How does it work? Per Pico Brew’s site below is the process of creating your own home brew using the Pico Pro.

When Pico-brewing they recommend starting with distilled water. Each PicoPak contains unique water amendments; various minerals that build up the water you brew with to exactly match the water profiles used by the breweries that created PicoPaks.

PicoPaks contain fresh grains that have been malted, roasted and cracked so they are primed to release the special sugars that waters at precise temperatures can unlock. This first stage of brewing is called mashing, and the exact times and temperatures that grains are soaked determines the content of the beer “wort” produced. Control and precision are the keys here to producing the fluids that when boiled, then cooled and fermented become beer.

Adding hops into the boil at different stages lends different characteristics to the resulting beer, from bitterness derived from alpha acids to more flavors and aromas derived from the hop oils. The PicoBrewing process with up to 4 unique hop additions accommodates a very broad range of beer recipe styles.

After the beer wort has been fully infused with hop flavors and aromas the solution is cooled it’s time to add the Yeast. Yeast is “pitched” into the beer wort and begins to go to work on the sugars, converting them into alcohol and CO2. Different yeasts also impart their own unique flavors to the beer. Fermentation typically takes 4-7 days, depending on the beer and the yeast.

Forcing the right amount of carbonation into your beer finishes it off, allows the beer to be crisp and refreshing, enhancing bitterness and mouth-feel, and carrying the fresh hop and malt aromas to your nose. Pico Pro comes with a precision CO2 regulator and cartridges that allow you to finish your beer perfectly.
