The cost to create one of these yourself is surprisingly cheap. After doing a quick tally of the parts that the Kegbot project recommends, you could be pouring your own beer at home for around $600 (that’s for a unit not using a tablet like Carff did). Not a bad weekend project to surprise your poker buddies with at the next get together. The best part of the whole project is that it’s totally open for you to customize any way you want. The Arduino board allows you to experiment with different ideas and make your beer dreams become reality.
