Thank you for purchasing a MiniBrew and joining us on this journey! We are happy to count you among us and we're really excited about creating the future of craft beer together! :)
If you have received your MiniBrew and you're wondering "ok, so what now?", don't worry! You will find all the answers on how to get started in the Quickstart guide booklet you received with your MiniBrew.
Once you have the base station unpacked, set it on a level surface, and connect it to power. Then go ahead and download the MiniBrew iOS app, which will guide you through the rest of the setup, including how to connect the machine to your wifi.
If you are one of our early backers, or you purchased the MiniBrew Craft Pro, you will also have access to our Brewery Portal. The portal enables you to create your own recipes, and it can be used with any browser on any computer, either in combination with our MiniBrew iOS app, or without the app altogether.
Whether you are using the app or the portal, you can add the MiniBrew base station to your profile, and start a new brew. Once you do that, you will be guided through everything with photos and videos. This includes every step of the way, like rinsing the base station and keg before brewing, preparing the ingredients and putting all the parts together, cleaning the machine after brewing, things you need to do during fermentation, and last but not least: tapping and enjoying your beer. You will also be able to monitor your brew to see how things are going, and how much time is remaining until the next action is needed from you. The app will notify you when you need to do something, and don't worry if you're not available right away. The MiniBrew will put things on hold for you, and you can take the next action whenever you are available again.
Of course, if you ever need help we are here for you! If you have any questions, please check the troubleshooting section of this Help Center, where you can use the search field to find answers. And if you need technical support or you are worried that your beer might be ruined, get in touch with us and we will help you out.
