How many ltrs adz? Too Small a scale will be difficult for several reasons.

i was thinking about 2 to 3 ltrs as i could just scale down a heap of things.. try it and if i like it go full scale. if i hate it pour it down the drain and not waste to much money

I've actually tried the oztops stuff and it is extremely simple and definitely makes alcoholic beverages. Can't see why it wouldn't work for beer as well.
