BeerMKR might be the perfect automatic beer brewer

September 18th - via:
In my mind, the perfect automatic beer brewer offers prepackaged ingredients if you want an experience similar to making coffee with a Keurig -- hit a button and you're done.

It should take the beer from start to finish in an authentic brewing process without cutting corners and while controlling the temperature at all stages. Finally, it should be affordable. I've yet to test a beer bot that meets all of my criteria for perfection, but one could finally be on the horizon. BeerMKR launched on Kickstarter on Tuesday, and it does everything I'd hope for in an automatic beer brewer. (Read More)
