Beer Off Flavors Workshop

Learn about the beer off flavors, how to identify them, and how to correct them.

A large part about improving yourself as a brewer is understanding how to identify off flavors, how they are created, and how to avoid them. These skill sets are also important for bartenders, servers, restaurant/bar owners.

The average beer consumer should also be aware of how to identify these flaws, and how to politely address the issue if they are served a flawed beer. Not all flaws are equal, and some “flaws” are acceptable to a certain degree in many styles. This course will serve as a building block for building your overall beer knowledge and appreciation.

This 1.5 hr class will provide samples of a control beer that has been dosed with the chemical compounds that we associate with the most common off-flavors in beer production and draft dispense. Includes:

*6* Off-flavors
1 control beer
Guided tasting/instruction

Must be 21, or older, to attend. Valid ID MUST be present at tasting.

All-Grain Homebrewing 101

All-Grain Homebrewing 101 — from equipment needs to recipe selection, mashing, collecting your wort and troubleshooting common issues. This class is designed for brewers of all levels but please note we will not cover the entire brewing process. Rather, we will focus on the key differences in brewing from all-grain with special attention to the mashing process.

All-grain brewing is the process of brewing with base grains rather than malt extract. There are many considerations in moving to this type of brewing. With the right info, all-grain brewing gives you ultimate control over your beers — not to mention it can be incredibly rewarding.

Topics will include:

Why go all-grain?
Equipment options for all-grain homebrewing
Choosing a recipe and ingredients for your first all-grain brew
All-grain water basics
Temperatures, Malt enzymes and Starch conversion
Mashing, Vorlauf and Sparging techniques
Calculating efficiency
Tools and tips to make your all-grain brew day a success
Troubleshooting common issues

Class includes one 8oz. pour from our tasting room

Class length 2 hours Hosted by Sean Watkins & Erick Oropeza
