you could get a 5gal bottling bucket as a primary and a 3gal carboy for secondary. It won't save all that much space, but if you outgrow it and get larger equipment, you'll still have a use for them and it won't be money wasted.

Better bottle makes a 3 gallon carboy. I don't know what else you mean by "system" unless you're planning to brew all grain.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm going to get one of the 3 gallon carboys mentioned and possibly a pig. As to the Mr. Beer jokes.....sigh...right now that's what I DO have....hence my wanting to move on. I'm going to do a few Mr. Beer brews just to get a tiny bit of experience, then get some better stuff.

I was only half joking. I recently got a friend started on that, looking forward to see how it turns out. Got one for my cousin a couple years back for a present too. She certainly enjoyed it, though she didn't get hooked on the bug of homebrewing.

For around $10, you can invest in a Carlo Rossi 4L jug...and it comes with bonus wine! It's not great wine, but it'll do until the jug is emptied and ready for your small batch beer.

I just bought my first one today so I can start some apfelwein, mead, or wine. Only a homebrewer would get so excited about cheap wine!

I brew 3 gallon batches all the time. I have a couple 3 gallon buckets that I got from an online homebrew shop. That and a 3 gallon carboy is all I use and bottle mine in a Tap a Draft plus a couple bottles. Works well for me, don't know if it's anymore compact except for the bottling part.

Oh, the irony. That's what I started with!! A friend gave me one and I bought two more. Made a small batch of wine with one, and apfelwein with the other.

This was our college cheap party drink. 50/50 Carlos Rossi (I believe it was the red wine) and Orange Slice soda made a VERY potent drink that had no hint of alcohol. Only problem was the KILLER (and I mean horrible) hangover the next day. In fact, to this day, my worst hangover came from an all Carlos party. I was hung over the next day until 8pm. Never threw up (probably should have), but was bed-ridden with a vice-like squeeze on my brain. Haven't had a sip of that since.

But in moderation it was very effective on the college budget.

I wasn't really joking about the Mr. Beer. It really was the first thing I thought of when I read your original post. If you already have it I don't see why you can't continue to use the fermenter in making your beers. You don't have to use the Mr. Beer recipe kits. You could just use the fermenter.
