Below you'll find information on each of our experiences to help you make the right decision in terms of what works best for you.
Brew your own beer in groups of up to three or four people - during these sessions, your group decides upon the type of beer you'd like to brew (sorry no lagers) and with assistance from our workshop instructors help craft a recipe to attempt to hit all the right notes in terms of your desired characteristics. You'll weigh out your grains and mash in prior to an in-depth discussion on the process of brewing. As theory ends, you'll sparge (rinse) your grains before bringing your wort to the boil and adding hops. We'll explore a variety of hops and learn more about how they play an important role in beer. At the end of the boil, we'll cool your wort before it is transferred to a sanitized fermenter and yeast is pitched. 3-4 weeks later, you'll return to bottle your beer and take home. You'll target around 20 litres of beer which should equate to approximately 60 bottles of your beer ready to drink a week or two after bottling.
Beer Making and Tasting Workshop for individuals - during these sessions, we decide upon a range of beer styles to brew. Attendees will help execute recipes as we tweak existing recipes or experiment with new ingredients or styles. In terms of brewing, you'll assist in weighing grains, mashing, sparging, hop additions and pitching yeast. During the course of the brew day we'll sample a number of a beers as part of our exploration of beer styles. At the end of the day, you won't go home empty handed - choose from either a home brew 5 L equipment starter kit or a £25 store credit to enjoy on beers and home brew supplies.
Our Stayhome Brewing Workshop is designed for those wishing to commence brewing from the comfort of their own home. You receive ingredients for your first brew along with a 5 L home brew starter kit. We'll mail you some helpful how to videos and you'll have access to a recording of a start to finish brewday with all the brewing theory you could need!
