We now offer one day
courses in (full mash/all grain) 'home brewing'.
one concise day of
brewing we'll unravel some of the mystery behind
brewing truly great beer.
On the day
An experienced brewer
will run our small group of home brewers through an
explananation of all
the key elements: Including
equipment for home-brewing and the construction of a
home brewery, the raw ingredients used
in brewing and how they fit into recipe formation, the importance of yeast selection and
keeping beer clean and fresh. A 40 minute lunch
break is provided, bring some lunch with you or
choose from several nearby options. A tasting of
PIPES beers is also included in the course fee.
What we brew
We'll brew a batch as
the day runs typically a pale ale style, and at the end you take home the beer
that the group made. Approximately 15-20 pints will be your
baby to then nurture through a fermentation and then
ultimately on to your favourite beer glass.
The course is
aimed at 'Home-Brewers', with the intention of
de-mistifying some of the terminoligy and processes
that surounds the industry. No equipment or
previous brewing experience required on the day.
Although it is recommended that attendees have a
fermentation vessle at home to accomodate the 8-10lt
of unfermented 'wort' each course attendant will take home. We will supply
a suitable vessle for transportation home and
suitable yeast for fermentation. We recommend any
atendees also have equipment for
serving/racking/bottling as may be required.
Beginners are all welcome, as too
experienced home brewers
wanting to add another dimension to their current
brews or maybe graduate to all grain brewing?
The where / The when & The bookings?
Courses will run for
one full day starting at 10am and are normally
finished by 3.30/4pm. Our tiny brewery depicts the
size of our group and as such places are strictly limited to
6 'brewers' per course, so
prior booking is essential. £85 per person is the
current fee to attend.
