Not sure if this is new or if I've just never heard of it before, but I saw this in a Skymall catalogue over the weekend.

I have not seen this one before. Was excited by the pressure relief valve but realize that it isn't really a spunding valve and you still need to use co2 cartridges. I'd rather have the beer self-carbonate.

Not a bad deal @$115 for the casual brewer or for the dorm room.

I would not mind reviewing one if I don't have to buy it.
