Anyone see THIS from Beverage Factory? On first look I was all whatever but the more I look at it the more interested I am in it. Mash and boil in the same vessel, brew inside (I assume a good vent would be necessary) and programmable and constant mash temps. Anyone see this thing already?

Our LHBS sells them.  Looks like a cheap, lower quality Grainfather.

Yeah, it's only $300. REVIEWS on Amazon are surprisingly good.

Time to heat and boil would be increased over 240v. I have a spreadsheet that can calculate the time.

In the Q&A section someone says it takes 20 minutes to get 4 gallons to strike temp and then 15-20 minutes to get to a boil. That sounds longer than my propane burner but it doesn't sound unbearable to me. Although... I have no patience sometimes so there could be some swearing. :D

Input water temp will play a role in the time. Time seems low to me.
