Urban Dwellers Should Consider Small Batch Brewing

Brewing Small Batch Beer isn’t Just for Country Folk


Here at Brau Supply, we want to spread the joys of homebrewing to as many people as possible. Small batch beer is something that can be enjoyed by literally anyone who likes beer. As the makers of professional grade all-in-one brewing systems for home brewers, we want to take some time in today’s post to tell those who live in urban environments that homebrewing is an activity that can be enjoyed anywhere. Just because you live in an apartment complex doesn’t mean you have to miss out on creating your very own small batch beer, and today we are going to list a few reasons that you should consider brewing your own small batch beer.


Small Batch Beer Doesn’t Need a lot of Room


We often hear people say that they just don’t have enough room to brew beer in their apartment. Not only is this a horrible excuse to not brew beer, it’s also just not true. With our all-in-one home brew systems, you really only need a space large enough to set the system. With space out of the way, here are a few more reasons your urban dwelling is a perfectly acceptable place to brew beer.


  • Supply Cost: Since space is somewhat limited in an apartment, it is likely that you will only be producing about 5 gallons of beer at a time. While the cost of ingredients scales proportionally to how much beer you make, if you’re only making small batches of beer the production cost definitely won’t break the bank.
  • Brew Often, Learn Faster: Since you will be making rather small batches of beer in an apartment setting, you will be able to produce more beer. As we all know, practice makes perfect, so if you are able to brew multiple small batches of beer more frequently, you will not only learn the brewing process much quicker, you will have a lot more beer to enjoy.
  • Experimentation: The best part about small batch brewing, other than the beer itself, is the fact that there is no limit to the amount of experimentation you can have with your brews. Small batch brewing means that you are able to experiment with many different varieties and styles of beer without committing a lot of time, resources, or energy to the brewing process. Plus, with our all-in-one home brew systems, cleanup is a breeze, meaning you can have multiple boils in a single day.
  • Control: Although it is not a common occurrence, occasionally brewing beer can be dangerous. Large amounts of liquid and heat can lead to large messes or even fires, but with small batch brewing, these risk factors are almost entirely eliminated. Our all-in-one brew systems come with electric controls to ensure that you maintain control over your boil at all times.
