Making Progress

Thank you for believing in MiniBrew.


As supporter, you helped us create the first truly all-in-one compact brewing system. No additional equipment is needed to brew. Your support helped us introduce this product and experience faster than a small startup normally could.

Let’s talk about our development. We've been selected as a top contender for "Startup of the Year - YEAH :) It’s the last day to vote by liking our FB post or the official (Dutch)article. We need around 200 more votes to win this competition. Let’s do this.

The progress

Over the last month, the team has focused on hardware & software and MiniBrew Beta is really coming together. At the beginning of the month, we received our custom made double sided boiling and fermentation vessel with an inside cooler system. On top of the vessel we’ve mounted a new mash tun including our hop unit. Everything fits perfectly together.

What's next?

Testing and building more Beta’s. Our Brewmaster Ko accomplished a major breakthrough with our cooling system. He pulled it off to get the temperature from room temperature down to 5 degrees in 4 hours. This means you can ferment all beers in the world and keep it cool before you tap your beers.

Beta program

Product aside, we held “welcome” talks with almost of our beta backers. The experience around the beta customers ranges from 2 months to 30+ years!! From beer sommelier to micro breweries. MiniBrew Beta will be tested at home kitchens and local breweries. Our beta backers will test the hardware and the software, starting upcoming month.

Finally, send us an email including the names of beers you would love to brew. We are very curious what kind of beers you've in mind. Here is our suggestion, an English Bitter (so read hoppy) beer that's light in colour.

Beer and food always a good pairing

That’s it for now, back to testing and building machines.

Learning to brew beer is just like learning how to drive a car: you can start with automatic and go the easy way, or you can start with manual and drive any car you want. Brewing all grain as opposed to brewing with extracts is much more beneficial for learning and will allow ...
