Beer School - Mixed Culture and Sour Beers

Sep 21 2019 09:30 - 16:00

Birmingham Brewing Company, Unit 15, B30 2PF Birmingham

Introduction to Brewing

Our beer school is a full day course led by our MSc Qualified Master Brewer, which will involve a combination of talks on the science and technique of brewing, as well as a guided brew on our 100L pilot kit. The day will begin at around 9am and finish around 4pm and lunch is included.

This is a course for the proper beer geeks! Here we’ll look at sour beers, and what makes them sour, funky, and exciting. We’ll be delving into the history, geography, and microbiology of one of the fastest growing (yet also oldest) styles of brewing beer. If you’re looking for advice on how to get that lactic tang or farmhouse funk, then join us! Throughout the day we’ll look into brewing bacteria, wild yeast strains, kettle souring, Belgian-style brewing, and the flavours that experimental brewing can give you
