Home Beer Brewing--good or bad idea?

Pei | Sep 7, 2006 04:58 AM

First question: is it completely insane to attempt home brewing in a one bedroom apartment? I tend to think the answer is yes, but maybe it's been done?

Second question: where do I get the supplies? Are there beer brewing stores, or do I go to a restaurant supply store?

Third question: what kind of quantities am I looking at? 12 bottles? 24 bottles?

Final question: what's the typical up front cost? I know it's going to cost me more than going to the store for some beer, but how much more?

I found these very basic instructions on line, but was wondering if anyone had had particularly positive/negative experiences with home brewing.
