You will need to have lots of ventilation. CO!

With good ventilation and a CO monitor it shouldn't be a problem. Invest in a decent one.

I wouldn't..... carbon dioxide is odorless so it's a big risk, having a sensor is good but I would just go outside and do the boil myself.

Presumably there's a reason why he can't do that or he wouldn't be asking the question...

If you can make sure there is adequate ventilation (personally I would have windows open and extractors running if possible) the risk will be really very low.

I assume you mean a propane burner?

It's not really a great idea. In a garage with the door open that's good, maybe on an apartment balcony if you can get away with it. However, gallons of boiling liquid and an open flame are not likely a good idea indoors. I know we all brew indoors and it is boiling at the same temperature but you asked and I'm just offering my opinion; I would find another way. That's just me though.
By the way I just moved to an apartment from a house and I'm still trying to get it together here.

Check with your home owners/renters insurance.

And landlord, if applicable. They will give you a pretty definitive answer, I bet.

Carbon dioxide, aka CO2, is odorless... but not nearly as dangerous as carbon monoxide, CO. I'd steer clear of using a propane burner indoors.

What if it's natural gas though? Less CO production, right?
