Supreme Built Quality
MiniBrew has been designed & engineered in the Netherlands and comes with 2 years warranty. We also stock essential replacement parts as needed.
Pays for itself in 2 years
At around 0.90ct per special craft-beer (0,3cl) and around 5 beers per week, a MiniBrew pays for itself in less than 2 years time.
Due to the high demand, we have sold out our production batches more quickly than anticipated. It is already possible to order the new and improved production batches, but since production is still catching up and COVID didn’t make this easier, it can take a couple of weeks extra than our usual delivery period. Please refer to the delivery estimate on the specific product page itself.
We ship to countries within the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and offer full services, such as verified certification by TUV, 7 days support and repair service.
We ship to few countries outside the EU such as Australia, Thailand, India, Indonesia, UAE, South Korea, Vietnam, USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore with limited service (eu support hours, self repair option and local import tax required)
All orders are processed after the stated delivery date on the website. Orders are shipped or delivered on weekends, but not on holidays. After adding the order to your cart shipping cost can be calculated. Packages are mainly shipped by PostNL or DHL, unless otherwise stated.
If you are interested in placing a larger order (50+ machines) or want to become a distributor for a country not on the list yet, we might be able to accommodate a wider range of countries. Please contact us directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to see how we can best assist you.
If we’d be ever forced to discontinue the business, we’d make sure you could keep using your MiniBrew. The software that we own and maintain would be made open-source and free to everyone so that all our users can continue to brew. It would then be up to the community to finance the software, as is the case with all open-source software.
The MiniBrew is a smart brewing machine, meaning it gets better over time with our over-the-air-updates and you can control and monitor the entire brewing process via our smart brewing software. You can operate the machine through our free iOS App Android (private Beta) and through the Pro Membership software on any internet browser. With WiFi you can easily connect the Base Station and Smart Keg to the MiniBrew App and/or Pro-environment. To start brewing beer you require a WiFi signal and a water connection. If the WiFi is unstable or you lose connection during brewing, you’re still able to keep brewing beer because of the Machine’s built in memory.
It’s best to start out using one of our Brew Packs, which are craft beer recipes we tweaked together with premium breweries and made available for you in a handy package so it’s a breeze to get your (first) brews up and running. You can order our high quality Brew Packs via our webshop or directly inside our iOS App.
Once you get going, the Pro Membership paid-subscription is available on all machines and allows you to create your own recipes and get access to our active brewing community with over 10.000 craft beer recipes. Becoming a master brewer has never been easier. Click here for more information or purchasing a Pro Membership Subscription.

You can start with tweaking some of our existing Brew Packs further to your liking or you can select one of the countless available community recipes and make it your own. You can also create and customise your complete own recipes, adding hops, yeast and spices to create your ultimate craft beer. You can then share your recipes and exchange tips in our active brewing Pro Member community, further honing your craftsmanship and learning & inspiring each other.Here is a quick overview of suggestions that exist to prevent technical issues such as blockages that could ruin your brew altogether. The Pro Membership software will also help you through this recipe creation process.When grinding your own malt, we recommend the standard dry basis coarse grind (DBCG) which can be achieved with a gap setting of between 1 mm and 0.7 mm.The total malt bill per mash must be between 1200g-2300g (including adjuncts and fermentables).Dry hopping can be done at any time during fermentation. Up to 60g can be added throughout fermentation. An extra trub removal needs to be performed for every 10g. Bear in mind that each trub removal can reduce the total volume of your beer by 10-150ml, depending on the amount of matter inside.Additional yeasts can be added during secondary fermentation as well as primary.The water used for brewing must not contain Chlorine or Antibiotics. The water used for brewing never comes in contact with the water that comes through the inlet at the back of the machine. As such, if you wish to treat the water you add into the Smart Keg and the pre-mix (moisturizing the malt) to match a certain water profile, you can.
The MiniBrew Smart Keg is designed to control the entire fermentation process and to then store and serve your beer at the perfect drinking temperature. The well insulated Smart Keg allows for an outside/ambient temperature range between 5 and 25 deg celsius. With the double easy carrying grips you can carry up to 5L of beer and bring the bar to you.
With multiple Smart Kegs, you can ferment, store and serve different recipes in parallel using the same base! Get a Minibrew Craft Pro or MiniBrew Craft Pro+ or simply order an additional Smart Keg for this.
We always recommend serving directly from your Smart Keg, this ensures you have the freshest beer possible. However, members of our active Pro Membership community have seen good results bottling their beer using beer guns with sanitizer.
The beauty of craft beer is that every single one is unique! The MiniBrew has been designed as a smart brewing system to make brewing high quality craft beer at home accessible to anyone. The time it takes to brew strongly depends on the beer you’re brewing, with the shorters recipes taking around 9,5 days and some of the longer recipes taking up to 25 days.
Brew Day takes around 4-6 hours hours, but you’ll only be actively brewing for about 40 mins. Our iOS app and/or Pro Membership let’s you know when you need to get moving again, so you are able to do other things in parallel. The fermentation takes a minimum of 9,5 days where here and there some input will be required by the brewer (e.g. adding hops and removing the trub container), but no more than around 20 mins in total. Make sure to add your fresh Craft-beer Tasting Day to your calendar and invite your friends to enjoy your craftsmanship!
Each Smart Keg will give you approximately 5 Liters of beer. This is the same amount for Brew Packs and your own recipes. The typically recommended glass for each beer style differs in size. As an example, you would be able to serve about 16-17 glasses of 300 ml.
The price of a beer depends on the price of ingredients. One glass of craft beer should cost you between €0.60 - €2.00.
