If I had that much to spend on my brewery, I think it would go towards other equipment.

Agreed.  Very expensive.  I do think it's cool that someone came up with that though.  Not sure I believe all their claims in the video.

It looks like making bread with a bread machine.

Where's the mash tun and kettle?

This (http://morebeer.com/view_product/11859/104232/Braumeister_-_20L) seems a lot more useful at ~1/3 the cost, if you want a pre-built brewery.  For the remaining $3000+, you can put together a nice fermentation fridge, a kegerator, and a decent HDTV.

Looks pretty slick but does it produce great beer.

Does anyone own one, or know of anyone who has one of these fancy gadgets?

Pricey indeed$$$

5K and you still need to use 2 pots and a stove if you want to steep grains and use actual hops.  These people should be ashamed of themselves.

Looks like a fancy Mr. Beer kit. From the video it looks like no boil pre-hopped extract brewing. Easy yes, if you REALLY want to make your own beer but want it to be as easy as buying beer.

Not for home brewers (hobbyist) but a cool play toy for the rich. After I buy my first Tesla, Will be sure to pick up one of those.

Actually, reading a little more its really a personal fermenting and dispensing system. It doesn't heat the wort at all. It says you can steep grains in a pot on the stove and add that, it also recommends using a teapot to steap hops for late hop additions. So ... temperature controlled fermentation and dispensing system? Sure. I'll take three.

Of course it's expensive, they've gotta pay for that fancy website, video, and theme music.
I just made a kit beer like that and felt like I was just making a can of condensed soup.
The "exact" temperature controlled fermentation is nice, but I would think I could pay a lot less to come up with something that would do about the same job.
Really, that just seems like something a CEO would have in his office to impress people and be able to say, "I'm a homebrewer"

Admittedly, it does look nice.  ;)

Not sure I understood the pressure control. Does that thing Carbonate while fermenting by keeping the whole thing under pressure? Kinda coolish

Krikeys, the t-shirt is $43!  With that I can almost get a sack of grain.
