Egyptians, Greeks and Romans continued to improve the production technique and the taste of the product, whereas in medieval time, the brew process becomes a prerogative of the monasteries and they started to use hop.
Today, thanks to the device Zymatic Machine of PicoBrew presented at CES 2015 of Las Vegas, everyone will be able to produce easily this drink at home. It is a real technological and digital revolution that will lead for sure to empowerments in the world of home brewing.
Zymatic Machine: how does it work?
PicoBrew has been able to create a device, completely automatic, Zymatic Machine, that allows to produce beer only pushing a button.

It can be as one of our traditional coffee machines.
Zymatic Machine is a kind of microwave oven able to contain up to a maximum of 4 kg of cereals that allow to produce a beer simply adding some ingredients and the Wi-Fi connection or Ethernet cable connected to the online platform of PicoBrew. The recipes are managed by a website where the users can exchange opinions and advice. At the same time, the newbie brew master can monitor how the brew activity is going on, via computer or the mobile app.
