Thanks a ton!
If you stick to extract. All you need for this is a good stockpot and a supply of muslin bags. Perfectly good beer can be made on the small scale with extract and specialty grains. Chill it all is the sink. Keg it in a tap-a-draft.
Done. It doesn't get much more compact than that unless, B3 does start to sell powdered beer.
Of course, once you start, that alter ego on your left shoulder is always gonna jab at your about brewing your beer with only grains and you'll quickly fond that small scale doesn't work very good for that. But, it could still be done. You'll just need to clear out that back room to make room for all the gear.
