these issues (along with old mishandled dry yeast) won't be solved by this contraption. it'll make wort for you, but it doesn't handle fermentation or sanitation. it's fantasy to think that you can push a button, walk away and return to great beer.

making wort really isn't all that hard.

I know absolutely nothing about this, so take this comment with a grain of salt... or... 1/2 a grain...

Just by reading this thread my take on it is this...

Think of making bread. You could do it with a bowl and a lot of hand kneading. Or you can use a bread machine. You are still in control of what you put in and all of that. It is more a Ron Popeil 'Set it and forget it' type thing.

Again, this is just from reading this thread. I could be way off (And probably am).
