Cider drinkers might be interested in a new desktop craft brewing system called ALCHEMA which has been created to provide an easy way to turn fruit into craft cider, in the comfort of your home.
The home-brew system allows users to create their own unique flavours, with the simplicity of making a pot of coffee, say its developers. Watch the promotional video below to see how the ALCHEMA brewing system functions and its brewing capabilities.
ALCHEMA enables you to homebrew your own unique flavor of hard craft cider. With the simplicity of making a pot of coffee, you can turn your favorite fruit into craft cider with limitless flavor options. We created Alchema to simplify homebrewing, starting with cider. Alchema brings the joy of craft cider to you and your loved ones. You pick the ingredients, and let Alchema take care of the rest!
With Alchema, you can create your own flavor of craft cider or mead within 2 weeks. You can also make wine with Alchema with your own resource of wine grapes and age it for longer. Fermentation is a natural process where yeast transforms sugar into alcohol. Alchema simplifies the homebrew hassle by helping you enjoy your own craft cider in just 3 easy steps.
1. Choose a recipe on the app: Browse through our online recipe database and gather the necessary ingredients, including fruit, sugar, and water.
2. Add ingredients – fruit, sugar, water: Each recipe indicates which kind and how much yeast to add. As you are adding each ingredient, Alchema will weigh the ingredients and let you know (through the app) when it’s enough.
3. Add a yeast packet: Yeast is essential for fermentation to take place. The recipe will tell you which yeast will work best for the kind of cider you’re making. For example, you need different yeast to make your cider still or bubbly. Buy additional yeast from the Alchema site or from local homebrew stores. Included in each 3-pack of yeast: 1 packet for sparkling cider, 1 for fruitier concoctions, and 1 for recipes with a stronger alcohol content.
That’s it! A batch of cider typically takes about 1-2 weeks to ferment, depending on the fruit and recipe. Alchema will notify you when it’s ready.
ALCHEMA is now available to back via Kickstarter with super early bird pledges starting from $299 and shipping expected to take place during July 2017. Jump over to the crowdfunding website via the link below for full specifications.
