Frequently Asked Questions about MiniBrew

Everything you must know around brewing beer!

  • When will the MiniBrew be available?

    MiniBrew is currently in manufacturing stage and we expect the first machines to be available in Q1 2018. The capacity for the first producing batch is limited.

    First, we're going to launch the MiniBrew in Europe. After the launch, we'll spread out our wings to other continents like America, Asia and so on.

  • How long does it take before I can drink my beer?

    The brewing stage takes about 3.5 hours followed by fermentation. Fermentation can take from a week up to several months depending on the recipe. 

  • Does each keg come with its own tap?

    A tap is included with every machine.

  • What's in the box?

    Each system comes with a base station including a keg and a tap system

  • How much noise does the MiniBrew make?

    The sound produced by MiniBrew during the brewing process is comparable to a washing machine. During fermentation it is comparable to a computer fan that goes on once in a while. 

  • Do you smell the brewing process?

    We’ve minimized the smell to ensure your kitchen won't smell like the time you did an in-house BBQ.

  • How do I clean my MiniBrew?

    Removable parts are dishwasher proof and the internal circuitry is cleaned with a semi-automatic cleaning system. All you need to do is a cleaning tab and hit start in the app.

  • What's the difference between MiniBrew and other brewing machines?

    We are aware there are competitors who are all attempting to address both complexity and time. The other devices out there claim to reduce both, but all fail to do so without significantly compromising the user experience or quality of beer.

    MiniBrew is the first truly all-in-one system. One thing most competitors don't show, is the huge amount of equipment needed to brew with their device. And the fact you need to manually transfer your beer into additionally serving kegs.

    MiniBrew is truly revolutionary and so easy in use, which has not been addressed in the (home) brewing market.

  • Can I choose my own design?

    Not at the moment, although if you want a gold version we’re open to chat.

  • How does the 30 days money back guarantee work?

    Every purchase of a MiniBrew is covered with a 30 days money back guarantee. Should you ever decide you want to step back from your purchase, simply send us a message and we'll get back to you.

  • Tapping / How long will the beer stay fresh?

    Since the keg protects the beer from any risk of contamination / oxidation the beer will stay fresh up to 6 months.

  • Will the MiniBrew work without Internet?

    The MiniBrew needs a stable Wifi connection to get configurated for brewing. Nevertheless, if the internet connection gets lost during a brewsession, the machine will continune to follow the set up brewing process without any problems.

  • How can I get ingredient packs?

    Ingredient Packs will be available right from within the app and delivered to your doorstep. It's that easy. 

  • How much will an Ingredient Pack cost?

    The price of an Ingredient Pack will depend on the recipe and contents, but expect it to be in Europe between €15 and €20 ex shipping. You can find the exact prices in our store soon.

  • What ingredients can I use with my MiniBrew?

    MiniBrew is an all grain brewing system with 6 individual hop and flavouring containers. For the launch you are able to use only the ready-to-brew Ingredient Packs from MiniBrew. In the future you can add you own creations.

  • How many liters of beer can I brew with one ingredient pack?

    The MiniBrew produces around 5 liters with one ingredient pack. The total final amount always depends on the beer style but will slighty vary.

  • Is the mobile app free?

    The mobile app and an account at MiniBrew are free. You don’t even have to purchase a MiniBrew to use the app. Of course you’ll need one if your want to brew all those delicious beers with the app.

  • Will I be able to brew my own recipes?

    Besides brewing from Ingredients packs you will be able to create your own beer recipes and brew with your own ingredients. However, this feature will not be available directly at launch, but is expected to come live soon.

  • How do I control my MiniBrew?

    The MiniBrew needs a Wi-Fi connection to the internet to receive instructions and report its status. The app and the MiniBrew communicate through the internet, so it doesn’t matter if you're right next to the machine or at the office, you’ll always be able to monitor your brew.
