The starting date for the homebrewing class has been moved back by a week, so if you’re interested, there’s still time to reserve a place, either by emailing brewing [at] 091labs [dot] com, or on the eventbrite page. Classes start the 1st of March, at noon. They cost €40/person, last three weeks, and at the end, you’ll have some homemade beer to take home.  Any questions can be directed to brewing [at] 091labs [dot] com.

Homebrewing @ 091 Labs: Workshops Starting Oct 12th

Oisin

 

WP_000861

Back in August we had our first homebrewing workshop of 2013 at 091 Labs, and it was a great success! A member of the local brewing community guided nine intrepid attendees through the ins and outs of their first kit brew, from basic theory, through fermentation to bottling and conditioning. Their reward: twenty bottles of beer they had made themselves and the basic skills needed to move on to their next brewing project with confidence. We really couldn’t have done it without the skills and patience of Geoff, homebrewer extraordinaire, and the participation of Home Brew West, Ireland’s largest supplier of homebrewing equipment.

 

 

Starting this Saturday the 12th of October at 12pm we’ll be kicking off our second round of workshops geared towards first-time brewers who want to be shown the ropes by an experienced home brewer and learn to avoid the common pitfalls that can ruin a first brew. The cost of this workshop is €35pp and attendees will get to bring home 20 bottles/20 pints/10 litres of their brew at the end of the course. The course will be run with 2 people per brew kit (basically sharing the workload and end product brew).

You can register your interest for the event by emailing your details to brewing@091labs.com.

Please note that there will be a minimum of ten attendees so it is important to get in touch with us to confirm your place.

Week 1: (First meeting) – you will sit down with Geoff who will explain the differences between the  different kinds of beers, explain the process of brewing (fermentation, bottling etc) and a trip to local craft beer pub The Salthouse for examples of beer styles (sample platters are included in the cost of the workshop). Attendees will pick what type of type of brew you want to make for the classes.

Week 2: The brewing proper begins.
Week 3, 4 or maybe 5: Teaching of proper bottling sterilisation and bottling of brew until it is completed.

The brewing classes will take place in the homebrewing corner of our hardware area at 091 Labs and tutorials/discussions will be held in the main room, usually for a few hours from noon on the Saturday. The brew buckets and other equipment will be supplied and stored in the brewing area.

This is a strictly over-18s event, ID will be required if necessary.

Upcoming Linux and Python intro courses

Padraic

Tux-G2pythonWe in 091 Labs are kicking off our 2013 classes with a bang!

Starting next week are a series of 4 introductory classes in both Linux and Python. Due to the many requests we’ve received over the last year, we’re going to try an experiment with these. Attendees are given the option of choosing one of three time tracks to attend for either and that is the time they attend every week. More info on the classes below

The price for attending is €5 per class for 091 Labs members (€20) and €10 per class for the Public (€40) paid in advance online or at the first class. Links to the various Eventbrites below.

Intro to Python

What you will learn

Start with the basics of programming and how they are dealt with in Python3, moving through functions, data structures, and classes before explaining correct code style. Then stepping into more advanced topics of data handling and files, using the underlying operating system. Following that we’re delve into some functional programming, packaging and installing programs, and some basic server and web templating.
