Continuous Brewing



The beer fueled genius that defines the bayblab recently came up with the concept of brewing beer as a continuous process instead of the conventional batch method. This would improve productivity and would eliminate a lot of messy steps for the homebrewmaster.
Of course it's all been done before, in 1985.

Why has this not been made into a kit for easy homebrewing? I lack the engineering skills required to build the contraption, but I would love to engineer some yeast for the process.
Hmmmmmm spent yeast.

Ha ha... I took a chemical engineering course in undergrad and had to design a continuous flow process. Unfortunately I no longer have the plans.
