We’re making long days and progressing rapidly through our engineering test stages in our basement. We’re extremely proud to share a set of cool bits and pieces
Nowadays, our test engineer Domagoj brews twice a day
Brewed over 50 sessions in the last month
So far, crafted 25 fruity pale morning sessions and 25 white hoppy afternoon sessions
Optimized the brewing and fermentation process to perfect brew conditions
Used our new brew application to fully control the process
Eliminated all bugs in the hardware and software and close to a stable working system
We’re getting close to final assembly of the next 3 beta machines
We’re stoked about our new revolutionary vessel so you can ferment and tap your beers just from same keg you’ve used while brewing beer. We've been spending a lot of time on testing the automatic fermentation process and our vessels are live 24 hour 7 days a week.
Each day, two fermentation vessels are fired up and connected to the cloud via WiFi
We’ve a built an app (internal purposes at the moment) to keep track of each vessel and we are able to optimize the process from our home.

In upcoming 2 weeks, we'll kick-off mass manufacturing and our co-founder, Bart together with the engineering team will oversee the transition between the design and manufacturing stages of the project.

That can be derived from the many publications about beer, the wider range of supermarkets in the area of special beers and the extensive beer cards in the hospitality industry. Also on Social Media is seeing an increase in people interested in beer. Read more here
