If you can make oatmeal, you can make beer. Brooklyn Brew Shop's apartment friendly Beer Making Kits make it easy to bring brewing out of the garage and into the kitchen using only fresh, whole ingredients and traditional methods used in homes and breweries for centuries. By brewing with the same ingredients (cracked barley, hops, spices and yeast) that the best craft breweries in the world use, making high quality and complex beers becomes possible on the stovetop in your very own kitchen, big or small.

This kit truly does streamline the process of all grain brewing. If you are considering entering the home-brew family, I would definitely suggest starting with a one gallon kit such as this one. The directions are listed on Brooklyn Brewing's website and are relatively intuitive and accompanied by a helpful video which overviews the whole process in around two minutes. Brewing time is around 3 hours the first day and around an hour on bottling day, about a month start to finish.
Things not in this kit that you'll need:
-A big pot or two! I recommend at least a two gallon stockpot as well as another large pot. Having multiple pots makes heating the mash and hot water for the wort much easier.
-Strainer: Large stainless steal is best. You want one that fits over your big pot comfortably.
-ICE! you'll need to cool your wort quickly in an icebath, The easiest way to do this is in your sink with purchased bag ice. Two bags is plenty.
-Bottles! Gotta put that beer somewhere right? Whatever you do, don't go buy empty swing top bottles or a capping setup for this one batch. If you drink Grolsch, you can simply save the swing tops (it's pretty much the same price as buying empties but you get beer). For the cheaper of us, I recommend just getting two 6 packs of 16oz. A&W root-beer. The bottles are brown which helps keep light from affecting the beer, and PET is fairly oxygen impermeable as plastics go. At any rate, with the fairly short timeline of a month from brew to mouth, you'll not likely notice any oxidation (at least it will be the least of your taste worries on this brewing adventure->spend your time worrying about sanitation instead).
This is a great place to start if you would like to start home brewing. It gives you more of a realistic big boy brewing experience than a Mr. Beer or similar extract brewing kit, and you can easily reuse all the equipment in making other small batches in the future. Realistically, if you really enjoyed brewing, you'll probably end up upgrading to a five gallon setup, but it is nice to have a small fermenter for trying off recipe madness on your own. Don't feel cornered into buying the refills either, They are certainly convenient and Brooklyn's kits produce some really great beer, but you can definitely feel free to go buy ingredients yourself either online or at your local home brew shop (LHBS).
Happy Brewing and Good Luck!
