Busy Weekend- A coupla classes.
We'd just like to remind you that we have our Free All-grain brewing class this Saturday from 1:30-4:30ish. This is brewing the commercial way, without extracts. Fee free to bring anyone, and maybe a chair too!
Also, this Sunday (the 13th) is our first winemaking class. This is a fundamentals class that will show you how easy---I mean REALLY easy---it is to make quality wine at home with minimal time and equipment using one of our many kits. Whether you like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cab Sauv., or a wonderful blend, we've got you covered; and you can make it year-round!
The wine class only costs ten bucks and we are offering it at two different times: noon to 2pm and 3 to 5pm. Reserve your space in advance either via phone or swing by the shop. You'll also get a free goodie to take home.
In other news, kegged up a Sour Old Ale earlier today. We brewed this with our friend, Brett Rudolph, back in February on his Blichmann BrewEasy (which he acquired at a right reasonable price from yours truly). We brewed ten gallons of a Dark English Old Ale and split it into two different fermenters, one for the each of us. We fermented it with WLP007 Dry English Ale yeast and then racked to secondary, where we tossed some chunks of barrel staves from a retired Wicked Weed Oblivion barrel.
This beer is already incredibly complex and delicious, with a firm clean acidity and delicious notes of toffee and molasses. Can't wait to get this carbed up and pouring! We'll definitely bring some to share at this month's Brewers Social.
