Back by popular demand for 2017! Would you like to make your favorite beverage in the comfort of your own home? I did, and I learned the hard way. I’ll teach you from my mistakes and you’ll make delicious beer for the very first time!
This class is designed for an adult (aged 21+) who has never home brewed before or has been unhappy with their first attempts. We will do all the basics in making a one gallon batch of ale: brewing, fermenting, sterilizing and bottling. Class will start with sampling and learning about beer ingredients. After a hands-on experience with making beer (brewing) participants will get to take home some beer that they bottled themselves. This class makes an excellent gift for the hard-to-shop for person.
Instructor: Jeff Boland has been a Naturalist and Field Instructor at Eagle Bluff since 2003. In addition to his passion for the outdoors, he is an avid Home Brewer. While relatively new to home brewing, Jeff has made more than 100 gallons of delicious beer in the past two years. From stouts to IPA’s, Irish reds to German Hefeweizens.
