Brew School 101: Getting Started in Homebrewing

Make your own beer?? Oh hell yeah!

Welcome to Bull City Homebrew's Brew School, a 101 level class designed for people who have never brewed a batch of beer before and are interested in learning how, or for people that have made a batch or two and still have questions.

This class teaches you everything you need to know to go from opening up an extract recipe kit, brewing up the batch of beer and then bottling it to enjoy with your friends. No prior knowledge of homebrewing is required.

Will we be making a batch of beer?

Yes and no... we make a small batch so you can see what all of the ingredients look like and smell like. When Julia Child demonstrates cooking Thanksgiving dinner, she puts an uncooked turkey in the oven and pulls out a roasted bird 15 seconds later. We do the same type of thing... you won't be watching water boil for an hour in this class.

So how long does the class take?

We'll show you the entire process from opening the recipe kit to bottling in about 1 hour and 15 minutes. We think you'll be so excited after the class that you'll want to run back home and brew one up right away... and we don't want to take any of your valuable time away from that!

We like to keep the classes small, no more than 20 people. Signing up is on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you've got any questions, send us an email at brewschool@bullcityhomebrew.com.

You're also welcome to stay after class and pick up equipment and ingredients to make your first batch of beer at a 10% discount, a special perk we offer our newly graduated Brew School students. Office hours are immediately after class, and schmoozing with the professors is also encouraged, as they can provide tips on making your first beer a winner.

We hope to see you in class!
