  2. Hey Daniel,

    My buddy and I have been apartment brewing for about 8 months now and we love it. We primarily work with extract for efficiency but would like to attempt an all-grain IPA in the near future. How have you managed an all-grain brew in your apartment?

    • Nice, good to hear! For all-grain, I started out using brew-in-a-bag (BIAB) for a dozen batches or so before moving onto lauter/sparge. I built my own mash tun out of a four gallon stainless steel brew kettle and weldless ball valve. It’s small enough to fit in my oven for mash rest. I’ll likely detail this mash tun build in future blog posts so stayed tuned. Thanks for visiting! Cheers!
