Introducing Alchema, a $499 countertop fermentation device that allows you to turn your leftover fruit into alcoholic beverages like mead, cider and wine. Basically, it’s a more sophisticated and expensive alternative to putting fruit and crumbled bread in a plastic bag and letting it ferment behind the toilet.
Seriously though, I’m sure that the beverages you can produce with the Alchema are vastly better tasting than pruno. It’s also a lot easier than more traditional methods with its automated process, Wi-Fi connectivity and accompanying app.
Interested parties can get the Alchema for $429 during the pre-order period with shipping slated for fall 2017.
