The starsan was around 6000 yen for 32 ounces.

Expensive, but worth it to me. Should last me 4 or 5 years of regular brewing.

Still haven't received the Starsan, but Home Brewing Service emailed me again saying that due to the influence of the snow last week, my delivery might be delayed. It looks like they are in business.

My Starsan arrived tonight, so they must still be running.

I was in a Ramen shop the other day, and I noticed their giant jet burners that are already set in a table. They look like they would be perfect for brewing beer. Has anyone tried using them? If only nanobrewing was legal in Japan...

EDIT: One of these. They're basically burners set in a table, low to the ground, and made to hold giant pots of soup. It seems like you could add a couple of pumps and have yourself a good nanobrewery.

I'm pretty sure nano brewing's legal here so long as you go through the licensing. Isn't Zig Zag in Kyoto nano?

Zig Zag has their own craft beer?

Can't really recommend it but it does exist and makes keg sized batches. I'm pretty sure their output would qualify as nano but I could be wrong.
