NitroBrew promises silky smooth drinks at homeThe $500 NitroBrew system is built to infuse any beverage with creamy, Guinness-style nitrogen bubbles.
[MUSIC] Hi guys. This is Brian Bennett for CNET appliances, and right now we're taking an up close look at the NitroBrew. So what is the NitroBrew? Especially it's a kit that is designed to convert any beverage that you have on hand, like a beer or even cold brewed coffee into something that you'd get out of a nitrous Something you'd find at your cafe or your local pub. You've got a kettle here which is where you put your beverages to be infused with nitrogen under pressure. This crazy contraption right here is an air compressor. What it does is compress air and pushes it to this charging block here, which has a little valve on the front, which will push compressed air in to the kettle. It will all pressurized there, and you shake the hell out of it really or Just shake it a whole lot. And essentially, you're gonna get this very bubbly and rich and creamy solution filled with little tiny bubbles. That's what lends it this very creamy, rich head and very, very nice. And silky smooth taste that you would say, get from a pint of Guinness or a cream ale at your local pub. The NitroBrew costs $500, that's a lot of money to drop in one place. It's also really quirky and hard to use. You have to know how to set this air compressor properly, and you don't always get field inside the kettle. You have to fiddle with it to kind of find the sweet spot. You know, if you do it wrong you could spray a whole bunch of your potential customers or people at home with the liquid you're trying ti pressurize. So that's something you don't want to do either. I also have to stress that making each nitro-brewed beverage definitely takes some elbow grease. You have to take this container and really shake it Cocktail just to mix all the nice gin and to compress all and into that liquid to get the desired effect that you're looking for, so maybe you'll burn a little more calories. But it's definitely a lot of work per drink. For more check out my full review at CNET.com. I'm Brian Bennett for CNET appliances
