I have not yet purchased any equipment or kits yet. I figured I would take advice from experienced brewers before I take on this new hobby. I'm a good cook in the kitchen and can follow recipes, I'm familiar with sanitation and contamination. My full time job is swimming pools so I know plumbing and filtration. I like the idea of crafting 5 liter kegs just enough to share with a friend. I live in apartment so no space for a large setup and small batches seems more reasonable. I would like to go into the direction of self sustainability when it comes to raw materials, yeast grains and hops. I know I am capable or propagating yeast and buying local hops and grains. If knowing what you know now, what method and setup would you go with to get started??
