Beer Making Shop Handmade

7 March to 9:30 - 18:00

Beer is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages of mankind. Its manufacture follows a relatively simple and intuitive principle but at the same time very broad. Like this, It does not require much material, or the initial investment is important, nor is it difficult to quickly reach a satisfactory result. The basic ingredients are barley and / or malted wheat, a lot of water, hops and yeast. You can also add other cereals, or even fruit, herbs or plants and some natural additives. The whole process takes about a month, decomposing in the manufacture, fermentation and bottling.

In this workshop practice we will jointly produce a craft unfiltered beer in the bottle and subsequently refermented. As the process unfolds we will address the very concepts of alcoholic fermentation, the material and the steps to produce your own beer at home, the different styles and recipes, and of course taste some beers of my own production. The purpose of training is not to end the day knowing producing beer but to gain confidence and motivation to start producing alone.

Portuguese-French to live with one leg in Portugal for many years and with the two for quite, I learned how to make craft beer in Lisbon, on the Internet, in books, with Margaret brewing LOVE previously made training and Janas, about everything, in my kitchen called Interim. Brew three years ago with a home DIY process but increased amounts. Apart from the taste for drink, certainly developed by friends in Belgium the time the craft beer in Portugal still had no expression, at a certain point I started to organize home concerts and quickly I realized how hellish logistics buy industrial beers, refresh them to the maximum so that they drink without realizing the bottle bank and take the bodies the following day. In the middle of the vessel turned up a few bottles of LOVE and so discovered a new approach to the issue of autonomy and self-production, but it does not solve the issue of bottles. So for me the beer does not have to be a world center but life is much better if it is good.
