Home Brew Class

24 Jul

About a year ago while out for lunch I drove by the Culver City Home Brewing Supply, I made a mental note of it as I knew that eventually I would like to start home brewing.  Since then, I have been doing lots of beer drinking, but also done some reading on the subject of home brewing.  Months back I asked Steve to send me some links on home brewing as he’s one of the few people I know that home brews.  Having an 11 month old little girl means we spend lots of time at home and also because of the summer heat, this prompted me to learn how to home brew and I ended up signing up for a class at Culver City Home Brewing Supply. The class turned out to be very informative and seeing someone go through the steps made me realize it wasn’t a difficult process. I’m ready to jump into this thing feet first, I’ll be buying a kit in the next few days and I’ll have to decide what to brew for my first beer batch.  I’m looking forward to debuting the beer and making pizzas for the invites. During the class we got a chance to sample of the beer that’s been brewed during previous classes. Below you will see pictures I took during the class.

    Oh man! I want to do this so bad! You do it first and then you can teach me!

    I found a method for making wine in your kitchen sink. I’ll try that and then we can compare notes.

      I need to order my kit and decide on what to brew first, but I think I need brakes and it’s putting the brakes on this whole home brew thing. We’ll have a brew day soon.

        I found a Mr. Beer kit for $12 at the Sears clearance store. I think I’ll start it this weekend.

        I still haven’t picked mine up. The issue is the house temperature, need to figure out where to leave it to ferment at the right temperature. What was included in the kit? Not bad for $12.
