PH, enzyme rests, mash schedule, water temperature, sparging method, and more! Understanding these factors is crucial to successfully creating tasty beer every time. These variables change from beer to beer and can be a lot to grasp at first, but they will become second nature after instruction and experience.

Homebrew 201: Water Chemistry • $35 • Register
Saturday, May 4th • 2pm-3:30pm
This course will cover the importance of evaluating and creating the water you need to brew great beer, because you cannot make good beer without good water, period. Do you use city, well, or filtered water? Are you making a stout or a pale ale? Do you want the hops to shine, or a soft mouthfeel? The differences in the mineral makeup and chemical balance in the water you use for brewing are crucial to have control over these variables. We will be demonstrating various water chemistry profiles, and provide a tutorial on water profile software programs so you can get the water (and, thus, beer) you want!

Saturday, May 11th • 2pm-3:30pm
Bottling is a fantastic way to package and store your beer, but it can be time consuming, and is not quite the same as enjoying good beer on tap. If you are ready to add kegging to your brewing repertoire, this is the class for you. This course will focus on the equpiment and techniques needed to successfully keg your beer at home. There is nothing better than pulling that tap of cold homebrew in your own kegerator, but without a working knowledge of all the detailed aspects, it can be a difficult experience. This class will demystify the process and get you kegging!
