TOG members and Capital Brewers return to TOG HQ this Saturday. Hearty brews are on the menu, in both brewing with guidance and instructions from the experts, and tasting craft beer made earlier!
A very rough time-line of a brew day is as follows:
- 10:30am – 12pm: Heating water, water treatment and mashing grain
- 12pm – 2pm: Boiling, BBQ, beer tasting from previous brews and visitors beers
- 2pm – 4pm: Cooling and clean up
Every brew day is slightly different with a mix of brewers, recipes and techniques. This weekend Michelle will be brewing a pale ale, similar to something you would get from Sierra Nevada. We will be bottling the mixed berry cider kit that was bottled last month so that should be ready when we meet again in September.
The long term goal would be to get a full set of brewing equipment that TOG members can use themselves at the space and make your own beer, cider or wine whenever you like! All you need are the ingredients. This is a monthly event that usually happens the first/second weekend in a month so if you can’t make this brew day there will always be another opportunity.
Its always a fun and engaging day, the cost is free (donations are welcome) so come along, ask questions and even help with the brewing!
Capital brewers discussion is here, and pictures of our previous brew days can be found here.
