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.

 

23rd March Geoff and Dan Brewin' Broon - Part One: Dan Brews Old Ale (In A Bag)

Newcastle Brown, now brewed in the Netherlands, but previously in Newcastle, Gateshead and Tadcaster is an English working man's beer from way back, but also a bit trendy at times on the international scene.

Traditionally, Newcastle Brown Ale was the result of two different beers blended after fermentation, making it somewhat unusual in its manufacture and an obvious target for Geoff and Dan to brew in yet another of their time-shifted BIAB demonstrative collaborations. Or should that be "collaborative demonstrations"?

Join Dan as he brews an Old Ale on his all-electric BIAB system and explores all the wonders of All-Grain brewing. Find out about Old Ales, Brewing and Stuff!

Then(!) Come along and see Geoff crank out an Amber Ale on his gas-fired BIAB system.

The two beers will be fermented, blended and eventually presented for tasting on our Wall Of Beer.

Dan Does Old Ale on 23March, from 9:00am onwards in the G&G Brewing Area.
Geoff Attempts Amber on 30March. Same time, same place.

6April Ben’s Style School: Belgian Blonde

The Random Beer Style Generator has spoken, and Ben must obey so as not to anger the gods of chaos and chance. At his next Style School instalment, he will be brewing a Belgian Blonde ale.
Beers like Leffe have come to characterize this malty sweet, subtley perfumed style of quaffable ale. In this demonstration, Ben will be looking at what makes a Belgian Blonde. We will be going over the official BJCP style guidelines and looking at the key points to hone in on when developing a recipe. We will also look at the history of the style and how it came to be.

This will be in the context of a lesson in how to brew beer using an all grain method. If you have never brewed before, this will be a great demo to come along to. If you are quite an accomplished brewer, but are interested in the style and recipe design aspects of Belgian Blondes, this will also be a great demo to come along to.

Demo starts at 9am and runs till about 12:30, no fees or bookings required, just come along with some brain space ready to be filled with knowledge.
