With the Brewer’s Mode, HOPii owners can brew their own wort and ferment it to perfection based on their own fermentation recipe.
San Jose, Calif. (PRWEB) October 04, 2017
With backers investing more than $325,000 so far in HOPii, which gives beer lovers everywhere the opportunity to enjoy their favorite craft beers from their own personal home brewery, HOPii, Inc. has announced it has unlocked the stretch goal so buyers can now access the ‘Brewer’s Mode’ feature as its successful crowdfunding campaign continues on Kickstarter.
“With the Brewer’s Mode, HOPii owners can brew their own wort and ferment it to perfection based on their own fermentation recipe,” said Jong-Wook Shin, CEO of HOPii, Inc., the company that developed HOPii. “This feature allows them to put their wort into the wort bottle, put it into HOPii, then select Brower's mode and input the parameters of their fermentation recipe via the display – including the fermentation temperature and when to dry hop. With their own wort and the recipe information, they can brew their own personal beer favorites to perfection.”
Shin said the Brewer’s Mode was one of the features HOPii backers have been inquiring about since the HOPii Campaign launched on Kickstarter a few weeks ago. The Brewer's Mode also enables users to brew their own in addition to buying beer kits to brew beers from other breweries, as well.
HOPii takes the beer juice called ‘wort’ that’s professionally made by the breweries themselves and allows beer drinkers to ferment these craft beers perfectly from their homes with a touch of a button. HOPii is the only device that uses authentic ingredients made by the breweries and focuses on perfecting the fermentation to provide the best and freshest tasting beer drinking experience.
Since the distribution process can be longer and include multiple transfers during transport, by the time beer drinkers get to taste the beer from their favorite brewer it is no longer as fresh and the flavor has been degraded dramatically. In this way, HOPii offers the freshest out-of-the-tank drinking experience ever.
Also, by connecting HOPii with its app, HOPii owners can receive beer recommendations, connect with other craft beer lovers on social media and purchase beer kits directly from the app for a complete and connected craft-beer experience. HOPii owners can also enjoy watching the actual brewing process – many, for the first time.
HOPii comes with a highly-controlled, light-free, oxygen-free preservation system. It also features a one-touch sanitizing system, which means home brewers don’t have to mess with taking the HOPii apart for cleaning.
With the purchase of HOPii, owners can order a Beer Kit from their favorite craft brewer that includes a three-liter (101.4 ounce) bottle with wort made authentically by the brewery and an ingredient pack with ingredients such as dry hops and flavors, along with a small coffee-stick pack of yeast. Depending on the beer, brewing is completed in about a week – and the beer made can be consumed from inside HOPii using the mini-bar tap or you can take the bottle out and brew another craft beer immediately right after while drinking the one that was just brewed.
HOPii ‘s patent-pending system is completely oxygen-free and bacteria-free, so the ingredients are always fresh and the taste of beer is consistent every time. Shin adds that the craft breweries also benefit because they can increase their return-on-investment – allowing them to have a brand new channel of distributing their craft beer and deliver it at its freshest taste, giving the beer drinker the exact experience intended by the brewer.
“Our product is the easiest-to-use home brewing device ever conceived, and you don’t have to know anything about brewing,” Shin said. “All you have to do is put in the pods and press a button. It’s like having your own professional brewery equipment shrunk into an amazingly beautiful countertop unit. Since the intelligence of brewing great beer is built into the unit, you don't have to worry about how to make your favorite craft beer – only enjoying its flavor in the freshest way possible.”
