    Are the containers for Pico C or a reserve of Pico Paks available anywhere? I have a brand new machine and only one picopak

      I wrote this before the company folded up. Basically, no.

      If you just acquired a machine, your best bet is A) To join the Picobrewers Facebook Group, B) Manual brew according to the company instructions, and/or C) Buy or fabricate a grain bin (such as the Pico-Free) that works like a PicoPak.

      The biggest problem with there being no Paks is that keeping the ingredients in their respective containers was required for true “automation”. Simulating that with a reusable container is how we’ve been doing it successfully so far. Manual brewing is a close second where you are using the device to maintain the desired temperatures, but you need to pause each cycle to swap out bags of ingredients.

      Please join us on the FB Group. There’s a ton of information there including setting up software to replace PicoBrew’s in preparation for when the company truly shuts down their server.
