Brewie’s smartphone-controlled system makes homemade beer easier

We’ve seen connected gadgets for homebrewing (and serving) beer before, and now there’s another gadget looking to do the heavy lifting for you. This is Brewie: a self-contained brewhouse that will have your next batch started in minutes. For the novice beer maker, pre-portioned kits and an RFID card sorts all the settings and measurements — all you have to do is toss in the ingredients, scan the recipe card and hit start. Of course, the machine also allows for more advanced tweaking, serving up 23 separate parameters (water levels, boiling temps, hop additions, etc.) for further fine-tuning. Once you’ve dialed in that Double IPA, Brewie saves the settings to produce the same results for the next batch. Looking for something new? There’s 200 recipes programmed already, should that need arise.
