Get it new from their site for $250 with free shipping and probably tax free(is for me)… Just visit their recent kickstarter to figure out how.

edit - thought this one said refurb. maybe i was looking at the past one.

As soon as they release the DIY kits, I’m all in but until then, It just doesn’t seem worth it

[Mod: To be clear, ours is new.]

Or just turn that old fridge in your garage/basement into a keg fridge with a few parts from the local brewery supply store

Or just buy beer at the store like you already do because $250 buys a lot of brewski’s

That’s like telling a photographer or painter to just buy their prints online.

It’s about creativity, not quantity.

And making a keezer’s not really easy - or practical - for most people.

This really is a great deal, if one wants to brew with little space, time, work, or volume commitments.

This is more like telling your artist friend that they should just give up cuz the new iwhatever has a super sweet camera and the filters are totz kewl.

Considering that the pacs are proprietary and there is very little to be done in actual customization compaired to traditional methods, it’s not about creativity, it’s about making a buck.

And no, a keezer is quite easy to fabricate even with the most basic knowledge of power tools.

The small quantity demand has already been met by most brew suppliers, and don’t require a new appliance to take up more of your counter top. Plus the cost per pak is kind of a rip off.

Do yourself a favor and get a 3 gallon kit from Nothern Brewer instead.

If space, time, work, volume, and cost are your priorities, just go buy some beer, or make friends with a brewer.

You’re in the mindset of a homebrewer - not an average person seeking to begin and learn the craft.

No, a keezer is certainly not easy to make. And most people (meaning simple, beer-loving people, who currently have no clue about brewing) typically have neither rudimentary understanding of how to use power tools, the space for a keezer, nor the inclination to have one. I’m BJCP, with an NHC ribbon, have been brewing ~20 years, and still never had one. All my batches have been bottled, happily.

I’ve seen the hardware and time that goes into making a keezer. And while I may be able, I have no urge to use that much time and space to create one. So you can surely bet that “Joe Average Beerdrinker,” just learning to brew, won’t.

This ain’t simple:

The one common ground I see here, though, is that unbeknownst to me earlier, you must purchase the ingredient packs separately and in toto, from the manufacturer. That’s a real hindrance to creativity. I’m not sure I’d buy a system in which I had so little control, recipe-wise.

Their site says you can order custom packs and they have a pretty big selection.

I am a homebrewer and still tempted by this as I get busy at certain times of the year, but would like something that brewed in 5g batches.

How’s this thing handle ventilation? Ie: does it smell? Is it the sort of thing you have to set up in your garage cus otherwise it reeks?

I used to live by a brewery. Whole town reeked of hops.

Great price,fun to use. I’ve had one for the past 6 months. Paid almost double. Every beer has turned out great. I don’t drink lots of beer so this is perfect for me (makes about 15 bottles per batch). You can also do “sous vide” cooking in it. I’ve been really happy with the simplicity of this and the quality of what I’ve made. I’ve tried traditional home brewing in the past but like this better. Good luck in your decision!

Dude, my keezer is 4 2x4’s screwed togeather with alminized bubble wrap for insulation, and a plug and play digital thermocouple; if you can’t handle making that you’re not going to be able to read the instructions to run this thing. It’s simple, but runs without a flaw.

I too was kind of stoked about this thing until I saw the bs proprietary paks, with the good ones selling for $25+ for a dozen beers. I can get pretty decent 5 galon kits for a compairative prices AND tweak as I see fit.

If you find you like brewing this is like a really expensive set of training wheels, if you find you don’t it’s an expensive waste of counter space.

If you’re wanting to take some of the burden out of 5g you might want to look at some of the newer electric kettles. Still first gen stuff so a little pricey and has bugs, but has potential. I’ve been debating on picking up a gigawort.

Please don’t. You are supporting ABInBev by doing this. You know…since they own them now.

About as much creativity as putting a k-cup coffee pod into a Keurig coffee brewer. Insert and push button.

Midwest supplies then? Try to go local but has it’s limits.

Jumped in on the last woot for a higher price, brewed 3 batches so far and I’m relatively happy with the unit especially so after I ditched the horrible serving keg and bought 2 additional brew keg’s and a 3gal ball-lock keg so I can keep batches in the pipeline.

Clean up is a breeze and when Pico releases the BYOB later this year will only make it better. ( I hope)

Pardon my ignorance but what is ABInBEV? because I shop with NB

It’s the big evil beer company that is acquiring craft beer companies in the interest of making money. It’s also a hot-button polarizing topic. Shop where you like and consider shopping around. Stretch your wings if you want to but don’t ever let anyone make you feel bad about shopping NB.

Either you get it or you don’t. Complaining either way shows ignorance of the art. Brew, drink, be happy.
