True... and on my own part, I apologize for my part in that.

So... back to that. What are YOUR thoughts? Get that discussion rolling... I, personally, see nothing remotely logical about the brewery-as-engineering set, and hope that they dump that concept entirely for any potential sequel. But, other than a brief discussion about "the beer vats are supposed to be individual sub-reactors" (which, since they're made from relatively thin sheet-metal, is hard for me to buy into) and the obvious "this engine system involve water flowing through clear pipes towards a mince-meat-maker" (By the way, did anyone who saw that NOT think of the "mashers" bit from Galaxy Quest???)... well, it's damned hard to analyze much. Lots to criticize, sure, but remarkably little to actually analyze.

But if you disagree... by all means, get the ball rolling.
