That and two different kinds of yeast would give you the most that you could show them with one batch wort.
If you could do a 10 gallon boil you could split it into for roughly 2 1/2 gallon fermenters and show how temperature and yeast make so much difference in the flavor.

It would be cool if the college followed up with a second class that had time for all grain brewing.
I suppose it depends on the turnout they get for this.
They have anticipated that there will be a big turnout for this class. I am going to limit the size of the class to about 12, but agreed to do a second class if there is a large turnout. My hope is that once the classes are done I may be invited to do an all grain advanced class.. Will let you know how that turns out.

Was in touch with one of the LHBS and they are willing to provide ALL brand new equipment to use during the first class, plus have a full setup for display if anyone wants to purchase it. PLUS, offer a discount on a startup brewing system for anyone who attends the class.

Spoke with the A-B distributor in our area and they are willing to donate give-aways to all that attend the class. Plus they will donate sample beers (Goose Island, Shock Top) for the class to taste.

Looks like this is going to be one fantastic class!!

That's great!
Getting new people into brewing is a win all the way around.
First, it's profitable to sell the stuff so more places to shop.
Second, if the volume of equipment sales goes up due to more brewers, that usually makes the prices go down.

Most important, the more we are, the better we do with any legislation pertaining to our hobby. We actually begin to count to the legislators if we are a big enough voting block.
