    Well, that's another 4 minutes and 54 seconds of my life I won't see again!

    1 week to brew 1 (US gallon), 1 dispenser, 1 waste of money.

    No boil and you need "steam hops" whatever they are.

    There was a thread about this a couple of weeks ago. Seems to polarise opinion. Personally I think it's utterly dreadful and I really can't see the point.

    Agreed. I’m usually fairly relaxed about the completely automatic machines like the PecoBrew etc but this seems pointless. No boil so you need to splash out for steam hops, and it makes tiny volumes.

    Hi!
    Takes all the fun out of brewing - how I laughed as mash liquor squirted into my face while disconnecting a hose.

    It says it makes craft beer, so no doubt anyone who buys one of these will throw in so much vanilla, coffee, cocoa nibs, coconut, mango juice etc etc that whatever it tastes like, best place for it will be straight down the drain.

    Blimey, you'd think I was biased...

    I stopped watching when he said - making a comparable beer to commercial craft beer takes countless hours of research and years of practice.

    I wouldn't buy one even if it was the best all in one as i couldn't bear seeing that name on the front every time i passed it.
