What's goin' on?
Our first brew-in-a-bag (BIAB) class is scheduled for Sunday, 6/16, which is Father’s Day.
Brewing is a great way to spend some time with a Dad in your life, so sign up soon. The cost for the course will be $35/person. We’ve already had a lot of interest in this course, so spots will probably go fast!
Our high-gravity liquor aged class will be on Sunday, 6/9.
Intermediate: Minimum equipment all-grain brewing.
Spaces in the class will be available first-come, first served as usual.
Since this beer requires more ingredients than what we usually need for an all-grain session, the fee for the class will be $40/person.
After the class decides what type of liquor they’d like to use to age the beer, an additional fee will be assessed for the purchase of the bottle.
A 48 hour notice is required if you need to withdraw from the session. Please sign up as soon as possible so we can begin soaking the oak chips for the brew.
On March 3rd, we’ll have another all-grain class for those folks looking for a more in-depth look at the brewing process.
Topics covered include equipment selection and use, recipe formulation, the brewing process, sanitation, and bottling. Course fees include ingredients for the brew and an information packet to take home.

Our next class is scheduled for February 17th.
For those who aren’t familiar with the term, extract brewing uses malt sugar that has already been extracted from the grain, thus removing several steps and a large amount of extra equipment and time.
Compare extract brewing to making a cake from a box…all the ingredients are prepackaged and ready, just follow the directions. All-grain brewing is like baking your cake from scratch. You decide the amounts of each ingredient as well as when and how to add them. All-grain gives more room for awesome, but more room for disaster.
