In my opinion, the whole idea of home brewing is my love of the process. Why the f!ck would I want a machine to let me know when my beer was done? Its to fancy- good thing its in Europe! Get in there, feel the heat, F8ck it up, brew it again, oh- sh!t its good. Repeat.
This "hobby" is becoming too trendy. The days of laughtring in a bucket must be over. Frowny face!
