Beginners Home Brewing Class

100.00

The Sunshower Homebrewing Store will be offering a beginners homebrewing class on Saturday January21st at 11AM*. This class will be taught by Kevin Wright, a professional brewer from Kona Brewing Co. In this class you will learn how to brew a basic west coast IPA using our equipment and will get to keep three gallons (around 30 bottles) of your homemade beer. 

You and one partner will brew 6 gallons (60 bottles) of a beer together. If you do not have a partner, don't worry, one will be assigned at class. After the first session the beer will stay with us as it ferments.  About 2 weeks later you will schedule an appointment to come bottle your beer and take it home with you. 

Cost is $100/person which covers the two classes, beer tasting and snacks, woodfired pizza lunch during class, ingredients, bottle caps and optional flavoring additions. Bottles are not included and can be purchased or brought from home. Students will also receive 15% off their first purchase from the home brew store! 

The First Session will cover factors that make quality beer, in depth discussion on brewing ingredients, brewing techniques, proper sanitation for home brewing, hands-on brewing for beginners and a beer tasting where the instructor will teach how to evaluate quality beer. We will also be serving woodfired pizzas for lunch and beer while we wait for our brew to boil. 

The second session will be scheduled individually and will cover bottling techniques, bottling your beer, capping your beer and beer storage. 

If you have any questions please email us at Kate@sunshowercoffee.com or call us at (847) 254-2787.

*Note: we need at least 4 people to sign up for this class for us to hold it. If we do not have at least 4 sign ups, we will try to reschedule or will refund your class money.
