BeerLab Home Brew Supplies

BeerLab's BeerSchool runs Partial Mash (Beginner) classes. Classes are presented by brewing legend Nick Birkby (the same legend that taught Lynnae Endersby - founder of BeerLab how to make amazing beer many years back)
All our classes are hands-on, with students making their very own batches of beer that they take home at the end of the session to ferment and bottle. We're passionate about making amazing beer and want to get the world brewing.
 


Classes

Partial Mash (Beginner)

Designed specifically for new brewers or those who want to venture beyond kit-brewing and start experimenting with speciality grains and hops. We start out with some theory and then move into the lab to begin brewing. Each team of students make their own batch of beer which they take home. In addition we'll teach you about bottling with a priming solution. Typical class duration is 4.5 - 5 hours

Location

Classes are held out our brand new BeerSchool at our shop premises in Ndabeni. Our brewing kitchen is able to accommodate a maximum of 8 students and there is a dedicated lecture room upstairs. Although our classes are smaller we are able to provide students with more personal and hands on experience than ever. 

Equipment

We have 4 stations, each designed for 2 students each.
Each student takes between 10 and 9 Liters of beer home to ferment and bottle.

What do you need?

You will need to bring along your own fermenter to take your beer home in. A fermenter can also be purchased at our shop on the day of the course (See our website under 'fermenters'. To bottle your beer a capping machine and hydrometer combo is available to rent in store if you do not own one (this is only needed two weeks after fermentation)

Each station has: 
  • 25 Liter and 21 Liter pot.
  • 2 gas burners
  • Hydrometer and testing jar
  • Thermometer
  • 7 meter immersion chiller
  • Sink with cold water supply
  • Large funnel
  • Large double mesh strainer
  • Grain bucket
  • Funnels, hoses, connectors etc.
  • Insulation blankets and towels
  • Spoons, cloths, pot holders, timers, various containers.
  • And lots lots more, basically we have everything you could possibly want or need to make amazing beer. If you're not sure about something feel free to ask.

In additionally the students have access to washing up facilities, tea, coffee and a few craft beers to enjoy while brewing (Did we mention our beer on tap  in store?)

Making beer is a social experience. We'll make up teams of 2 on the day, but feel free to book with your friends upfront.
