Have You Tried Homemade Mead?
Homemade mead tastes somewhat similar to commercial champagne and ice-wine. Mead, also known as “honey wine”, is made by fermenting nutritious honey, water, and yeast. In human history, mead might have been the drink that made us experience intoxication for the first time!
Besides the classic honey wine, you can make wide variety of flavors and types of honey wine depending on added herbs, spices and fruits through ALCHEMA.
MORE THAN JUST MEAD
Whether it’s hard cider, fruit wine, sake, or beer. ALCHEMA produces the best results with ease. We have just the right recipe for any desired drink.

Just 10 minutes to get it going, then let the machine do everything, while you track it on your phone - pure genius. Great repeatable results too.
Good system. Works wonderfully and is simple to use. Better than those other brewing systems where you have to buy their special brew packs. With this, you can just make the mash for beer than add it to the device or you can stick with simple wine. The only thing that would be nice is if it had a temperature control instead of relying on the room temperature for fermentation. But that can remedied with a little creativity and some cheap heat pads. Also would be nice if it could work without internet access by using bluetooth through the app.
Very enjoyable hobby. I use the Simple Cider recipe and add various ingredient twists. Often I use loose tea or herbs in reusable brew bags. Also I’ve cleared out jams from my pantry. Starting can have WiFi connective issues that ALCHEMA has fantastic support. This winter I jacketed the unit to moderate operating temperatures
This is absolutely the best I've made in my Alchema! It's the perfect sweetness and flavor. My husband isn't a wine drinker, but he loves this! (Now I have to share lol) I highly recommend this! I'm ordering more.
Really wish it was a little bigger but love the possibilities. Making my second batch now.
This product is great and works exactly as promised. If you encounter any issues, fear not as their customer support is extremely good! So if Alchema is something you're interested in, have confidence they will deliver.
I am in love with my Alchema. I came with virtually no brewing experience and since receiving it a month ago I have craft 5 amazing batches of meads and ciders! Alchema makes it easy, and the fact that it monitors my batches and lets me know when they are done is amazing. The tool to create my own recipes is easy to understand - just needs to have some more ingredients added but otherwise I am 100% satisfied with Alchema!
My husband and I have loved having our Alchema. We have tried 4 different recipes since we received it in December and they have all been good (Learned we had to tweak the yeast a bit). We look forward to playing around with it more and discovering new recipes.
I had been watching and wanting one of the Alchema's for almost a year. We finally bought one and it is so great! The machine itself is easy to work and the support team is awesome. You have the ability to converse w/the creator of the machine and join a FaceBook group that shares information, recipes, tips and more. I highly recommend getting an Alchema if you enjoy brewing your own cider, mead and beer!
I love my Alchema machine. Making cider and mead is so easy. The machine guides you through the process. I'm so happy I purchased this. I highly recommend it!
I love cider. I love going to cider festivals and trying all of the different varieties I can find. This machine is one of the best purchases I have ever made. Not only do I get to make ciders in flavors I am excited to try, it is so much geeky fun to see it all happen. I had tried to make cider before and every batch I made came out horrible. Now, there is no more guess work. The app makes it easy to make suggested recipes or to try out your own. Even people who don’t like cider have said they LOVE the cider I have made with the machine.
I give the ALCHEMA the highest recommendation possible!
I bought this as a birthday gift for my girlfriend and she loves it!!! I was hoping it performed as advertised and it did very well, easy to set up and the first batch of cider was a huge hit! A+ product and A+ company with EXCELLENT customer support.
For years I purchased bottled cider from a large commercial company. They changed to cans, changed the flavors and changed the alcohol content. Nothing was consistent. Now I make my own cider to my own preferences and nothing could be more perfect. I highly recommmend the Alchema.
From day 1 watching the Alchema team put this wonderful piece of equipment together has been an awesome experience. The product itself does exactly as advertised and the support team behind it couldn't be better!
I am making custom flavored cider and it is unbelievably simple to do. The app takes you through every step, making it foolproof.
My friends are blown away by the amazing flavors I create in my ALCHEMA!
Does its job well. I backed the kickstarter and have done 3 containers with the machine. Normally ends up tasting harder than I hoped, significantly. Looking to fix this, I am hoping that in the winter with the colder weather and termperature inside I can get this to work better. I think it just guesses what the ABV should be based off of time and temperature, which is not altogether correct. Happy with the harder ciders just to mix with lemonade or something turns out great. I need to figure out a better way to separate yeast than recommended in app.
It does produce an amazing product! However dont think you will be a master of brewer right away. There is a learning curve - overcome by time and experience and also lots of batches.
That being said the facebook group is full of experts that are willing to help!I would buy this machine again and again.
Makes good cider, the recipes allow for a lot of customizing. For example, I follow the orange cider recipe when making passion fruit cider and it works every time. The device needs some improvement though, it's too reliant on everything working properly (and how often does that happen in the real world? ;-) but for an initial device it's pretty good. I'll definitely buy the Alchema mk2 if they come out with it in the future.
ALCHEMA is a ton of fun. I am a former home brewer of beer and the batch size on the ALCHEMA is perfect. You get to experiment with different flavor profiles without commitment to a massive mistake. And the absolute best part is that the ALCHEMA APP doesn’t let you make mistakes. Every batch is perfect!!! I have so much fun keeping (drinking) up with the fermentation that I will finish a batch just in time to start another. I ended up getting a second pitcher so it is just one after another.
The app is very intuitive. After running just two batches of the ALCHEMA provided recipes I confidently went out on my own. I prefer a dry cider so I will generally let the room temperature fermentation go longer than the app recommends. I have never had a problem with off fermentation.
I got my device on Kickstarter and am proud to be one of the backers to get this product made. You won’t regret the purchase. Enjoy your cider responsibly.
I really enjoy the experience of using the Alchema, about once a week my friends and I start a batch. We have made our own custom recipes and used the published ones. For the most part all of the ciders have been delicious. I had one issue with the app and one issue with device connectivity. Once notified the Alchema team worked quickly to fix the issues. I greatly appreciate the dedication they have to the product.
So far I love my Alchema, it has already made several batches of mead and a handful of ciders! I love trying all the new recipes, and really like that you can modify a recipe to your taste. I never thought cider/mead making could be done so quick; the turn around time is usually a week or two, including leaving time for it to settle in the fridge! Overall, would strongly recommend to anyone who enjoys mead and cider!
Wishes for future-
+ Removable scale for cleaning and zeroing function. My pitcher had a leak and now my scale is off by a few ounces; it's easy enough to work around, but it would be nice to clean and zero the scale.
+ A community learn/education section tab in the app where you can learn about the different yeasts and how they affect your recipe, Brix levels of different fruits and add-ins, and other applicable tips and tricks for home brewing enthusiasts. Also a few things on racking or additives to enhance clarity and flavor. These could be short YouTube videos (or video platform of choice), or just a text document with information on what to expect.
Brewing of ciders, meads,... you name it. The sky and recipes are only limited by your imagination. With the batches being a reasonable size, it won’t break the bank to restart one for a better experience - and that’s what is fun about the discovery process. Or you can use tried and true recipes from Alchema or other users. It’s a simple and safe device to use - love the UV sterilization (I use it to sterilize my holding containers).
Enjoy a truly revolutionary device.
