A man from Tuscon, Az. has taken to Kickstarter in the hopes of funding one of the dorkiest projects we’ve seen yet: a recipe book and instructional DVD for homebrewing beer inspired by geek culture.
Here’s how the campaign’s creator, Don, describes his product, which he calls “Satyr Stein”:
If picking up a six-pack from the bodega is too easy, and brewing IPAs by hand is too hard, this new app that enables you to control the beer-making process from the lazy comfort of your iPhone may be just right.
The app was developed by Cargo, a team of developers and designers from–where else?–Ireland. It’s called Brewbot. It consists of some sleek metallic brewing equipment that looks straight out of Martha Stewart: Living, and can even be used by people who’ve never before brewed their own hooch, PSFK reports.
