SEATTLE, Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PicoBrew Inc., developer of the award-winning Zymatic® automatic all-grain beer-brewing appliance, today announced they have shipped their 200th unit. The company's production rates have steadily climbed following PicoBrew Inc.'s partnership with Seattle-based production company, TASC, in September 2014. The company also announced that they have now amassed more than 100 recipes in their online PicoBrew beer recipe library, for use exclusively with Zymatic®.
"At a time when more and more customers are getting their Zymatic® units delivered, it's excited to be able to bring them an unprecedented range of top-quality recipes to brew," said Bill Mitchell, CEO of PicoBrew Inc. "We are proud of Annie Johnson's award-winning recipes, and are pleased to be able to share them with the PicoBrewing world."
PicoBrew's recipe library provides the user the tools to develop a custom creation, and also includes pre-programmed taste-alike recipes for 20 out of 25 of Zymurgy Magazine's top beer picks for 2014.
Mark Munn of Vancouver, B.C., backer of PicoBrew's Kickstarter campaign, received his machine in August 2014. "We have brewed six recipes so far. The first three are ready to drink, and they are excellent. At two separate parties, friends asked me where they could buy the beer I brought."
"Frankly, the Zymatic is a feat of imagination and engineering. Every time I brew, I am amazed by all the details that were thought of and that it all works so flawlessly," said Munn.
Kickstarter backer Dirk Koenig of Shorewood, Minn. received his Zymatic® in early October.
"At the end of a Zymatic brew session, instead of being tired, sore and glad it's over like I was with my all-grain setup, I can't wait to get the supplies for the next batch," said Koenig. "Now that I've got my hands on it, I sincerely believe every backer who has patiently waited is going to be very, very pleased with the final product."
PicoBrew is currently in the process of shipping units to their Kickstarter backers followed next by the fulfillment of pre-orders. Zymatic® units are available through the end of the year at special pre-order pricing exclusively from PicoBrew.com.
