IntheKeg is a $10,000 monolithic machine that brews beer
This giant, $10,000 machine is called Inthekeg and it's meant to be a self contained and fully automatic microbrewery.
Here's how it works.
The company sends you these things, which are called smart kegs.
They're five gallons worth of beer but it's not actually beer yet, it's warked, which means they cooked it.
They added the hops and it's ready.
It's just missing that yeast to add the alcohol and add a little bit of carbonation.
You put one of those containers in here and you pop this little yeast container, which is seated very nicely right on the top of the smart keg.
Then the system controls the temperature for you so you get a nice clean fermentation.
Apparently it gets your beer ready to drink within seven days This can store up to 10 different beers and then when you're ready you tap the one you want you pull the handle and you have yourself a nice tall glass of beer they have a number of different recipes that they're offering right now from.
Reporters to IPA's to pale ales.
And they're continuing to expand as they bring this machine to market.
Company representatives promised me that the beer brewing is authentic.
So the work is created using the traditional brewing techniques.
And if you want to go one step further, they also offer these containers.
So you can add adjuncts like maybe you want to dry hop your beer or maybe you want to add a little pumpkin spice for something at Halloween.
Then, beneath the keg, you have carbon dioxide to help push the beer out and cleaning solution.
So this last little bit of line gets rinsed when you're switching from beer to beer.
Supposedly the system even cleans up after itself, which is pretty promising.
And they're comparing it to full on microbrewery setups.
And how much more cost effective is the nose?
Obviously this would be hard to fit on your kitchen counter.
We've seen countertop beer brewers like Pico brew and brewery that are more affordable and smaller.
But this is thinking bigger and it's aiming at businesses in places that want a full microbrewery experience.
So it doesn't sound like you can create your own recipes yet, which is kinda disappointing but you can express some of your creativity with those [UNKNOWN].
And all together, it looks like a big robust automated system which take a lot of a legwork out of actually brewing beer.
And I'm just curious about how it tastes.
So hopefully we get to test it out soon and satiate my curiosity so to speak.
