Homebrewing Classes and Tutorials


 

 

Starting on the 17th of August 091 Labs will be hosting beginner brewing workshops with a local home brewer every Saturday for a period of 4 weeks (or until the end brews are ready to collect).

The cost of this workshop is €25pp and you will get to bring home 20 bottles/20 pints/10 litres of their brew at the end of the course.  You can also buy another starter kit at the end at cost price (€35) to do your own home homebrewing!
The course will be run with 2 people per brew kit (basically sharing the workload and end product brew).

You can register for the event on Facebook here or email events@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, homebrewer extraordinaire, 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 (there will be a charge of €2 per attendee for sample platters). 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.

First Crafting Day – 10th of August


We’re trying something new at the Labs, and holding a crafting day. The idea is to have a day dedicated to some of our less technology-oriented pursuits. So this Saturday, the Labs should be open for most of the day, with some kind of crafting activity going on. The monthly knitting group will go ahead as usual, from 4 to 7. In addition, a group will be building a small mangonel, in the TNT (Totally Not Toys) workshop. Other events may be added. Everyone should feel free to stop by. If you have any questions, you can leave a comment or reach me at maraley42 [at] gmail [dot] com.

Wanted: Crafty People


The labs is looking to expand the kinds of workshops and events we offer, and so we’re hoping to run more crafting events. Ideally, we’d like to have a monthly crafting day, starting this August. Right now, we’re looking for people who might be interested in running workshops or demonstrations. If you’re interested, or have any questions, or have a particular craft you’d like to see at the craft days, let us know. You can contact me either through the mailing list, or at maraley42 [at] gmail [dot] com.

Want to be inspired?

mg_8564-1_-2_-tiffadjust091 Labs will be presenting our fourth Ignite Galway event this Wednesday the 27th from 8pm at Kelly’s Bar, Bridge Street, GalwayIgnite is a global lightning presentation format where speakers have five minutes and twenty timed slides to enlighten and inspire the audience about their chosen topic. Our previous Ignite Galway events were great fun and this time around we’ll have live music from local band Cotton Ball Three to spice things up.

Our last Ignite Galway featured speakers talking about a wide range of topics, from life foods to political satire to social media-driven performance art, all of which can be watched online in this handy Youtube playlist. This time we have a great mix of talks, including travel, photography and zombies. Entry is €5 and the enlightenment is free!

If all this has gotten you thinking about giving a talk of your own we are still accepting submissions – all you need is to be passionate about your topic and have twenty slides to run in the background. In fact, here is an Ignite talk about giving Ignite talks! It’s a lot of fun and very rewarding, so if you’re interested get in touch by sending an email to padraic@091labs.com.
