Beer Brewing Level 2

Are you ready to step up your home brewing game from Extract to All Grain? Then this class is for you. All Grain brewing is how the professional brewers make beer. It is the purest form of brewing beer and lets you influence your end-product the absolute most. You are in complete control of your beer—color and aroma; flavor and mouthfeel; classic style to wild and crazy. This is brewing beer “from scratch.” And, it is actually the least expensive way to produce beer (minus the equipment).
