Abstract

The picoBrew project determined the marketable requirements of a small-scale automated beer brewing system. Techniques from industrial robotics were applied to the basic home brew cycle, resulting in a prototype design which could be easily controlled as well as manufactured. The prototype design focused on repeatability and ease of cleaning, two of the major requirements as determined from market studies. The prototype was capable of independently performing the heating, ingredient handling, and cooling cycles required to make beer.
