in trying different recipes and letting a machine do what machines are good at, namely controlling tedious things around the clock! Also, I don't drink a ton of beer, and we have limited space, so the automation and small batch size of the BEERMKR is perfect for me. The brewing and fermentation process went off without a hitch. As with any new product, there are some wrinkles: the app is a bit buggy (that's being sorted out) and the BEERTAP is clunky and requires a lot of care to avoid pinched tubing. Tech support from the company is excellent, and also the (independent) Facebook group of BEERMKR users has been invaluable. Overall, a great effort from a small group of really dedicated folks. I'm already planning my first DIY batch!
I’m having a blast making my own beer. I’m a complete novice and if I can figure it out anybody can. The best part is that the beer tastes great!
My husband is just now trying to use it.
