Brew It Yourself: Homebrew Beer with The Founder of Mercurius Brewing

San Francisco, CA , United States

About Your Host

I'm Jason and I'm psyched to teach you to make beer. I've been brewing since 2005. I started out as a homebrewer, then made the leap to the brewing industry. I was the Head Brewer at the Devil's Canyon Brewing Company for 4 years, and in that time brewed over a million pints of beer. I'm starting my own brewery currently called Mercurius Brewing. I've been teaching brewing for over 7 years and have taught over 1000 people how to brew. Teaching people to make great beer is my favorite thing in life; I'm looking forward to sharing the class with you!

What we'll do

Learn to Homebrew Beer Have you ever tasted a beer and said, I wonder how that's made? Take our Brew It Yourself: Beer Making at Home class and you’ll learn everything you need to know to make great beer at home. You’ll get your hands dirty on one of our brewing rigs, and after this two part class you’ll walk away with at least a 6-pack of bomber bottles of beer YOU MADE! You and a couple of partners will brew a 5 gallon batch of beer in the first class. Then a week or two later you’ll come back and get to taste and bottle your beer. Your instructor, Jason Beck, has brewed over a million pints of beer, and loves to share the joy of brewing with students. During the class, you’ll munch malts and huff hops, learning how to use them to achieve the flavor you want. You’ll become best friends with yeast, and fall in love with sanitizer. We’ll have a tasting of many different styles of beer to get you acquainted with the many possibilities of brewing. You’ll learn great detail about the production process in a commercial brewery, and also learn about the science behind the art. You’ll get the low down on what the best equipment is for your home brewery. Everything will help you gain the knowledge you need to make a successful, flavorful batch of beer at home.
