What will you do?
The process of Brew In A Bag is simple, however the different types of beers you can produce with it are endless. Before we start brewing you first need to taste what these differences are. We will start with an explanation about stouts, IPA's, blonds and whites and their recipes. Then each group (3) will choose their recipe and start with their creation. Step by step we will go through the process of milling, mashing, filtering and run storage. While we wait for the hops to boil we will discuss names and design our labels. The bottling itself will happen a month later (this will only take one hour). You will leave with a sixpack of 3 different 'home-brewed' beers. A little patience is needed however, before opening your beers have to rest in their bottle for another 2 weeks.
After the workshop you have gained enough knowledge to start your own home-brewery and start experimenting with different flavours and ingredients.
