The $80 stainless steel steins are a bit pricy too.  I wonder how many real paying customers this site has?

Probably more than you'd think.  They've been around for many years selling expensive toys to people with too much money.

Someone who previously lived in my house is on that mailing list. I get the catalog all the time. kind of fun to look through. I tried to talk my wife into letting me get the $40,000 1 person orka submarine but she said no  ::)

looks like a single tier brew stand to me. you still have to mill the grain, mix it into the mash water and decide all your variables. That being said 45k is ridonkulous

It's nothing more than Sharper Image but for douchebags. For $45,000 you could start your own brewery on a small scale and with used equipment.

I agree.

Does it keep the fermenter chilled?

There is NO used brewing equipment market.
Just letting you know that.

Haha, one of my favorite parts of Beerfest was when the guy introduced his sons, Hammacher and Schlemmer.

Come to England and you will find your statement wrong.
