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.

What hops should I grow? Looking for cheap honey?

Drinking:3726 rye saison, local sour cherry kriek, oud bruin, saison bottled with ECY34
Carbing: Ardennes BDSA, TYB saison brett blend, apricot golden sour, TYB Saison Blend II
Fermenting: an irresponsibly hop-bursted Conan DIPA
Aging: 3726 saison w/ brett x2 (dregs mix & Lochristi), witbier w/ brett, sour cherry mead, rye sour ECY20/ECY34 split, several other sours, acerglyn, and probably some stuff i've lost track of...

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).
