With less than one week until its Pico Kickstarter comes to an end, creator of the already popular craft beer appliance, PicoBrew, announced new backer perks: Pico Ltd Edition, Pico Brewvana, and a novel end-to-end integration package with a smart kegerator-fermentor.
The Pico is described as a much-needed appliance for the home craft beer enthusiast. It is a compact, fully automatic brewing appliance that brews five-liter mini kegs of fresh craft beer in about two hours. One key to Pico’s ease-of-use is the use of convenient pre-packaged ingredient modules called PicoPaks. The Pico is available for the price of $559 through the Kickstarter initiative.
Sharing details about the new perks, Dr. Bill Mitchell, co-Founder of PicoBrew, stated:
“We know our backers are looking for differentiation and uniqueness, which is why we introduced the all-black ‘Pico Ltd Edition’ model.”
The Pico Ltd Edition pre-order also comes with a bundled FreeStyle PicoPak. FreeStyle PicoPaks themselves are a new feature introduced by PicoBrew during their Kickstarter campaign. FreeStyle Paks are custom recipe + ingredient packages created by using PicoBrew’s unique graphical FreeStyle Pak Editor software.
The other model introduction PicoBrew rolled out is the Pico Brewvana. Brewvana is the first complete brewing-fermenting-dispensing all-in-one solution to fit in such a compact footprint, and the first ever to feature precision fermentation control, dispense temperature control and beer-remaining monitoring. Pico Brewvana includes a new Pico, a customized KegSmarts smart kegerator, 4 ball lock kegs + 4 PicoBrew Select PicoPaks, a stainless triple-tap tower with Perlick faucets, a triple regulator, 4 KegPlates and 2 KegWarmers.
Pico’s campaign is set to close on December 1st.
