This session is a laid back crash course on homebrewing. It will be conducted in English, but we'll have translators on hand.
The format will be:
1) Jump right into the process together, brewing a 50-liter batch of Belgian-style Saison with homebrew equipment
2) Once our batch gets going, we'll explain the basic chemistry of beer so you know what's happening to the brew
3) We'll go over the steps of the process in detail, so everyone understands how to make their own beer
4) We'll cover beer-making equipment essentials, including what to get and how to take care of it
5) Q&A for the whole group
6) We'll figure out who lives in what area and who likes what kind of beer, and then we'll open it up to networking
What to expect:
We'll have free samples of homemade beer on hand for you to try, but our venue is a craft beer bar, so you'll be able to explore across a pretty awesome selection of beers throughout the duration of the event! Beer will be served throughout the scheduled duration, but you should expect to keep quiet and listen to a few interactive presentations, checking out what's happening with the actual brewing taking place right there in the venue, and watching the projected slides. Don't get too rowdy too early, or you'll ruin the learning for others. Once the crash course is finished, then it's time to get the socialization going.
You should come to this crash course if you:
- Want to learn how beer is made from a fellow home brewer
- Are curious to explore the idea of making your own beer
- Want to meet other beer enthusiasts
- Want to have a blast on Friday evening!
