Go for it.
I'm in a condo and have done several brews, it's not too bad. The biggest issue is keeping the fermentation jug at a lower temperature (most yeast likes sub 70 unless you have a saison/farmhouse style yeast). I got a big plastic bucket, but water around the sides of the fermentation bucket and add frozen water bottles/ice packs to keep it cold. The yeast does some serious work and creates heat.
Sanitation is a big deal, but I have never had an issue with a contaminated batch. Aggressive fermentation can sometimes have your back and after it has fermented for a while, the alcohol will help as well. For what it costs for supplies, be as sanitary as possible.
Star-san is the way to go
I had issues in the past with the powdered sanitizors killing the head on my beers. This stuff has never given me a problem.
Plan for 4 weeks at the minimum to go from nothing to a drinkable beer, most will take a bit longer. It will be faster if you have a CO2 setup, but I would advise starting out with bottle conditioning your beers, it is more cost effective if you decide that brewing isn't for you.
Also, more sugar = more alcohol more or less. I have purposely left out a half gallon of water initially to create a slightly stronger beer. Don't go crazy on it though, certain yeast doesn't do well creating high gravity beers.
Watch some videos before you start, once you understand the process after a few brews, you'll start to make your own changes.

IIRC, you still can't make hard alcohol.
You can make and keep up to 100 gallons of wine and beer for yourself.
