Looks like a really shiny, expensive way to lose control of your brew day if you ask me.

From what I Googled, it looks like the controller logic isn't accessible. That means your at the mercy of the original program.

I do quite a bit of controller programming at work, so maybe I'm the only guy that wants that much control. But if you're going to pony up the dough for a controller - shouldnt it control what and how you want it to?

harkening back to that rules of grammer and spelling thread, I hope these guys have better syntax and grammer when programming then when writing copy.

The BCS-460 has an open-ish API. This app is just a wrapper around that.
