Product Description

The Beer Machine brews, ferments, carbonates and dispenses all in one foolproof system. The Beer Machine 2000 takes a historically complex process and makes it simple, without compromising flavor, aroma or appearance. One easy, quick step, and a few days in the fridge. Brewing beer has never been even close to this easy…or this good. Great beer doesn’t have to take long to brew. The Beer Machine 2000 can do it in as little as seven days. You may want to give your own beer ten, but that’s still under half the time it takes most old-fashioned homebrewers. Highly Customizable, The Beer Machine 2000 features a brand-new custom made precision pressure gauge that measures the volume of CO-2 gas inside The Beer Machine so you have the knowledge and power to alter the amount of carbonation in your beer during and after brewing. In addition, to allowing you to better control your brewing you can control the serving process. Knowing the amount of pressure inside The Beer Machine allows you to pour your beer with exactly the beerhead you desire. Also you can customize the two extra beer tap handles that come with the model 2000. Display the name of your brew or the Brewmaster.

Customer Reviews

After the 7-8 day period the beer was totally flat.

I have lost lots of beer because the gasket leaked; or because the pressure release valve failed, or because the carbonation valve stuck, etc.

Got this as a gift and it's been a pain ever since, don't waste your time or money on it.

There is only one good thing about this product. It introduces a lot of people to the joy of homebrewing. However, after purchasing 3 of these (thinking I would give them away as gifts), and then using all of them due to the ongoing array of problems I had, I decided NOT to pass this poor product on to people I care about. I have lost lots of beer because the gasket leaked; or because the pressure release valve failed, or because the carbonation valve stuck, etc. I have replaced each of these only to have them go out again, in mere weeks. Shipping for these very small items is $10 each time. Ridiculous.

The beer isn't bad. The concept is great. The product really sucks. Get a normal brewing kit. You'll make much better beer, enjoy the fact that everything works, and save yourself a lot of time and headaches. I wish I had paid attention to those who wrote negatively here. I would be hundreds of dollars ahead. I love brewing beer at home. But my miserable experience with three beer machines need not be your own. Get a Coopers or a kit from any homebrewing store. You WILL thank me. If only I had listened...

i have made 3 batches with it and everyone has come out perfect. just add the mix water and a packet of brewers yeast and even a small packet of baking yeast will work. its easy no mess and you dont need to add any sugar unlike its lower priced ugly cousin mr beer. the only recomenation i have is when you pour half of it with water then add the mix stir it untill almost disolved then add more water. make sure its alittle warmer then room tempature. alot of it will disolve. then add the yeast and wait about 5 days then put it in the fridge for 10 and it will be perfect.

If you're looking for something that makes decent beer 1 or 2 times, then makes some great brown sugar, THIS IS FOR YOU. Otherwise, pass. Worked well the first couple of times I used it, now it doesn't hold pressure and makes syrup. Customer service is pretty weak as well. I think they KNOW they have a flawed product, but would rather not admit it. This thing is worth about $25. If you can get it for that, go for it, otherwise, don't waste your money

I hesitated to buy it after I reviewed all the comments here. However because there are only a few choices for homebrew and this one is the best I decided to buy one on my local store instead of online in case I need to return.
After assembling a few times I still saw the slow leak and I almost gave up. In the end I wanted to give it another try before I returned it. I fill the beer machine with water to the mark level on the machine. Injected CO2 to add pressure inside the beer machine. Then I grabbed a bigger storage box and filled water. I put the beer machine inside the storage box full of water. I finally found that the gas leak came from the pre-installed gauge. I just used wrench to tighten the gauge and tested it again in the water and monitored it for a while. This time there was no bubble coming out at all. After that I put the beer mix and sealed the machine. After 12hr I saw the pressure reached 10 PSI and next day the pressure reached its limit 15 PSI. Later the pressure kept 15 PSI and I could smell because the machine valve release gas in order to keep it under 15 PSI.
In the 5th day the pressure was down to 12 PSI and I knew the fermentation was almost done. I tapped a little bit and it tasted flat beer. I put it in the refrigerator and from second day I started to drink my draft beer. It is very good taste and all my hard work paid off.
Yesterday I started my second batch and now the pressure reached 12 PSI. In less than one week I can drink my second draft beer. Cheers!
This beer machine won't work without putting your own effort. It is important to test it before you use it.
Solution:Put the beer machine inside water and find/fix any leak. After that you can enjoy your draft beer.
The review here helped me a lot and I want to share my experience too.

The Beer Machine arrived on Friday, 6-27-08, and by Saturday afternoon I had it assembled and a batch of beer in the works. Before starting on the assembly procedure I thoroughly read the entire manual, not a huge feat as it's only a few pages long, so as to give myself every opportunity to get it right. I had seen the bad write-ups from people whose units wouldn't seal, but I had also watched the video at the Beer Machine homepage from a television news program showing two guys putting a unit together successfully and trying the beer a couple of weeks later. Assembly went pretty smooth except that I forgot to put the float and tube in the first time and had to take it back apart. The keg is in two pieces, an upper and lower half, which join together via sliding locks with a silicone gasket providing the seal between the halves. Getting the seal seated in the bottom half groove is not difficult, but you must pay attention and make sure it really is seated all the way around. There are no helpful photos in the manual to show you just how the seal should fit, so you are pretty well left to guesstimate. The instructions tell you that the seal may be warmed up if needed to make it more pliable, but mine was at room temperature and very workable already. Once put together it was time to pressure test the beast. The only places the manual suggests you check for leaks are around the spigot, the CO2 charger, and the cap on top of the unit. My unit showed no leaks in any of these areas, so it was on to sanitizing. Here I took a side road and used Star-San rather than bleach. Bleach requires an awful lot of rinsing to get rid of the taste and odor while Star-San requires no rinsing at all. Finally, it was time to start my first Beer Machine brew.Read more ›
