    TAP-A-DRAFT: first impression...

    Been using theTAD system for a while myself. Love it, fits nicely on a shelf in the fridge and is easy to take along to a party or picnic.

    Scaling Down Recipes

    I do small batches all the time, like the others said cut the ingredients in half and leave the time alone. I find I do need to add just a bit more hops to get the flover and bitterness I want. Good luck.

    Does this exist?

    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.

    Pale DME, Dark DME

    I always use equal parts of chocolate and roasted barley, but the barley is a must. The color should be fine just using the roasted barley. If you like the dry Irish stouts you might want to add a 1/4 lb. of crystal rye. Good luck.

    Moving on to my second batch...

    I agree with Gammon, try a brown ale. Keep with a few simple different styles till you get comfortable brewing then more on.

    The hop shortage

    Yep, unfortunatly we'll have to get used to those prices for a while. I don't mind paying a little more but you just can't get some of the varities.
