    I had my first one of these after getting back from vacation two weeks ago and it was OK. The
    bourbon flavor was fairly strong and masked most of the vanilla. I had another last night and
    the bourbon ...

    Isn't that all the more reason people shouldn't be super-upset about this machine's existence?
    If clean beer that matches the intended style is all about fermentation, then this machine is
    just a prel...

    My sediments exactly. I tasted a couple there and they were clean nominal representations of
    the styles. Good luck to them.No offence, but that descriptor is far more indicative of the
    fermentation si...

    When are the previous posters, whom were staunchly against this product, repost? Sent from my
    iPhone using Home BrewWhat's the point of this question?

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll pull another sample tonight and see what it says. It is about 5
    degrees warmer upstairs, plus I had to put pressure on the BB when I picked it up and put it
    down.Hopefull...

    Is offgassing the same as fermenting? I'm still getting bubbles every 30 seconds or so right
    now. It was hardly bubbling at all before I lugged it upstairs. Is it possible I put some yeast
    back in sus...

    Thanks. It was down to less than 1 bubble per minute last night, so I'm hoping to bottle
    tonight when I get home. The plan is to add some vanilla extract to the bucket if the vanilla
    flavor isn't quit...

    I was down earlier checking on the beer and it has started bubbling again and there were
    scattered bubbles on the top. I counted about 5 bubbles a minute. Is that to be expected?It
    could still be ferm...

    Hey Johnsnownw,For fermentation, I currently have my corney's stashed in a closet in the house.
    My next step is investing in a front loading freezer to better define my temperatures.I've
    cooled the wa...

    I was lucky enough to get one of the first 5 preproduction units and I thought I would share my
    experience with the Picobrew so far.First, let me preface that I have a 15 month old daughter
    so I haven...
