Gotta be the worst idea ever! Maybe not... but if I started this way, I would have given up on brewing good beer a long time ago!

That's funny! I woke up this morning actually thinking about using my coffee maker for testing different grain mixes. It would be cheaper than screwing up a whole batch and kinda fun experiment.

Ya, the actual coffee machine idea is not terrible (if you can maintain temps)- the rest, however, eh, not so much

Scary to think he was the brewmaster. I figured the coffee maker would be like using a self contained MLT and batch sparging. I think I'm going to give it a shot this week. I'll just have to use some dry yeast instead of wasting a smackpack. I'll use a growler for a carboy.

Anyone else want to try?

You may be on to something there. I'd like to test my pot with a therm to see if the temps are as the article says. It would be a good way to do some experiments where you change just one ingredient.

Exactly my thought. Testing different grain ratios, etc. Even down to which hops.

I'd put the grain in a bag rather than use a coffee filter, but the rest looks good.
