But now, the $5,000 (or so) WilliamsWarn Personal Brewery, created by a pair of New Zealanders, produces chilled, ready-to-drink home brews in just seven days. "If Willy Wonka had invented a home-brew beer machine," it would work as magically as this contraption — which, sadly, won't be available in the U.S. for months. Source: Wired.
