Beer Making - Sat 26th - 9:30am to 5pm Cider Making - Sun 27th - 9:30am to 5pm
Hulme Community Garden Centre

This is a course for those out there who would like to learn how to brew beer of the quality produced by professionals. The session will be largely practical but will include a brief overview of the theory necessary to brew good beer from a malt mash. A set of course notes will be provided.
All equipment and ingredients will be provided but students should bring a sterile demijohn or other container (for example, a 5 litre plastic bottle with a secure top) to allow them to take home a quantity of wort for the final fermentation. Brewing can be messy and some sort of protective clothing is advisable.
The course is run by Chris Holliland of Brewlab.
This course and cider making are run on consecutive days, so that you can do them individually, or have a go at both in the same weekend.
