Weekly Demonstrations

All our Saturday brewing presentations are relaxed, welcoming and free of charge. They start at 9:00am and finish sometime between midday and 1:00pm.

23rd June Dan and Geoff Brew Black and Tan: Black

In the world's first time-staggered, BIAB-only Collaborative All-Grain Brewing Demo, Dan and Geoff will be brewing (probably) a dry Irish stout and (maybe) an English Pale Ale on their respective BIAB systems for presentation to the Grain & Grape Collective at a subsequent date.

In this session, Dan will be displaying the pure and simple beauty of an electric Brew In A Bag system and how it is easily pressed into service to make Black.

Turn up at 9:00am. Leave before 1:00pm. Embrace the darkness.

SystemWars Beer Tasting, Round A

This year's SystemWars was so huge, we had to split the tasting over TWO events. There's still only a keg of each available, though...

30th June Dan and Geoff Brew Black and Tan: Tan

In the world's first time-staggered, BIAB-only Collaborative All-Grain Brewing Demo, Dan and Geoff will be brewing (probably) a dry Irish stout and (maybe) an English Pale Ale on their respective BIAB systems for presentation to the Grain & Grape Collective at a subsequent date.

In this session, Geoff will be harnessing the awesome, brutish power of a gas-fired BIAB system to quickly and efficiently produce an indoor Tan.

Turn up at 9:00am. Leave before 1:00pm. NB: Swimwear is forbidden in the brewing area.

7th July Ben's Style School: California Common/Steam beer

 
 
 
 

The story goes that steam beer got it's name from the steam rising up from the cooling vessels on the rooftops of the San Francisco breweries who made it back in the 1800s. How close the current examples of the style are to those Victorian era Gold rush thirst quenchers is up for debate but the modern style was definitely born out of a reverence for those old techniques, born of necessity at a time without refrigeration. At this demo, Ben will be looking at the history of the style, both classical and modern, and the lineage that has carried through to current times, resulting in the classic Anchor Steam beer and it's faithful homebrewed homages. We will be brewing an attempt at the style on the robobrew whilst talking about the basics of brewing from grain, and looking at the specifics of how to go about crafting this sort of beer. As always, this is a free demo with no bookings required. Come along from around 9am and be prepared to taste some beers and learn some things.
