    Brew it in the kitchen, it is after-all where the beer is stored, why not make it there too? I read that most people who do this are only doing it for specialty malts, can it be done with anything or is that just "the norm"?

    The only folks that I know that brew in the kitchen are the ones that don't have a turkey frier, no balcony for their apartment, or just know any different.
    As for Partial Mashing, this is the process that gets the brewer one step closer to All Grain brewing because instead of just steeping the specialty grains, the brewer gets to mash the specialty malts with a portion of the 2-row. Most homebrewers just don't have the equipment to graduate to All Grain brewing but all extract brewers have the equipment to Partial Mash.

    That is starting to make sense to me, the friend who stuck the idea in my head lives on the 3rd floor of a condo unit and he has no real personal space other than the what is in the condo. When doing this is it better to get single items or an entire kit?

    Usually when you buy the whole kit, the price will be less than if purchasing separately. That's if you get everything from a homebrew store. You can make your own bottling bucket, what we used to partial mash in, pretty cheaply.
