Fairport Brewing to offer brewing classes

Have you ever been interested in brewing your own beer? Have you been brewing awhile, and now you’re ready to take your beer to the next level? Starting in January, Fairport Brewing will be offering brewing classes for beginner and intermediate brewers. Two classes will be offered, one covering extract brewing, and one covering all-grain brewing.

Extract Brewing Class 

This class will review extract brewing basics, create a recipe using in-house ingredients, then brew the beer. The material will focus on an overview of the brewing process from start to finish. The process will use or demonstrate tools and techniques available to the average home brewer. Tuition includes handouts, munchies, beer samples, and one growler and growler fill of the brewed beer (when the beer is ready and placed on tap.) Class duration is 3-4 hours on a weekday evening.

Class size: 5-8 people

Class cost: $59 per person

 

All-Grain Brewing Class

This class will review all-grain brewing basics, create a recipe using in-house ingredients, then brew the beer. The material will focus on the characteristics of malt and hops, and the mashing techniques required to convert the malted barley into fermentable sugar.  The process will use or demonstrate tools and techniques available to the average home brewer. Tuition includes handouts, munchies and lunch, beer samples, and one growler and growler fill of the brewed beer (when the beer is ready and placed on tap.) Class duration is 7-8 hours on a Saturday.

Class size: 5-8 people

Class cost: $149 per person
