Weekly Demonstrations

Hosted by experienced brewers with a diverse range of backgrounds, our Saturday brewing presentations are relaxed, welcoming and free of charge. They start at 9:00am and finish sometime between midday and 1:00pm.

16th February Dan Democratises His One Recipe To Rule Them All

Dan has created the One Recipe To Rule Them All; a predictable and repeatable brew, that with zero to minimal change to the recipe or the brewing process, can be used to make everything from a Pale Lager to an ESB; even an IPA. With enough stability in the brewing process for you to learn the lessons, you need to learn; and enough variety in the finished product for you to stay excited and motivated while you develop your skills; ORTRTA will take you through your first 20 brews and beyond and make you a better brewer faster.

In this demo, Dan will take this recipe and Let The Crowd Decide what to brew. Turn up on the day and be heard, or state your case on the Facebooks, on what sort of beer to make from Dan's all-powerful but benevolent master recipe. Starting with the grain, Dan will take the first step towards brewing an as-yet-unknown brew and weigh and crush the grains as part of a highly-interactive brewing session.

On top of all this, Dan will be demonstrating one of the world's most accessible All-Grain brewing methods - electric Brew In A Bag and No Chill, sharing his experience and answering All Your Questions.

Be sure to turn up early to this brewing session to get maximum value. Starts at 9:00am and finishes at the end.

Warning: Wine-Making Demo Imminent

It's not often that John plays the Boss Card but he did recentlly when he told us to schedule a wine-making demonstration. We're happy to comply, but the grapes refuse to cooperate and will be ready when they are ready. So, some time in the coming weeks, Ben will be making some wine with the Grain and Grape Hire Equipment and some Shiraz grapes from Heathcote. Whenever that happens, we will swap the wine making demo with whichever brewing demo was scheduled for that day. Be sure to check this page to stay in the loop.
