Home Brewer's Boot Camp Offered
Registration Deadline: March 28
Workshop: Friday & Saturday, April 4th and 5th.
In collaboration with the Baxter Brewing Company, the Corporate and Community Services Department at Central Maine Community College (CMCC) is offering a “Home Brewer’s Boot Camp.” Whether you’re brand new to home brewing, or an experienced hobbyist, this two-day workshop is a perfect opportunity to get some insightful guidance into the craft. The class will meet Friday and Saturday, April 4-5.
The Friday class will meet at CMCC from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Baxter Brewing Company Head Brewer Ryan O’Doherty will discuss the theories, methods, tools and ingredients necessary for a successful and enjoyable home brewing experience. A brief history of the beer industry and the beverage itself will also be covered.
On Saturday the class will meet at Baxter Brewing from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. There will be an explanation and demonstration of home brewing processes, a tour of the brewery and a discussion of the differences with large scale operations. A “class batch” will be created during this session and participants will be invited back to the taproom several weeks later for a tasting.
The cost of the course is $89.00 and covers all materials and a copy of John Palmer’s “How To Brew: Everything You Need To Know To Brew Beer Right The First Time.” For more information or to register, please contact Corporate & Community Services at 207-755-5280, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.cmcc.edu/ccs.
