Are you ready to take your home-brewing to the next level? Brew It Yourself 102 will give you all the techniques you need to make great beer at home via the advanced full-grain brewing method. After the class, you’ll walk away with a case of beer that you helped make, and the confidence to tackle a full-grain batch of beer at home.
You’ll get to take the class in the Comrades Brewing secret beer laboratory. We’ll first create a yeast starter, which will really get your yeast ready to take on the big job ahead of them. Then we’ll brew a 10 gallon batch of beer via the full-grain brewing method. We’ll carbonate our beer both in the bottle, and via force carbonation in a keg. During the brew, we’ll cover all your options for equipment, and dive into the science behind the art.
Since we’ll be going through some advanced techniques, we assume you already have basic brewing knowledge for this class. It is required that you have brewed at home, extract or full grain, or taken our Brew It Yourself 101 class.
This is the only class in SF where you get to learn from a professional brewer, and take home beer that you made. The class is limited to just 8 people, so you’ll get lots of time to ask questions. Your instructor Jason has worked hard to bring the principles and techniques of professional brewing to the world of homebrewing. You’ll really get a unique perspective that will take your brewing to the next level.
