UNPACKING

Never set up Brewie alone. Both the weight and size may lead to injuries. Otherwise, follow standard precautions for installing large household appliances.

  1. Place the box on the ground, then carefully open the box with a box cutter. Do not place or store the box upside down!
  2. Remove the top part of the cardboard box by pulling it upwards.
  3. Remove the top part of the styrofoam by pulling it upwards.
  4. Reach down into the foam and place your hands underneath Brewie on each side, and carefully lift it up.
  5. Place Brewie on a hard, horizontal surface for the weight sensor to operate normally.
  6. Open the lids and unpack the parts inside.

MEET YOUR BREWIE

Boiling tank
This tank contains hot water. In case of manual water intake and manual cleans you have to pour water here.

Boiling tank lid
Keep the lid closed. Open the boiling tank’s lid during brewing at your own risk.

Mashing tank
Place the false bottom and the mashing bag here. This tank contains hot water.

Mashing tank lid
On the right side of the machine. Keep the lid closed unless manual action is required. Open the boiling tank’s lid during brewing only if Brewie instructs you to manually add ingredients. Open the mashing tank’s lid at any other time at your own risk.

False bottom
The false bottom holds the mashing bag above the bottom of the mashing tank to minimize heat risks. Failing to put in the false bottom might damage your machine! After brewing the false bottom can be hot, so handle it with care!

Hop tank
The hop cages fit into the hop tanks snugly. Do not force the hop cages. Never place anything into the hop tanks without enclosing it in a hop cage.

Main switch
Flip the main switch (on the backside of the machine) to turn Brewie into standby mode or to turn it off.

Power button
Found on the right side of the machine. Press and hold to turn Brewie on. The power button lights up and and beeps when Brewie is ready to operate. Press and hold the button if the machine is inactive to turn it off.

Drain button
Found on the left side of the machine. Press and hold to drain or restart draining. Short press to pause draining. The drain button lights up when Brewie starts draining.

Water inlet
Attach the high pressure water hose to this inlet to connect Brewie to the household water system. ¾ inch

Cooling water outlet
Attach the low pressure water hose to this inlet to connect Brewie to the household sewage system. ½ inch

Wort outlet/Cleaning water outlet
Attach the low pressure water hose to this inlet to safely drain the wort into the fermentation container, or to drain cleaning water. ½ inch

USB socket
The most secure way to connect your machine to the internet is an ethernet USB transformer.

ASSEMBLING THE BREWIE

  1. Check if the gaskets are well-placed in the plugs.
  2. Attach the high pressure water hose to Brewie’s water inlet and to your household water system. Do not forget to make sure the household water valve is closed. Use extension hoses if necessary.
  3. Attach the low pressure hoses to the wort/ cleaning and cooling water outlets respectively. Ensure that the drained liquid can be captured securely (wort) or transported away (cooling water, cleaning water).
  4. Settle Brewie into the position you wish to use it in and make sure all hoses are still securely attached and unbroken.
  5. Open the household water valve. Check the water pressure. Do not forget to close the water valve after brewing is finished!
  6. Plug the power cable into the power socket. Make sure that the socket is rated a minimum of 10A at 230V or 15A at 120V. Use a grounded socket.
