Beer Machine


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

I just read some of the information on the beer machine web site.. (

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!

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?)

(we should all move to single fermentation, buying a packet of their ingredients?)
You, my Friend are the Brewmeister. (been there, done that)
Craft-Brewed Beer For Pennies (well yeah, you can buy a skyscraper for pennies - it just takes more of them)
Fight the Man. Fight the System. (Which man, what system, and how's this "fighting?")
If Your Man Likes Beer, He'll Love The Beer Machine (assuming you're gullible enough to buy one)
Live the Dream (Where did that come from?)
Just Brew! (OK)
You simply cannot get your beer any fresher- (or beer any greener)
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.

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.

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

brew. Leave a bit in the bottom. You do the math.
(or 0.375L per bottle, which is easier if using a calculator)

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.

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.
