Up to 3 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

I will guide a small group of guests through the fundamentals of beer and cider making.

Each guest will receive a written sheet on the step by step process. From sanitation to the bottling of the beer.

Each guest will have the opportunity to be as hands on in the process as they like. If they prefer to observe and learn I can take over the hands on element. If they prefer to be hands on then I can personally guide them to successfully make their brew.

I will get all the ingredients necessary prior to the event but include a list of everything I bought and where they can purchase it. I will also include a list of equipment which should mostly be found around the house.

The idea is to demonstrate that it's possible to create a tasty brew at home with no need to spend hundreds of dollars on equipment. I also found that there is a lot of jargon surrounding the industry so I would like to simplify the process and cover the basics so people can leave confident they can brew at home.

Meet your host, James

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
I'm a winemaker by trade, but I make home brew beer and cider as a hobby. I would like to share my knowledge and passion for fermentation and the alcohol making process by hosting classes using equipment that can be found in almost every home. My goal is to show people how simple it can be to make their very own home brew and teach the basics of sanitation, fermentation and carbonation.

Due to limited space in my home I will be hosting only very small groups which will also allow an excellent opportunity for a personal and hands on experience.
