The cicerone in this video is top notch. He gives an expert review of a doppel bock.

I would totally buy one if I had a spare $900. Way more flexible than the Pico. The keg seams nice with the built in cooling, and one could always jump to a standard small keg vs buying a spare from minibrew.

Not even comparable to the Pico.  Did you mean Zymatic?

I mean the little guy with the prefilled packs and no method of filling with your own stock of hops and grains. That to me is the biggest issue with the Pico. Built in temp control is also way rad.

Yeah, that's the Pico.  Perfectly understandable why it wouldn't be for you, but a lot of others like it for exactly that reason.  And actually, there is no a "Freestyle" adaptor to allow you to do that as I understand.

That's cool. I've seen that they offer build your own packs, but I think that's prefilled. Again, temp control fermenter = game change for the small format brewing systems.
