CCS 545-01 Home Brewer's Boot Camp
The Home Brewer’s Boot Camp course is offered with the support of Baxter Brewing Company. Come learn step-by-step how to successfully brew at home! 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.
Friday’s class will meet at CMCC from 1pm to 4pm. Head Brewer for Baxter Brewing Company, 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 Company from 9am to 1pm. 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 several weeks later boot camp participants will be invited back to the Baxter taproom for a tasting.
Each participant will receive a copy of John Palmer’s “How To Brew: Everything You Need To Know To Brew Beer Right The First Time".
