People have been brewing beer for thousands of years and the basic process has remained much the same. Mike Andersen, a PebbleCreek resident, will share his knowledge and enthusiasm for his home brewing hobby at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
Beer consists of four main ingredients: malt, hops, yeast and water. Learn what qualities and characteristics each of
these ingredients adds to the finished beer and how to manage and experiment with new ingredients. Learn what equipment you will need to begin enjoying this hobby. Mike will review the steps in the brewing process and show you how he has set up his ‘brewery.’
Once you get started, one of the fun things you get to do is name your beer. John’s Pale Ale or Harris Porter or be creative and come up with something like Hopular Mechanics. You make beer for one reason: because it’s fun. That you also get beer out of it is just a delicious bonus. Ask Mike how and why he began his hobby!
