  1. Hi BrewArtists, We wanted to share something really exciting with you. We have just launched our range of BrewArt Dry Hops and our Dry Hop Filter. Using Dry Hops is the ultimate way to craft beers bursting with big, hoppy flavours and aromas! Dry Hops can give your beer everything from piney and resinous flavours to citrus and tropical aromas that jump out of the glass, and they improve head retention! What you need to know: FIRMWARE UPDATE: We’ve upgraded BeerDroid firmware (P016) to include a Dry Hop function that when used on a Custom brew, or when you start a Dry Hopped BrewPrint will send you a push notification when it’s time to add your hops. You’ll have to update your firmware to use this function. BREWPRINTS: We’ve crafted a new range of Dry Hopped BrewPrints and upgraded some existing BrewPrints to include Dry Hops to get the best flavour profile for that beer! DRY HOP FILTER: We strongly recommend the use of the Dry Hop Filter to avoid blockages of kegging or bottling equipment from hop debris. Watch video on Dry Hops Dry Hop Filter Instructional Video So, what are you waiting for? Head to brewart.com and check out the range for yourself! Cheers, The BrewArt Team
  2. With my last brew I notice that beer had leaked into the viewing window of the droid. About 5mm of liquid which is showing a bit of mould as well. Has anyone experienced this or know how to fix this ? Thanks
  3. Hi all, my first completed brew using LME. I used 1/2 can but think for all future brews will use the whole can. Pale Ale dry hopped with 50g of Citra. A very nice drop but I think I over carbonated. I went away from the brewart carb drops because a box of grain sugar cubes are damn cheap. I used 3 per brewart PTE bottle. Think 2 is sufficient. It came out very good and finally the odd after taste is gone, just a whole lot of fizz on the tongue. Think I will rename this Prosecco Pale Ale 🤪 I will be bottling the RYE pale ale in a few days. Very interested in how this turns out. ~Alan
  4. Hi All, Winging it with an attempt at a RYE IPA. Briess RYE LMA and Safale-04 yeast. Will dry hop with small amount of Cascade 4 or 5 days in. At EOF 25g of Amarillo and Cascade each. Decided to use the whole can rather than 1/2. Added a little extra water, around 11l. 🤞 ~Alan
  5. Hi All, my beerdriod shows ambient temp of 32f that’s freezing in new money 🤪 Anyone seen the outside temp of Driod be so far off. It’ s 70f in the house right now. I have seen it differ a few degrees but nothing like this. sensor damaged? ~Alan
  6. Hi Guys, I’ve just started my first brew few days ago and I got the notification that it is has concluded the fermentation yesterday and it went directly to storage mode. However, I am unable to move the brew to kegging mode from the App nor the Droid. I went through the manuals and videos as well as the FAQs I couldn’t find anything I am doing wrong can anyone tell me what can I do next ? I know nothing is going to happen if the beer stays in storage mode for quite sometime but I am eager to start the secondary fermentation. Thank you.
  7. Hi All, Just to let you know there is a current discount on Keg refill kits, a $20 dollar saving, use promo code KEG20, ends 13th march Enjoy Stuart
  8. Who has had much success experimenting with using the 1.7kg tins? Do you halve the tin of go the whole hog? I have done the Mexican Cerveza with 250 grams of Enhancer 2. Came out alright. One of the blokes at the Brew store told me that it's the 1kg Enhancer that brings it up to the required ABV for the 23 litre systems. I am trying a Full can Coopers Draught with same amount of enhancer, it's been brewing for about 8 days now. With this one I tried breaking the Wort mix down in 2 litres warm water, then added 8 litres of cold. I would love to be able to just load up on Brewprints but my surname isn't Packer unfortunately. Who else is using cans as well as Brewpints?
  9. Hello All, Sorry if this topic is somewhere else but I couldn't find anything. So I purchased a can of Briess Pale Ale Liquid Malt Extract (LME). The can is 3.3 lbs but instructions do not really tell me how much to use for 10 liters in Beerdriod. I am think 2/3 of the can (2.2lbs) and top up to 10l with spring water. I have never used LME, I assume add to water and warm gently until melted/mixed. Let cool. Add to beerdriod, add yeast and start pale ale manually. Drop hop with what ever I feel like. Anyone have any thoughts? ~Alan
  10. Hi everyone. I have read the instruction manual and the posts on this forum about wifi issues. I feel I have followed the instructions step for step and cannot seem to connect the BrewDroid to the internet at all. I have pressed wifi manual setup, connected my phone wifi to the BrewDroid using the last 8 digits of the serial number. I have then gone onto the app and pressed NEXT which takes it to the connect network setup. No networks are appearing. Even leaving the app loading for 5mins nothing appears. I have reset the router, moved it closer to the router and still nothing is appearing. I have even followed the video guide on connecting it to the router the other way. Nothing. Is there an idiotproof way of connecting it ? I assumed it would be easy once the Droid connected to my phones wifi. It is about 5m from my router.
  11. Hi All I have been brewing relentlessly with the BeerDriod but really miss the freshness of my Pico Brew. The system now seems defunct which is a shame because it made excellent wort. I think combining the Pico to create the wort and the Driod to ferment might have been a fantastic solution. Once I have completed my next 3 brews (Lawn Mover, Ruby Porter and Highlands IPA) I will experiment with manually brewing in the Pico. I have seen on line others have managed to create the wort manually, hopefully I can also with my own grains and muslin bags 🙂 Anyone else have experience with the Pico and if they have managed to manually brew? ~Alan Added a Pic of Bruv & me brewing with the Pico System which was pretty much the last time..
  12. Hello All, Bottled my first brew, Coopers XPA. The first pour came out with a lot of sediment but much better towards the end. Took samples in the middle and towards the end of bottling. First pour tasted odd, last pour was better but still hard to tell how it finally end up. Smelled great. A lot darker than I expected but looking at other pictures seems close. I assume it will clear up some what during carbonation/secondary. I got a lot more beer than I expected but I think that is because of my experience with PicoBrew, that is only 5 liters and often some what less. App says beer is on shelf and will be ready in 2 weeks. I will probably take a sampling then but would think longer until it's at it's best. Any thoughts? So all in all a very nice experience. Bottling is so much easier but clean up a bit of a chore compared to the Pico's auto cleaning. Cheers
  13. Hello All, I am on my second brew and I am experiencing leakage like the first time. I now know to expect this and can periodically wipe clean 😀 But I do have a question in regards to the lid. The backside of the lid appears to be have a slight gap compared to the from which is very tight. Lid seems to have been connected corrected but now I feel it click into place rather that before it got progressively tighter. If I press down on the back part of the lid it moves a little, not much but a bit. Since it was the back it might have been like that before just wondering if the seating of the lid is never perfect and the rubber gasket is the important part to keep things air tight. Any thoughts. -Alan
  14. Just cracked open a hefeweizen I brewed on PicoBrew System in early March. Lovely head and great body. Not one of my favorite types of beer but came out nice. Will miss my pico but really hoping the Coopers XPA brewed in the Droid comes out this good. Just hit day 8 hoping it goes to kegging soon. I simply can’t wait to try in it. 🤪 ~Alan
  15. My first brew just finished fermentation, notified a few mins back. It then said preparing to keg but with in a min or so went to preparing to store! I need to add the dry hops before bottling. Shouldn’t it stay in kegging for at least 24 hours so I can bottle tomorrow. I did click a button about kegging and it seems to have gone back to preparing to keg. alan
  16. Hello, I am new to Beerdriod and started my first beer 2 days ago, Coopers XPA. Apart from a few issues with the iOS app and connecting to WiFi all went pretty smooth. Followed the sanitizing instructions to a tee. I used distilled water rather than tap for my brew since I have quite hard water in my area. I made sure to only fill to the 10L mark. Added the ingredients slowly and in the correct order. Lid is tight as possible. Started via the app and all ran very smooth until I check this morning. I had a lot of overflow from the lid. Please see attached pictures. The overflow was very sticky, so probably happened during the night and partially dried. I cleaned off and let the brew continue since there was no error. Thanks in advance for any advice. Alan
  17. Hey Guys finished our first beer brew but wondering if anyone’s made a decent cider using the beer droid? Recipes & instructions welcome please
  18. Hi all, After purchasing my beerdroid and brewprints in Nov '19, I'm yet to begin a brew as I had to complete some house reno's and then find the best location to place the beerdroid. In any case, stupidly I didn't open up my 3 brewprints and refrigerate the yeast sachets for 2-3 months, so whilst they're now in the fridge, I'm wondering if the yeast will have survived or if I should just go out and buy some more to ensure a good brew. Anyone have any experience, advice or thoughts on a way forward?
  19. Hey Guys , just want you opinion on sanitisers. I am still using droid tablets atm but the cost seems high . Should I lool at something like Starsan ?
  20. HI all, New to BrewArt and home brewing in general. I've got four brews done and am impatiently waiting for three of them to hit the 4-5 week mark (the first didn't make it past three). I've chewed through most of the threads on here and still have some questions. 1. Is there a limitation to how many ingredients the BeerDroid or 10 liters of water can handle? I saw someone here add two X5's to the Mountain Range IPA bringing the total up to nine. I actually tried and bottled this yesterday. It tasted great straight out of the droid. 2. On that note I want to try dry hopping but again what is the limit that 10 liters can absorb? Or what's a good starting point for an IPA? 3. Is there a list somewhere of what the elements do to effect ABV? I found IBU here and which hops are what. But when I start playing with the Brew Prints I don't want to make something stupid strong or close to non-alcoholic. 4. Finally, I've seen some mentions of the Facebook group. Like some of the others here I really don't want to get back into that shit show. Would there be any interest in creating a Slack channel? Could someone reading this pose that idea to the book of faces group?
  21. Welcome budding BrewArtist! If you are new to brewing with BrewArt we recommend that you checkout BrewArt 101 as your first point of call. Here you will gain access to in-depth instructional videos, FAQs and other helpful downloads. Cheers, The BrewArt Team
  22. G’day All, just thought I would put up a post to help those brewers out there finding a suitable cube for doing your all grain - no chill cubes. After struggling with finding a suitable 10l container I have found the Primus branded 10l HDPE jerry cans to be exceptional. The blue ones that you find at Bunnings are way too thin and warp out of shape when you have them filled with hot wort. I am currently doing 20 litre batches and splitting them between two cubes and it seems to be working out really well. The only thing that I have found is that you need to empty half the cube into the beer droid then put the lid back on the cube, shake the bejesus out of the cube and then pour the other half in to get enough oxygen into the wort to avoid fermentation lag when pitching dry yeast. Don’t worry too much about pouring from a height as the head room inside the droid while it’s OK there’s really not that much to play with. on another note there’s more than enough space in the bottom of the droid to hold the cold break so you won’t end up transferring that to your kegs or bottles - hope that this helps someone out looking for 10l containers.
  23. Ran into my first issue with the second hand kegs setup I have. The setup has the older style caps and black valve. I purchased new keg liners but do I need to buy the new keg caps, black valve and spear (aka the keg spear pack) to use these? If so how do you buy them as I can’t see them on the BrewArt shop site? Appreciate any assistance. Thanks Terry
  24. Hi all, im wondering if anyone else has had issues with the site glass on the front of the beer droid is leaking? Mine has leaked on its second brew and I’m wondering if this will effect the brew? And could it infect the next batch as unable to remove the window? thanks, steve.
  25. Hi, I’m setting up my beerdroid to wifi, I can only get to the second step as I can’t select my home network to move onto the next phase. Has anyone else had this issue? Or have any ideas of how I should go about this? Thanks!
