Try Your Hand at Home Brewing: A Unique Fundraiser at Greenwich Library on May 30

| No Comments
Please join Greenwich Library and Maltose Express for a Home Brewing Fundraiser to benefit Greenwich Library programs on Friday, May 30 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Learn about beer home brewing from start to finish, while the experts from Maltose Express brew a batch of beer right in front of you. Touch and smell the ingredients, including hops, grain and malt, and taste samples of home brewed beer. 

This entertaining 'how to' program includes information on brewing water, grain, malt extracts, hops and brewing equipment and is great for new brewers or anyone who has questions about the brewing process. If there is a style of beer you would like to make, Maltose Express has a recipe for you to brew a great tasting beer in your own home. 

The cost is $50 per person, pizza and refreshments included. Seating in the Meeting Room is limited and attendees must be 21 or older. All proceeds go to support Greenwich Library programs and services.

They offer home brewing classes and give grain brewing demos throughout the year. They have gathered more that 450 clone and original recipes from around the world starting with two books of clone recipes, "Clone Brews" and "Beer Captured". Between them, these books contain 350 recipes from light Lagers to Barleywines, from Witbiers to the hoppiest of Imperial IPA's. Winemaking supplies, equipment and kits are also available. There are always two beers and wines on tap for visitors to sample.
