The Sunshower Homebrewing Store will be offering its first home brewing class for beginners on Saturday Oct. 17th at 11AM in Holualoa. This class will be taught by a professional brewer from Kona Brewing Co. In this class you will learn how to brew a basic pale ale using our equipment and will get to keep three gallons (around 30 bottles) of your homemade beer.
You and one partner will brew 6 gallons (60 bottles) of a beer together. If you do not have a partner, don't worry, one will be assigned at class. After the first session the beer will stay with us as it ferments. About 2 weeks later you will schedule an appointment to come bottle your beer and take it home with you.
Cost is $100/person which covers the two classes, beer tasting and snacks, ingredients, bottle caps and optional flavoring additions. Bottles are not included and can be purchased or brought from home. Students will also receive 15% off their first purchase from the home brew store!
The First Session will cover factors that make quality beer, in depth discussion on brewing ingredients, brewing techniques, proper sanitation for home brewing, hands-on brewing for beginners and a beer tasting where the instructor will teach how to evaluate quality beer.
The second session will be scheduled individually and will cover bottling techniques, bottling your beer, capping your beer and beer storage. After the second session you will also be invited to the Kona Home Brewers meeting where you can share your beer and try other home brew.
