Minga Workshop: All-Grain Beer Brewing
April 23, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm$115
This workshop will explore the process of all-grain brewing. Beginning with milled grains and water, participants will proceed through all the steps for making a beer completely from scratch. Each participant will brew their own 4 litre batch of beer on equipment that can be found in most home kitchens.
But why make your own beer? For some people it’s simply a desire to be able to make yet another food at home (after all, beer is known as liquid bread!). For others the motivation is cost-related; good craft beer is pricey, whereas good homebrewed beer can be as cheap as $0.50 a bottle (and sometimes cheaper!). Or maybe it’s the desire to understand and better appreciate all that goes into a wonderful glass of well-crafted beer. For many people in the past (and hopefully never in the future) the only way to enjoy beer was to make it yourself! Whatever the reason, this workshop will focus on giving you the knowledge and confidence you need to go home and start brewing.
