Hey buddy, I did the exact leap you're looking at doing, last year. I've got a robo brew v3 and have done about a dozen batches. Ive knocked out a few ok beers and some freaking crackers too. You're welcome to come and do a brew day here if you like and check it out before you invest. I'm in New lambton 0407 634 714. just send me a text and well lock it in.
