Homebrewing @ 091 Labs: Workshops Starting Oct 12th


 

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).

Attendees will pick what type of type of brew you want to make for the classes.

Galway Home Brewers Club meeting – Wednesday, August 29


The Galway Home Brewers Club will be having their monthly meeting for the second time in 091 Labs on Wednesday, August 29 at 7pm. Last month’s meet up was a big success, with home brewers flocking from all over Galway to discuss the art of brewing. On display were some wonderful homemade ales, lagers, stouts, pilseners, ciders, wines and meads. Needless to say, we sampled each others’ wares.

The Galway Home Brewers Club is open to everyone interested in brewing, whether you’ve been doing it as long as you can remember or if you’re just curious and looking to start out. The members can offer you some great advice and explain where to begin.
