Intro to Homebrewing
Thursday, May 30, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (PDT)
Intro to Homebrewing
You can brew that! Learn how to make your own beer from Chris Cohen, founder of the San Francisco Homebrewers Guild, in this introductory workshop cohosted by Urban Kitchen SF and CUESA. The class will cover brewing basics, including proper sanitation practices, adding malt extract, pitching yeast, and finally bottling the beer. You'll try samples of different styles of beer, as well as the beer at various stages. A representative from San Francisco Brewcraft will also discuss buying ingredients and equipment. Armed with this knowledge you'll take home a $40 gift certificate to San Francisco Brewcraft and a coupon for 10% off beer-making supplies, so you can start brewing at home.
Date & Time: May 30th, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Location: CUESA Dacor Outdoor Teaching Kitchen at San Francisco's Landmark Ferry Building (South Arcade)

Chris Cohen found his passion for brewing after he was given a homebrew starter kit for his birthday in 2009. Chris has brewed dozens of successful extract, partial-mash, and all-grain method beers. During his first few years of brewing, Chris found himself wishing there was a local homebrew club and better organization in the SF homebrewing scene so he could interact with and learn from other homebrewers. He decided to do something about it and launched the San Francisco Homebrewers Guild in February 2012 during SF Beer Week.Within its first year, the SFHG gained over 90 paid members and grew its mailing list to over 600 local homebrewers. The SFHG has grown rapidly thanks to a constant stream of fun and educational homebrew-oriented events including brew days, homebrew shares and competitions. In early 2013 Anchor Brewing agreed to host the SFHG’s monthly meetings in their taproom and the SFHG launched their “Homebrewer of the Year” homebrew competition series. SFHG members range from hardened all-grain vets to brand new extract brewers, their motto is “Brew better beer and share it!” Chris is currently acting as the President of the SFHG and welcomes new members to learn more by visiting the SFHG website, SFHG Facebook page, or SFHG MeetUp group.
