I have received my shipping numbers and items are in transit, you should have received notification by now. If not he may not have gotten them all inspected and shipped this past weekend. His garage was packed tight with them all this time around.
seems to be something wrong on the beercrafter web page. tried to create a sign in but then it will not accept my password to login, tried the reset password and I do not receive email to reset passwordIf you have been in the market for a specific Pico C/S/Pro recipe crafter look no further. I've said I had a working profile available for BrewCrafter, but since I haven't gotten traction getting that merged and released in the "official beta crafter" experience why not make it available in an "unofficial alpha/beta crafter.
Anyways I've done just that with a dev pipeline including my fixes and updates that were purposed to BrewCrafter at crafter.pilotbatchbrewing.com feel free to give this "alpha/beta preview" a spin. No clue when these new features (PicoFree / PicoPak recipe, newly fixed email integration and more coming) will get merged into the "official beta crafter" experience.
Thanks mate. Yeah major downside (IMO) is that BrewCrafter never had a basic prefilled in ingredient list with really the very basics (2 row, crystals, Vienna, etc). Nice hack to get around that you have there! Like it. If I get time maybe I'll build "shared" ingredients that default into each user's account. I understand that default isn't good enough given regional disparity in product (and seasonal differences in hop crops)
Just picked up a Pico Pro/S to play around with. Looks like I shouldn't expect the Pico Free to open for purchase again. Has anyone come up with another option or am I lookup at tedious manual brews?
Hi Trevor, just dusting off my original Pico from the kick start and fired up the server. I had given it up for junk. I'm late in the game by the looks of it. if you have any spares left over I would be interested in purchasing one.I also noticed the cart was open again for any extras
, not sure how long that will last this time around.
Cart just closed roughly 2 hours ago... there are a few extras so stay tuned to your emails over the coming week for the announcement to those that subscribed on pico-free.com for when that hits.
Trevor was just the messenger— the guy who was sourcing the kits is done but if you’re on Facebook you should join the picobrewers group (Facebook Groups) as the pico-free kits occasionally pop up for sale. Alternatively, other folks there have made their own grain and hops carrier solutions, so even without the pico-free, you’re not SOL.Hi Trevor, just dusting off my original Pico from the kick start and fired up the server.

Hi Texas-- so I've got a mixed bag of thoughts for you. In no particular order:So I have a second hand pico C and a Picostill. Don't care about the latter and would like to just sell the setup.
If I decided to wade into this mess... Is it worth it? I mean I do small batch all grain, plus I have a Beermkr and also do extract kits.
Is there a way to edit recipes and do automatically?
Agreed, I tried several filtration lids on my custom 6QT grain bin, and each failed to prevent grain from spilling over into the step filter. So I too now use a grain bag inside the bin, and finally acheived the goal of a fully automated hands off brew session, hurrah. The extra effort of cleaning out the bag is not much given the payoff. I'd still be open to finding a solution but not a big priority for me anymore.After tediously making a stainless steel grain bin and using SS perforated, I ended up with too much grain getting into the step filter and clogging. I ended up just putting a bag inside the grain bin. Problem solved. Knowing what I know now. I would not have build it the way I did. It only needs to be a bin (without lid) and a few holes in the bottom. The hops bin just needs to hold 4 different hops in the hops bags.
if you do try and make one don't over complicate it.
So I have decided that I would see about doing another run of Pico-Free Boxes. I have discussed with the manufacturer and it seems that I can get them to produce if can get enough orders. So PRIOR to pulling the trigger, I wanted to see how many people are still looking for Pico-Free boxes. IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED, please send an email to the [email protected] with the number of pico-free boxes that you would like to purchase in the SUBJECT line.
As you know the global logistics situation is a little slow right now. I cannot guarantee when they will arrive, but I would guess February, at which point I would ship them all out right away.
Thank you for your interest, and please ignore this message if you are no longer interested. Thanks.
