I've been offering these classes far less often in days of Covid but I do have one on the calendar for Saturday January 15th. I'm limiting this class to four people to help keep some distance and masks will be required. The store is not open to the public during the class.

Must register by Friday Jan 14th. Beer Brewing Class - All Grain Workshop

This seminar/Workshop is designed for individuals who have some experience brewing with malt extracts or kits (sometimes steeping some grains) as the primary way of creating wort but are interested in learning about the all grain brewing process. Due to the specific focus on how all grain differs from extract brewing, we will be skipping a lot of basics such as bottling and racking processes.

To give participants a general understanding of the all grain brewing process (brewing without having to use malt extra syrups or powders). After the class, students should feel comfortable embarking on their first all grain batch without much additional information.

This is a demo/workshop style class with an ongoing Q&A dialog. A batch of beer will be brewed for exhibition purposes and replicates a typical all grain brew day. The formal class will end at the point where the wort is being boiled because that process remains the same as extract brewing. Any differences will be noted. We will demonstrate the BIAB or Brew In a Bag process but other methods will be explained and contrasted. If a specific class group specifically has interest in using a cooler mash tun or other multi-vessel process instead, that can be accommodated.

Questions answered:
  • How does all grain brewing vary from extract brewing?
  • How do we turn grain into wort if we don't use extract?
  • What are the benefits of using 100% grain?
  • How long does it take?
  • What kind of equipment do you need?
  • How much does it cost (upfront, ongoing)?
  • What is the basic process and timeline from brewing to drinking?
In summary, participants will better understand how all grain brewing works and be able to determine if it's something they would like to progress into in pursuit of brewing nirvana.
