I am wondering if it is possible to brew in such an environment, and if anyone has similar experiences, would like to hear them. I may have to consider leaving my brewing equipment at my parent's house, although I don't want to (for obvious reasons
Have you tried BIAB? 1 pot on the stove is all you need! And if your sink is too small to wash the pot, you can always use your bathroom. If you have room for your fermenters, I don't think you'll have a problem.

I've been wanting to try BIAB but I can't find the right kind of net to use as a bag... any suggestions? I tried Sarashi cloth but it clogged up very fast, preventing water from seeping through.

No idea for anything local though, sorry.

100 yen shop. Mesh laundry bag. Works great.

I was worried about them being polyester, and was searching for nylon laundry mesh bags. I just looked up the melting point and I suppose polyester is fine also

[QUOTE=tektonjp;4964789]OB, where did you get the rennin? Just use regular milk?

I got that on Amazon.jp but the price for 3gm was 1100 yen plus shipping, kind of pricey. Regular milk will likely be ultra high temp pasteurized, luckily it seems almost all the Japanese milk cartons list the temperature they use. Anything under 77 C should not denature the proteins.

I met up with Surume and got my half of the malt bag from Asahi. I will try some of that English Ale malt he had in my next brew, it does look quite fine! I will use lingerie bags from the 100 yen shop for BIAB, they have a finer mesh.

I talk about beer with my coffee boss, and he now has bought a bench bottle capper and beer bottles to bottle his ice-coffee haha! Crossover between work and hobby!
