Pico is a home brewing machine that uses prepackaged ingredients
Since the craft beer craze swept the nation, home brewing is getting a better image – now it’s no longer just fusty old men with beards doing it, but fusty young men with far more fashionable beards. Pico could well tip it over into the mainstream.
It’s a home brewing machine that makes it super simple to make your own beer.
Best of all, you can also personalise each brew how you see fit. Want a more bitter taste, or fancy a higher alcohol level? You can adjust both on the Pico, so it’s exactly to your liking.

The actual brewing takes about two hours, then you leave it to ferment for about a week. Pipe it into a keg, and you’re reading to start pulling pints.
If the name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s made by the same people as the PicoBrew Zymatic, which hit Kickstarter back in 2013. This model is smaller and easier to use. It’s already passed its $200,000 funding goal, and will ship in March. You can pick one up for $499 (£326).
