Seattle-based manufacturer PicoBrew has announced the launch of its new Z Series line of brewing appliances, which is available immediately.
It is the firm’s first professional grade, all-grain brewing appliance line and is targeted at restaurants, bars, brewpubs and craft breweries.
The machines are capable of producing small batches of assorted drinks, including craft beers, cold brew coffee, kombucha and spirits.
Depending on which version of the product they choose, operators can produce anywhere between 2.5 and 10 gallons of beer at a time, with the process taking an estimated four hours, and between 4 and 16 gallons of cold brew coffee in just 90 minutes.
The company’s CEO, Dr Bill Mitchell, said: “At PicoBrew, we’re always striving toward giving our customers the most sophisticated brewing technology possible.
“With our Z Series appliances, the brewing possibilities are endless – if you can dream it, you can brew it.
“We already have hundreds of happy Z Series brewers out there who pre-ordered their appliances as soon as it was announced, and we’re thrilled to say today that the Z Series is officially available for all passionate brewers ready to step up their game.”
The machines take the form of state-of-the-art “brew computers,” containing more than 329 unique elements engineered by the PicoBrew team, including an ESP32 processor and a patented fluid flow manifold.
The line consists of three products, the Z1, Z2 and Z3 and range in price from $2,749.99 to $9,499.99.
