Brew Boss$1099-$112538-75L, 10G-20G
Grain Father$79930L, 8G
Brewie$159920L, 5G

There's a kickstarter going on right now for The Grainfather.  They are based out of New Zealand and looking to break into the US market.  Some just posted the link on our Homebrew Club page the other day.

A friend just bought a Grainfather.  I'll be interested to see it.  For him, one of the attractions was the still.

I'll never forget the time in college when I got kicked out of a head shop for saying "Hey, this is a pretty cool head shop". They gave me the whole "tobacco use only" schpiel and sent me on my way. And all I wanted was a Jimi Hendrix poster, anyways...
