Workshop: Brewing Beer

October 24, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Have you always wanted to brew your own beer? Curious about what’s involved? Just want to impress your friends? Come join us and find out just how easy it is!¬†In the course of an afternoon, we will go from the basic ingredients of malted barley, hops, water, and yeast to fermenting beer. Return three¬†weeks later for the bottling process, and you will get to take some beer home for your enjoyment.

While learning to brew, we will talk about beer styles, what goes into them, and how they get their flavors and even sample a few. You will learn a bit about yeast, sugars, hops, and water and how they affect the beer. We will talk about alcohol, how to determine ABV(alcohol by volume), and how to adjust it. We will also take some time to talk about the things that can go wrong, and how to avoid them.

We will cover the basics of brewing, brewing equipment, what you truly need to brew and what makes the process easier. We will talk about some of the local resources, putting together a brew system, and see some examples of different brewing systems.
