The delicious brew's journey begins in the boil keg, where concentrated wort extract is heated by a propane burner for 90 minutes

Wait, all that for extract brewing? 90 minutes? Was somebody paying attention when they were interviewing the guy?

Beer has been brewed for thousands of years. Its not difficult, and definitely does not warrant that kind of equipment. You can make it with cheap plastic buckets and less than $100 worth of equipment.

That said, OOH SHINEY!

This thing seems to be just like a bread machine, but for beer. Do you need fancy or expensive equipment to make bread? Of course not. However it is appealing to just pour in your ingredients and walk away while a machine does all the work for you.

Or you could just go to a store and buy a loaf of bread. If you're going to cut away 90% of the process (the actual fun part) you might just as well save the money and buy the finished product. Having a machine do everything for you isn't really "baking" or "brewing." The fun part is learning and experimenting.

This looks like a cool toy, but I'd rather do it manually. YMMV

I wonder if my wife would notice if I set that up in our master bathroom?

If you want to buy the shiny that's okay. But don't pretend that you like to brew your own beer. You just bought a mini factory..

Do you realize how long it would take you to break even on $45,000 worth of beer? Weeks, at least!

If I had managed to work breasts into the headline, it would have been insta-green instead of having to wait until morning to find out,
