Keystone Homebrew offers three brewing classes, one for first-time brewers, one for intermediate-level brewers, and an all-grain brewing class (coming again soon). Each class will be limited to 20 participants. Please call us with payment information to secure your place.
Classes in Bethlehem are held at the Sun Inn (www.suninnbethlehem.org). Classes in Montgomeryville are held at our new store location at 435 Doylestown Road (Route 202).
Introduction to Brewing
This class for the first-time brewer explains the basic equipment needed to homebrew and how it works. Participants get hands-on experience brewing, bottling, and tasting homebrew.
The Next Step in Brewing
This class is geared toward the new brewer who has brewed some beer kits and is ready to learn the next step in homebrewing. In this class we concentrate on beer ingredients and how they influence the final flavors. We brew up one of our Keystone beer kits, which are extract based with specialty grains, fresh hops, and liquid yeast. We taste and discuss your homebrews and ours, so be sure to bring some if you would like some feedback.
This class is for intermediate to advanced level brewers who are either thinking of making the jump to all-grain brewing, or looking to improve their all-grain techniques. All-grain brewing will give you the ultimate level of flexibility and control over the characteristics and quality of your beer. The class generally runs for about 5 hours, with a live brewing demonstration and an in-depth discussion of the equipment, ingredients, theories and processes involved in brewing a batch of beer using base grains.
Classes tend to fill up quickly, so sign up early.
