Enjoy making hard cider effortlessly with Alchema.


If you haven’t found the best cider for your palette, why not make your own? Order the home-smart Alchema Craft Cider Brewer system and turn fresh fruit into hard cider or mead in just two weeks. Get limitless cider flavors customized for your taste. The process is simple; Choose a recipe on the app, add ingredients like fruit, sugar, water and a yeast packet and wait for the app to alert you it’s ready. Alchema eliminates the hassles and monitors the home brew for you.


Alchema’s built-in weight sensor on the app allows you to view the ingredients and how much of them you’ve added. Unlike other home brewing methods, Alchema uses a medical UV-C LED light that is food safe, an air pressure sensor and an auto-release valve for safety. There’s even a custom alcohol level calculation available in the app. The LED light and sensors monitor the critical fermentation process, notifying you when your custom brew is complete. When your batch is ready, the pitcher’s lid filters the leftover fruit residuals, making it an easy process.


You can choose a cider recipe from Alchema’s online community or create your own, crafting your brew’s sweetness and alcohol content with the app. Alechema, available fall 2017, is free to download and compatible with both iOS and Android. If you’re looking to try something new, the Alchema app can also be used to produce mead and wine.


Pre-order the Alchema now for $499.99. Shipping begins in spring 2018 to the United States, Canada and Taiwan.
