'The Device' - All-In-One Beer Making Machine

Illustration for article titled 'The Device' - All-In-One Beer Making Machine

'The Device' is the world's first all-in-one beer making machine. Just add the right ingredients, press the right buttons, twist the right valves and after two weeks you'll have gallons of the amber nectar. I make use of another invention that provides me with beer, with even less hassle - it's called a bar. Check out a video of it in action after the jump.

The wonderful contraption has been built by PopSci staff photographer, John Carnett. Eventually he hopes to add another section that will make the raw ingredients from grain. Perhaps after this he will start growing his own crops - now that would be real home-brewing. [Pop Sci]



Wow. These guys invented a way to spend thousands of dollars in order to brew like beginners (using extract only). Call me...well...amused.

They definitely win the homebrewing version of the Walter Mitty award, but then again, most homebrewers aren't terribly interested in emptying their wallets building a contraption of extraordinarily limited utility.
