I guess if I had never brewed beer before reading that, it would be cool and I might just try it, but seriously I think it would just be easier the current way.

It goes to show that you shouldn't believe everything you read in a magazine. While the general principal is correct, the execution is horribly off.

I had to do it I. I didn't have any sugar around and I wanted my SG in the low 1.05's.

damn... you should have boiled it down more. I ended up doing a 90 minute boil and got it up to 1.062.

You're right. I was getting tired and thought - OK we've proved it could work (I was at1.042 if I remember correctly), now I'll just bump it up a bit to where I like it.

I see this idea going for sale on ebay as "Complete pilot brewing system"

I'm thinking this would be a great way to make wort for a yeast starter just the right amount of wort and a whole lot cheaper than using DME like I currently do.
