Join us on Sunday 11 February 2018 from 2pm to 6:30pm for an afternoon of brewing, eating and learning. Experience a full-grain brew – learn how to homebrew while enjoying some delicious food and samples of beer.
This is a course for people who have no homebrewing experience but are interested in giving it a go, or are already brewing from a kit but want to take the next steps towards a “full mash”. You are also very welcome if you like beer and just want to sit back, observe the transformation process of grain to beer and learn a bit about different beer styles, and beer & food matching.
Here are the details:
The brew: Throughout the afternoon we will be jointly brewing a 40-pint batch of pale ale, while learning the basics of homebrewing, the ingredients, the kit, recipes and the processes.
The food: We will be keeping you well fed and watered throughout the afternoon, with various beer and food matches for you to try out.
The time: 2pm to 6.30pm, Sunday 11 February 2018
The place: The Edible Flower, 121 Middle Road, Saintfield, Co. Down, BT24 7LS
