This class is designed for individuals who are interested in learning about making home brewed beer but have either never done it before or perhaps have only made a batch or two on a department store style kit like "Mr. Beer" or similar kits. This would also be a good session to attend if you have brewed a batch or two but something didn't go quite right.

To give participants a general understanding of the homebrewing process using malt extracts.

This is a demonstration/workshop style class with an ongoing Q&A dialog. This session will walk you through the brew day process and we will also demonstrate tasks that occur at later times in the process such as transferring and bottling. Just to be clear, the students will not be taking any beer home.

Typical questions answered:
  • What is Beer?
  • Is it legal?
  • How long does it take?
  • What kind of equipment do you need?
  • How much does it cost (upfront, ongoing)?
  • How is the style of beer affected by ingredients?
  • What determines the strength (alcohol percentage)?
  • What is the basic process and timeline from brewing to drinking?
  • How do you transfer beer between containers
  • How do you package beer and what types of containers are suitable?
In summary, these are all questions that a walk-in customer would typically ask as they browse the store assuming they have no previous brewing experience. It is our intention to refer those customers to this class so that they can get all the answers along with their peers when the shop is quiet and they have our undivided attention.

Attendees of this class will receive a 10% off discount on any beginner equipment or ingredient kits (first time customers only).

We plan to have run this particular class once or twice a month though there may be some breaks depending on demand. The available dates, if already scheduled will be listed as a drop down option above the "add to cart" button. If there are no sessions scheduled, it will say "no sessions available at this time".

The class is planned for 1.5 to 2 hours and leaves plenty of time for questions and answers throughout the session.
