The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is underway in Las Vegas, and our PicoBrew team is there showing off our latest innovations in the craft beverage market. Eight years after blazing a trail in craft brewing appliances — first with the pro-level Zymatic™, then with the best-selling Pico line of consumer machines — we’re making our mark in commercial brewing and beyond with the new Z Series™.
The Z Series is the world’s first professional-grade, fully scalable brewing appliance for both commercial and at-home brewers, and we’re showing it to the world at CES 2019.
“Our new Z Series, and our incredibly popular PicoStill™, serve to highlight the growth and expanding focus of PicoBrew from just craft beer to virtually all beverages,” says Dr. Bill Mitchell, CEO of PicoBrew. “We’re now truly a total beverage appliance company, with the most extensive pipeline in the industry.”
Using the new Z Series, you can brew your favorite beers from commercial breweries and other homebrewers, or create your own custom recipes, just like you can with your other favorite Pico models. But the Z Series goes beyond craft beer. It’s your all-in-one, complete craft beverage appliance; in the same easy-to-use machine, you can create your own beer, cold brew coffee and kombucha. Brew anywhere from 1- to 10-gallon batches, and share your concoctions with family and friends or even customers.
“Z Series builds on PicoBrew’s pioneering Zymatic and Pico technology, and addresses the needs of professional and advanced homebrewers alike,” says Mitchell. “With a single appliance, restaurant and craft brewery owners can use their own loose grains and coffee to create custom batches precisely and efficiently, and scale up production as needed.”
For commercial craft beverage producers, Z Series runs brewing cycles with precise control over temperature, fluid flow and timing, and it features upgraded, pro-level components. For homebrewers, the Z Series also brews classic PicoPaks: pre-portioned packages of ingredients that make it easy to brew great beer from award-winning breweries around the world.
Ready to take your brewing game to the next level? Add our PicoStill™ distilling appliance to your brew system; it’s compatible with all PicoBrew machines, including the Pico C consumer line. It allows you to distill small batches of spirits safely and more precisely than ever before (where regulations allow), and to extract essential oils from hops, herbs, and spices — adding an exciting flavor infusion to all of your food and beverage creations.
