LG HomeBrew is a craft beer making machine for the capsule age

Forget smartphones and televisions, LG has revealed a new capsule-based craft beer machine called LG HomeBrew.

The device essentially allows users to make their very own craft beers using capsule based ingredients, in a similar vein to capsule coffee makers.

“With a set of single-use capsules — which contain malt, yeast, hop oil and flavoring — and the press of a button, users can relax as LG HomeBrew automates the whole procedure from fermentation, carbonation and aging to serving and cleaning,” explained the company in a press release.

The device uses a “optimized fermentation algorithm” which “intelligently controls the fermenting process”, making the beer produced by HomeBrew high quality.

“The clever capsule system also removes all the cleaning-related frustrations associated with traditional home-brewing method,” LG reveals.

According to LG, HomeBrew takes about two weeks to brew five litres of beer.

There are five flavour options available at present:

  • Hoppy American IPA
  • Golden American Pale Ale
  • Full-bodied English Stout
  • Zesty Belgian-style Witbier
  • Dry Czech Pilsner

LG HomeBrew will be unveiled at CES 2019.
