Smart mini beer brewing appliance is going to change the brewing game

Los Angeles, CA, 2016-Apr-03 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — The ArtBrew beer brewing control system – designed, developed and marketed by an international-based team comprised of the world’s top engineers and brewers – has been officially launched at Kickstarter as an “inspired innovation” that will “change the concept of beer brewing.”

As of this writing, ArtBrew’s Kickstarter campaign has already got full funded within two days of being activated. And it will arrive at 200% of target very soon.

Boasting a premium structure that keeps both brewing and fermentation in one chassis and which automates nearly the entire process, the ArtBrew is the world’s newest, smartest beer brewing appliance featuring a unique mobile app that provides users another way to control the machine beyond the button on the 400 x 240 pixels LCD screen, either nearby or remotely with a Wi-Fi connection. This also allows for status tracking and access to a massive database containing a plethora of recipes from across the world.

Through ArtBrew’s innovative app, users can customize their own recipes while taking advantage of the social networking platform to obtain and share recipes they may not have had previous access to.

“The ArtBrew solution is going to change the brewing game not only because of its ability to keep the brewing tank and fermentation tank in one common chassis – one that boasts excellent structural design – but also because it’s a formidable control system with a myriad of sensors to control and provide feedback on the different processes,” states an ArtBrew spokesperson.

“What’s more, in this day and age of worldwide social networking, the ArtBrew app provides users an alternative control method for the machine, coming fully loaded with a recipe library that contains hundreds of recipes collected from the world’s most famous breweries, access to brewing process tracking with a real time curve, market access to all ArtBrew products and accessories, user notification of machine status and much more. To say the ArtBrew product is a forward-thinking, easy-to-use brewing solution is something of an understatement.”

A six-liter MiniKeg can represent a serving keg that the user simply leaves inside the machine to access the beer, or can work as a fermentation keg which the user can store in a refrigerator for fermentation purposes. Further, ArtBrew recipes are sorted in various categories, providing the user an easy way of finding the desired recipes while allowing the search process to commence by keyword or name. Users can create their own recipes and can also change or modify the original ArtBrew recipes to create a new one, free to then use/brew them or share with the public.

Hays PureWater Launches $10,000 Campaign To Save Lives

WASHINGTON, IA, November 25, 2014 — /EPR FOOD AND BEVERAGE NEWS/ — 783 million people live each day without clean water and 3.4 million die annually from a lack of pure water. To combat these staggering statistics, Washington-based nonprofit, Hays PureWater, launched a crowd-funding campaign. The money raised will fund 30 Khlor Glen technology units to purify water for 150,000 individuals. The organization hopes to raise $10,000 by December 1st.

Hosted on crowd-funding platform IndieGoGo, the project offers nine sponsorship levels. Each level includes novelty “rewards” for donors, ranging from stickers to t-shirts to a trip to Haiti. The rewards are unique, innovative and hands on, giving donors a sense of ownership in the project. For just $2,500, an investor can travel to Haiti (all inclusive) to see the life changing benefits first hand.

The Khlor Glen is a simple unit that turns salt water into chlorine. The chlorine treats infected water, removing deadly impurities and toxins in just one hour. It’s solar powered and easily used in remote areas, where clean water is most needed. “It will also impact malaria zones as it can be used as a bug repellant and protect from disease,” says founder John Hays. “Even just using the chlorine produced by the unit as a sanitizer can cut down on so many infections that the natives in these areas don’t even know exist.”

In the last eight years, Hays PureWater distributed over 4,000 purifying units around the world, changing entire communities by implementing this system. It’s proven to work. Hays builds each system with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. Nothing is outsourced, ensuring the most effective product for the lowest cost. Now all they need is help from their community to change the lives of those in need once more.

See the crowd-funding campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hays-purewater-providing-clean-water-globally

ABOUT Hays PureWater
In 2006, after traveling around developing nations on missions trips, John Hays began to create a low cost, portable solution for water purification. John, who worked with municipal water works for over 30 years, put his experience to use and developed the Khlor Gen system. Through the years, the design and look has been changed and improved, but the mission has stayed the same. The organization exists to provide people with clean water, reaching out to them through word and deed. Eight years and 4,000 units later, that mission continues full steam ahead.

California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety

California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety Invents Oven Mitt That Allows Dexterity and Promotes Safety

Santa Clarita, CA, September 17, 2014, Nearly 350,000 people annually are victims of scalding or burns from accidents that occur while cooking, either on the grill or in the kitchen. Most involve saucepans or tea kettles. Many could be eliminated by using a proper padding device on the hands when touching pans that have been heated. Many hot pads just aren’t made for high temperatures or kitchen dexterity when cooking. This can create more safety issues and actually create harm where they were supposed to bring assurance. One California man, Marcelo Garcia, has created a different kind of oven mitt built for safety and dexterity and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring this kitchen must have to the cooking masses that work well for anyone working in the kitchen, from beginner to Iron Chef.

Ulta-Mitt, as it is called, is a 3-Finger mitt constructed from neoprene that is waterproof and heat resistant making it great for indoor or outdoor use. The 3-Finger design allows for more dexterity than an ordinary oven mitt, offering both style and function with users able to have the ability to grab a lid from a hot pan, pick up a hot coffee cup from the microwave or work with small gadgets required while cooking in the kitchen. The neoprene material is also non-slip for a better grip.

This must have kitchen item also comes with a matching neoprene hot pad, which can double as a jar opener for those hard to open lids.

Perks for sponsors include sets of the gloves at manufacturer’s discounts and ahead of their proposed scheduled appearance in stores appearance and for some lucky investors, a complete Healthy eating wooden handle wok cooking set. For those that can’t give, the inventor hopes they will share this story to make the campaign viral through social media.

Laundry 365 Expand to Supply Warewasher’s Of A Fagor Design

Laundry 365 were set up to supply all sorts of commercial laundry equipment by a group of dedicated service people with years of experience in the trade with the added advantage that the service element was supplied 365 days a year. The company has been very successful in its approach and have realised that they have years of experience supplying not only the commercial laundry business but also the service industry as a whole, where that service industry supplies services to people in bulk. To this end Laundry 365 now supply commercial warewashers, which can clean bulk loads of crockery and glasses efficiently and with a high quality finish.

Laundry 365 is pleased to promote the Fagor range of warewashers and in particular the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher which is a pass-through warewasher meaning that the crockery or glasses are placed into a basket ready for washing. The baskets are then placed in the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher at bench height and are removed at bench height when finished. This means that there is no bending and lifting other than a straight transfer of the baskets and their loaded contents into the warewasher. This reduces any lifting problems that are caused by under counter warewashers and it also speeds up the process. Laundry 365 notes that the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher will efficiently clean some 1,200 dishes per hour ready for re-use. This reduces the amount of crockery and or glasses that are required for the commercial operation of the unit and returns those used back into operation in a very short time. This is ideal for bulk crockery or glass usage operations such as large restaurants, canteens, schools and hospitals and also cruise ship operations as well as large industrial type food processors.

The Fagor AD12BBT warewasher is a very simple piece of equipment to use being limited to just three working programmes, which are quite sufficient for virtually any normal operation. The typical working programmes take just 90 seconds or 180 seconds, which takes care of both the fast speed operation for the normal items and a slower more determined cycle which deals with the more difficult cleaning problems. The water temperature is typically 60 degrees C with a rinse cycle temperature of 90 degrees C, which will leave the dishes ready to dry quickly and efficiently. The wares cleaned are ready for putting away into the storage cupboards or can be returned straight into the system for instant reuse if that is required.

Laundry 365 is pleased to note that the unit is made of stainless steel and that all Fagor units come with a great reputation of strength and reliability from many years extensive usage in the industry. The Fagor AD12BBT warewasher has low running costs and is a real workhorse in the kitchen or factory and will delight the user. Laundry 365 will be delighted to advise anybody on the best piece of equipment for their own operation as this comes as part and parcel of the sale.

Thames Valley Catering Are Looking After The Dishes

Thames Valley Catering Equipment is able to supply a vast range of catering equipment to all parts of the trade from the restaurant to the large hospital and company kitchen but they also try to seriously look after the smaller user as well. With this in mind Thames Valley Catering is pleased to promote the smaller range of Sammic commercial dishwashers aimed at the smaller cafes and restaurants and other smaller catering establishments. The smaller units sometimes feel a little left out as the large companies seem to have all the best equipment but Thames Valley Catering is able to offer some excellent Sammic dishwashers to satisfy even the smallest requirement.

The company realises that any dishwasher is fairly costly and for the smaller unit that can be very important but the Sammic range is very good in quality and excellent in price. The Sammic SL-23 front loading dishwasher is a very good example of the type of equipment available having a 400 mm x 400 mm square basket, which will turn round a complete load in 180 seconds. This speed of operation will bring savings on crockery purchased and will give an excellent finished product. There are other savings to be made in water usage as the Sammic front loading dishwasher uses an optimal water flow system to reduce usage to a minimum. Sammic have fitted a detergent dosing system for speed of usage and there is an automatic rinse aid built into the dishwasher to ensure a high class finish.

Thames Valley Catering Equipment has a great deal of faith in these units, as they will bring serious savings to the business. The first saving is obviously in operator costs, as the speed of this unit will reduce the dishwashing time to around 20% of the hand washing systems. Secondly there are savings in crockery stocks and also in water and detergent usages. The dishwasher from Sammic will fit in well in a small kitchen as it requires little working space that is often at a premium in the smaller establishments and yet it has a high workload potential for such an establishment.

The Sammic SL-23 front loading machines are also ideal for larger concerns that need an extra machine either as a spare for the disaster day that the larger machines are broken or out of action for major cleaning of the present unit or as a separate unit for certain goods for example glasses or other special delicate products. The units are flexible and the space requirements are small and are ideal as a “Get of jail” card.

Thames Valley Catering Equipment would be delighted to answer any queries or give advice on the best and most appropriate Sammic dishwashers, there are years of experience available in the company and any question posed will almost certainly have been posed before. Sammic dishwashers have been around for some time and the quality and technology is excellent for the conditions they have to work in and the work they have to do and Thames Valley Catering Equipment is pleased to recommend their usage.
