Craft Beer 201: Home Brew Challenge
Second course in the Brew U series
Following up our popular Craft Beer 101 class, this next Brew U series will let you get "hands-on" with the craft brewing process and compete with other teams to develop the best Brew U beer! The series begins with a full brewing demonstration at Full Circle, followed by a refresher on ingredients and processes. Under the guidance and supervision of Full Circle Brewing's staff, your team will develop a custom recipe and brew your own beer using home brewing equipment. (Bring your own team, or we'll set you up with one in class.) At the culmination of the course, each team's brew will be evaluated by a BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) judge to determine the best recipe, which will then be produced by Full Circle Brewing. There is a $20 materials fee for recipe ingredients which is payable at the first class meeting. Class meets at Fresno State's Downtown Center and Full Circle Brewing Co. Note: February 14, 28, and March 7 are "check-in" meetings (approximately 15-20 minutes each) at Full Circle during which you will be evaluating the progress of your team's beer.
Dates, Times and Locations: Wednesdays, January 31, February 7, 14, 21, & 28, 2018, 6 pm - 7:30 pm (at Downtown Center and Full Circle Brewing Co.) and Saturdays, January 27 and February 10, 9 am - 12 pm (at Full Circle Brewing Co.)
