Home Brew Perfection For Everyone!, August 3, 2017

By Coastal Guy (Santa Cruz, CA United States) –

This review is from: Pico Pro Craft Beer Brewing Appliance for Homebrewing – Brew Your Favorite Craft Beers with Pre-Made PicoPaks (Kitchen)

I am originally from Germany and I have always loved good beer. Over the years, I have looked at some home brewing options, but it always seemed to be too complicated or too time consuming. Not anymore! The Pico Pro allows me to make great tasting, professional grade beer in a home environment.

What sets the Pico Pro appliance apart? For starters, it delivers everything you need. But, it doesn’t stop there. It also adds some “pro” components. For example, it includes a transfer hose that allows you to transfer the beer from your fermentation keg to your serving keg. Furthermore, it includes a gas powered party tap that keeps your beer carbonated and fresh!

How about the brewing process? It is dead simple. Add a Pico Pack of your choice (you can find a lot of different breweries on their web page including some fairly well known ones like Rogue or Bad Jimmy), make some adjustments to suit your personal taste (increase/decrease bitterness and alcohol content), add water and press the button to start the brew process. In about two hours your brewing process completes and you are ready to start the fermentation process by adding some yeast (included with the Pico Pack) once you have cooled down the wort. For the fermentation process you can decide to use slow or fast fermentation (it decreases the fermentation time to about 4-5 days with minimum impact on flavor).

Just a few days later, you are ready to transfer your beer from the fermentation keg to the serving keg using the gas powered transfer hose. Once done, you can put some pressure on the keg using the included party keg.

The last part is the most difficult one: You have to wait until the beer is nice and cold (I would recommend to wait about 20 hours).

OK. I gotta go now. A nice, cold homemade brew is waiting on me! 🙂

I have been using it since I received it with excellent results. It has become routine to brew, July 25, 2017

In the order to give full disclosure, I was sent the PicoBrew Pro by the PicoBrew company in order to give this review. I am however going to be completely honest in my review of the PicoBrew Pro.
I was part of the initial Kickstarter for the PicoBrew Pico. I have been using it since I received it with excellent results. It has become routine to brew, ferment, rack my beer using the Pico system and then force carbonating my beer using the original system.
I received my Pico Pro in the mail and two days later, due to surgery, I was able to brew another batch. This time it was Dead Guy Ale. Now, the brewing method is exactly the same. You will brew and ferment your beer the exact same way. Nothing has changed in that. What changes is the method of racking and carbonating (Though with carbonation you now have three choices.)
First, the racking. You can still do it the old way but you could also use the new CO2 regulator provided with the Pico Pro. With this method, you are using the CO2 to rack your beer. There is another difference in the Pro method. You are not racking to the “normal” keg that was provided with the original. You are given a second “fermentation” keg to rack your beer into. Both kegs come with the same red and gray pressure release valves so you can use either keg for either job so there is no worrying about which one you grabbed, there is no difference. Following the directions, you will hook up the CO2 regulator and the provided racking tube and then use the CO2 to force the beer into the new keg. Now, I had one small issue with this and it is simply a lesson learned. When the directions say to stop as soon as you see air…….STOP as SOON as you see air, otherwise you may get a little bit of the sediment into your fresh keg. Once done, you unhook, cleanup and move on to carbonating.
Second, carbonation. You still have the original two methods, sugar or force carbonation. Force carbonation is a little different only in that you need to use the new CO2 regulator, otherwise no change. In order to get the full experience, I did neither of these methods. I used the new carbonate as you serve method. Following instructions, I hooked up the CO2 regulator and the serving tube put it to the proper pressure and poured my beer. I set the pressure at 12 and the carbonation was great. A small word of advice on this though….the pressure will be up a bit when serving. Keep the head of the spout in the glass that first serve. I had no issues pouring the beer out and enjoying a good glass.
Overall impressions for the Pico Pro. I like it. I like racking my beer to the second keg and then serving it out with CO2 versus force carbonating. The only real fault I had with the original Pico was the keg. Don’t get me wrong, I like my Pico but I have to say that they definitely improved things with the Pro. The CO2 might cost a bit more because it is a far larger cartridge, but I was able to transfer and serve my beer with the same cartridge, and there may be enough for a second transfer but I might have to report on that later.

Lazy brewing is the best brewing. LOVE my Pico!, July 25, 2017

This review is from: Pico Pro Craft Beer Brewing Appliance for Homebrewing – Brew Your Favorite Craft Beers with Pre-Made PicoPaks (Kitchen)

I’ve been brewing for over 2 decades and I LOVE my Pico. LOVE it. I have a 20G HERMS system and really the only difference in the process between my Pico and my traditional homebrewing system is that the Pico takes all of the drudgery out of brewing. And yes, the beer is absolutely fantastic. It is every bit as good as what I make on my larger system. With my Pico I can be brewing my next 5L keg of something great in minutes. Add to that the ability to brew some PicoPaks from some great breweries that I’ve never had a chance to try and I’m sold. I have no excuses to buy beer commercially if I don’t want to. On top of that I can make some really delicious Lager’s without regard to cooling since I can throw the the 1.75G Pico Keg into just about any fridge or use the included Fast Fermentation Adapter to ferment at room temp. I moved to 5L mini-kegs many years ago before I moved to a full-on kegging system so I love the idea of cranking out a bunch of 5L kegs for entertaining or bringing to the cabin. I love the idea that I will be able to submit my recipes to be made into PicoPaks and buy a couple to try out. Most of all it just looks like fun and at the end of the day that’s what brewing is all about for me. The Pico is just too much fun to pass up.
