What does the Brewguide App Do?

The Brewguide app exclusively connects with the Pearl Model S and Pearl Model S 2022. One of Brewguide’s main features is the easy transfer of recipes from the app to the Pearl Model S series. The app also features some settings that are available to be changed through the app, including turning on/off modes, units, temperature (for recipes), auto-off timer, button sound, and your hello message. If you do not have a Pearl Model S or Pearl Model S 2022, you are still free to download the app and browse the database of both roaster and consumer recipes. Recipes can be accessed and shared through both links and generated QR codes.
