The 'Alchema' cider brewer takes only two weeks to make craft cider or mead and can even make wine if the user is willing to wait 16 weeks.
The device simplifies the process of brewing with just three simple steps. The first step is to choose a recipe from the 'Alchema' app, add the necessary ingredients and then add one of the yeast packets that comes with the machine. The cider takes about 1-2 weeks to ferment and the app notifies the user when the process is complete. The cider brewer offers a variety of additional features including a weight sensor, the ability to connect to wireless, UV-C LED sanitation and a fermentation monitor that monitors the "health" of the cider, mead or wine.
By making the process of creating cider and wine simple and hassle-free, Alchema has touched into a new market that could prove to be quite popular.
