    Now this is a proper use of tech. Granted, it'll probably taste like vomit, but it's a start, and with refinement, you'll probably get a decent pint out of it. By then though, it'll be shoved away in a corner of the cupboard with only the breville toastie-maker for company.

    "hop oil and flavouring" says it all.

    Buy a bucket and the ingredients and make it from scratch - I suspect this product has all the charm of nitro-keg. True a bucket doesn't (yet) have an app - which is all to the good!

    Device made for those that want to say "I am brewing my own beer" with just pressing the button which removes the whole adventure of actually doing it by yourself.So , for the show offs.


    In the end, it always comes to the price also.

    For anyone who really wants to do it, then there are a lot of youtube videos and pages that explains this, and it is quite an adventure. Nobody gets it from 1st(2nd or 3rd) try, but once you have it, you can truly say "I am brewing my own beer".
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Does this mean we're going to get a Hexus review when this comes out, along with plenty of tipsy Hexus staffers.

    Just two weeks to brew? They won't be *that* tipsy unless they drink the lot in one sitting

    Most of the fun of homebrewing is ignoring the instructions and messing with the brew. First thing to go should be the plain white sugar that kits tell you to use, no flavour in that. Use brown sugar instead, I used to add a dollop of dark treacle If you are just going to insert a capsule of ingredients, then you might as well just open a can of something already brewed.

    A capsule-based homebrew/craft beer is an oxymoron.

    So, let's see. Fully equipping the idiot-hutch with these.

    I drink 3 beers a night. 3x7=21, minus 1 or so for the occasional night where I'm at the pub. So say 20.

    5 litres = ~10 pints (568ml / pint but you always get a bit of head unless you're a southerner.... and the less said about that the better).

    Two machines full per week, two weeks for each machine to bre....

    ...yeh, I'm gonna need a few of these.

    I expect so. Making it cold is what you do to beer that doesn't taste nice
