I live in a small apartment in Montreal, and I love homebrewing. I love to read about it, talk about it, and think about how to do it better.

This blog is here because the typical way to make beer at home involves equipment that takes up much more space than I have at my disposal in my own apartment. I’ve been brewing with friends for a few years using the standard 19L system, but this summer I thought I’d take a shot at putting together a new apartment friendly brewing system. It needs to be efficient, it needs to be compact, and it needs to make use of the burner and temperature controller already in my apartment (my oven/stove).
