Free home brewing class on Saturday October 29, 2016
We will be offering another free introduction to home brewing class on Saturday October 29th, 2016 from 10 am until noon. This will be our 6th class of 2016.
During this class we will talk about brewing water, grain, malt extracts, hops and the brewing equipment while brewing a 5 gallon batch of beer. We pass around grains for you to smell and taste, hops for you to smell and beer samples for you to drink. This is a great class for new brewers or anyone who has questions about the brewing process. The class is from 10 am until noon. We limit the class to 50 attendees, so please register by calling, or stopping by the store. Our number is 203 452-7332.
