It can’t quite turn water into wine, but the newest house party must-have can turn almost any fruit into hard cider, wine, or mead with minimal effort. When the Alchema was released on Kickstarter, it quickly skyrocketed past its initial funding goal… and it isn’t hard to see why. Combining the fun and popular aspects of creating craft alcoholic beverages at home with the ease and convenience of smart technology is a winning ticket.
We think you’re absolutely going to want your very own Alchema for hosting parties at your home. Here are just a few reasons you’ll fall in love with this device.
1. Make hard cider, wine, or mead at home.
The Alchema allows you to make hard cider, wine, or mead by following simple instructions and fermenting ingredients in a custom home brewing device. The type of alcohol you want to create impacts the amount of time the fermentation process takes, anywhere from less than a week to create mead to 16 or more weeks to make your own wine. However long the process takes, the Alchema takes the guesswork out by providing you with information on your creation throughout the creation process.
2. Mix it up with a variety of recipes.
One of the coolest things about the Alchema is that it doesn’t leave you entirely to your own devices when it comes to recipe options. The creators of this home brewing device went the extra mile when they came up with its associated smartphone application. The app is filled with recipes for different beverages (anything from ginger peach hard cider to sparkling apple cinnamon cider) that will keep you busy for months to come.
3. Smart technology for safety & convenience.
One of the dangers many DIY home brewers run the risk of is making a timing or food safety mistake that can turn what would have been yummy drinks into dangerous concoctions (you definitely don’t want to make anyone sick with your homemade cocktails!) The Alchema has brew time down to a science, and can be easily tracked via the smartphone app, ensuring that your ciders are fermented to perfection. It also utilizes medical-grade food safety technology to make sure the creation process is top notch!
4. Share your creations easily on social media.
What’s the point of creating your own craft brews if you can’t brag about it on social media? We’re (mostly) joking, but you probably do want to show off your booze-making skills to friends. Alchema’s app also makes this simple, with sharing features that provide your followers with specific details about your creations, including how long they took to create, their alcohol content, and facts about the taste of the final product. A great way to connect with fellow home brewers, or just to get friends excited about their drink options at your upcoming party!
The Alchema is a great invention that brings artisan crafting and smart technology together, and would be a fun addition to your kitchen. Plus, you’ll have the best tasting drinks available to share with your friends no matter what season or holiday you are celebrating. You can pre-order the Alchema for $429.00 on their website today. Cheers!
