Yes and no for me. I brewed with it 3 times, then went to extract kits, then partial grain, and now do all grain, so figured I would never use it again. But then came Hard Cider, all my fermenters were taken up, so I made a 2 1/2 gallon batch of cider and put it in my Mr Beer. Then i realized last week I still have 5 lbs of 2-row sitting around, so I decided to do a experimental batch with that and spices, and did a BIAB that was about 2 3/4 gallons, and i put that in my Mr Beer 4 days ago.
So while I don't hardly use it, it has come useful for me a few times still
