 Does anyone use the Beer Machine?  If so how do you like it?  I am thinking
about buying one and would like to know if it works ok and makes good beer.

Thanks

Re: Beer Machine


I just read some of the information on the beer machine web site..
(http://www.beermachine.com/files/choose-beer-making-kits.htm)

It sounds like hilarious propaganda! Its almost like it was written by the
writers of the simpsons or something... *** see below

I must admit I wouldnt mind trying a beer from one of these. back to Junk
Hunters Question has anyone tried it????

If Einstein had been a master brewer and had tried to conceive of the
perfect small batch brewing device.he might have come up with something
close to The Beer Machine 2000. Take The Beer Machine 1000 and then beef it
up, make it better and give it a fancy pressure gauge that allows you to
monitor and perfect your beer.  It is brewing magic. Everything you need to
easily and quickly brew beers as if you're a Trappist Monk or a beer loving
sorcerer. The Beer Machine 2000 - perfection is patented!

The write up looks like a script from a telemarketing campaign, but I
think it'd be a nice system if it didn't bother you not to use a
secondary.  You'd need at least two to maintain a supply (brew in
one, drink from the other) and that'd be getting pretty expensive by
then.  You wouldn't be able to condition in one really either, you'd
have to drink it pretty green.

Mainly it's the small-simple-keg aspect that impresses me, if I were
in the US of A and had cash to waste I might get one and brew in a
normal setup, transfering to the machine to dispense.

There are probably other things on the market that do that job better
anyway (does anyone know of such things avaliable in australia?)

I'd be curious to know about it too.  

Looks to me like the side seals are a weak point.  With proper
handling it might last.  Notice the seal is changed on the more
expensive model?  Suggests the cheap one doesn't work so well.

Try to get the least bit creative with a real recipe and chances are
the relief valve would plug and it would vent from the sides.

Too much hype.  I did see one at a "going out of business" sale.  
They wanted $20 for it.  Looked too cheaply made at $20 and a quick
calculation of cost versus benefit says that carboy's are the better
buy.  It would take two or three of the devices to keep me in beer.  

Save work?  Perhaps.  

Will someone who has bought one and will admit it respond?  Unlikely.

Re: Beer Machine


 I would like to see the Beer Machine make a better unit. instead of a pile
of plastic make from stainless steel.  I like there idea and the size is
right for me.  I don't need five gals. or more the 2.8 Gal. is fine.  When
it gets low I will  put it in bottles and start some more.  Its been in the
fridge two days and doing good.  I will let you know how good it is when its
done but now it taste good.
Happy Brewing
Mike

Re: Beer Machine


the joy of the beer machine seems to be, the lack of it.

the banter is reading like
HEY HAVE I GOT A DEAL FOR YOU.

it's a freaking cheap piece of plastic
and their beer kits are twice oveer priced.

a freind bought one of those prettyu plastic tamks.
invited me over to try his new brew
he almost thru it off the balcony.

making beer is not a big project, at the best of times.
and there are some great brew kits available.

a five gallon tank makes 5 dozen beer.
i think the beer machine makes 2.

really too much sugar to it. poor quality filling product.

the word about beer is experiment.

A five gallon batch does NOT make 5 dozen beers.  It will make about 4
dozen or two cases.

9L per 24 bottles (a carton/case where I come from), 23L for a standard
brew.  Leave a bit in the bottom.  You do the math.

(or 0.375L per bottle, which is easier if using a calculator)

Re: Beer Machine


soo sorry guys.
5 dozen in canada
in canada we have what is called the imperial gallon.

canucks even have a different way of measuring alcohol content
my Mountain Crest says classic pilsner 5percent alc./vol. 355 ml.
