It’s official, folks. We’ve just entered a new level of hipster (but one we waltzed into gladly)… Making beer at home! We've got an awesome Black Friday deal for FHM readers via Amazon on an amazing at-home beer-brewing kit - the only one you'll ever need! Gotta warn you, though, it’s highly addictive!
Traditionally, to make your own beer you’d need around 15 items of equipment ranging from a fermenter with a lid and a bottling bucket, to a hydrometer and crystal thermometer, as well as the ingredients of course… but not anymore! PicoBrew, a Seattle-based kick-starter backed brewing company, has made beer-making at home easy-peasy, with their at-home beer brewing kit which allows you to make over 180 different types of beers in the comfort of your own home, and the best part? They have a whopping 27% off deal on Black Friday!
Get it here: Amazon, $399.00 (down from $549.00!)
This awesome at-home beer brewing kit allows you to brew 5 liters at a time of your favorite craft beer in just 2 hours! The fermenting and carbonating process takes 10-14 days to complete and after that, you’ll have thirteen 12oz bottles ready for you and your friends to chug back!
The beer is made using the pre-packaged Pico Pak kits containing all-natural ingredients (grains and hops) from award-winning beers from over 180 small and large breweries around the world. You can even create a custom freestyle beer with your own recipe of grains, hops, and yeast and fine-tune the alcohol content and bitterness level to your liking. The appliance is easy to clean with its built-in steam cleaning and dishwasher-safe components.
Brothers Bill and Jim Mitchell created PicoBrew in 2010 with engineer Avi Geiger. The guys wanted to incorporate their background in science and engineering into the process of beer brewing on a small scale and that’s exactly what they did! We visited the PicoBrew headquarters in Seattle and had a couple of beers (approximate estimation) with them. These people really love their beer and know their stuff!
The PicoBrew PICO Model C Beer Brewing Appliance makes a great gift for the holidays… Hell, who are we kidding, we want it for ourselves. The only problem will be trying to get our friends to eventually leave…
