Brewing: Basics for the Aspiring Home-Brewer

$56

with Jon Stein

Calendar Oct 29, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Discover the centuries-old art of brewing beer with a hands-on, interactive sensory approach. We’ll cover the basics: sourcing ingredients and equipment, recipe building, brewing technique and methodology, beer styles and approaches, troubleshooting and off-flavors, and the craft, science, and magic behind it all! We’ll brew an example beer as a class, taking it through all the necessary steps from brew-day to bottling-day during the course of our syllabus, and will encourage students to brew their own batches at home using the techniques learned. *Note: This class meets two weeks apart for time to complete the fermentation cycle; there is no class 11/05/19. You will bring home two bottles of beer. You must be at least 21 years old to register for this class. Makeup class, if needed, 11/19/19.
