    Default What will they come up with next!

    For lazy brewers, I guess.

    I love my PicoBrew. We've made over a dozen recipes, with an IPA slated for next week, plus a few sous vide sessions. It takes the tedium out of all-grain brewing, not to mention a complete elimination of boil over messes. The company has been very responsive to troubleshooting, and their recipes tasty.

    I'd probably never do an all-grain beer in a kettle; I don't have the time or inclination to watch water boil. But I'm happy as heck to try crafting my own recipe with the Pico.

    Wow. What a thing! I may have to get back into AG! When I can spare $2200 bucks that is. Still. It's pretty cool and when you tally up all the equipment needed for all grain and the hassle. Maybe for my 49th birthday?

    Yeah, it's pricey. Let's just say the other half likes brewing toys too. :-) He found it on Kickstarter; it was much lower then.

    Looks interesting. I brew extract with some specialty grains but I do not have the space or time to do all grain brewing - this automated system might be an option for me someday. I generally try to keep 5 beers on tap but lately I've reserved one of the taps for hydromels.

    I had gone to AG for a while, but switched back to "augmented extract brewing" like what you do. I usually started with a "light lager" base and added chocolate malt and things like that.
