Hong Kong’s beer culture is definitely hitting its stride with a surge of beer festivals and craft beers popping up on restaurant menus. Ever thought of brewing your own beer at home? It’s time to roll up your sleeves and start making some great beer!
This three-hour workshop is a hands-on crash course on how to brew beer at home. You will learn about the 4 basic elements of beer – water, grains, hops and yeast – as well as the 6 basic steps of brewing – sanitizing, mashing, sparging, boiling, fermentation and bottling. Throughout the experience, your instructors will introduce you to beer appreciation and walk you through the history of beer, basic beer styles, and even matching beer glasses. By the end of this session, you will be able to distinguish the taste between an American Adjunct Lager and a Belgian Tripel! You will learn how brewers create aromas, colors, flavors and textures by transforming a few simple commodities into an exquisite work of its own.
The experience doesn’t end there! You will get to bring home the entire brew kit (size: 12” x 6” x 6”). For the next two weeks, you will be watching the yeast transforming the ordinary sugar liquid to your own tasty great beer. You will also have the fun of bottling the beer and making your own beer labels. In another week, you can go ahead and crack off that bottle cap, take a sip and “mm… ahhh…”– that’s what your homebrew beer tastes like!
You will produce a gallon of beer, which is enough to fill 6-8 bottles.?You will also get to keep the beer brewing kit, so once you have learned the basics, you can start planning your next homebrew. We will make a seasoned home brewer out of you!
