Have you ever thought about brewing your own beer but have no idea where to start or think that the kit is just too cumbersome? Have you discovered just how much trouble your phone can get you into when there is beer around? Well not anymore. The Brewbot is the first automated brewing machine that you can control from your smartphone. If you are a brewing novice you are guided through the whole process by the Bot, ensuring that you develop the recipe you want and a consistent output keeps coming; an element of home brewing that can always be a troublesome. As with some of the best ideas we have come across, the BrewBot is currently being funded via Kickstart. So if you love the idea of home brewing with a modern twist, pledge some money and get in on the ground floor – which coincidentally is probably where your face will end up once you have tried all your samples.
