You can brew that! Attendees learned how to make your own beer from Chris Cohen, founder of the San Francisco Homebrewers Guild, in this introductory workshop cohosted by Urban Kitchen SF and CUESA. The class will covered brewing basics, including proper sanitation practices, adding malt extract, pitching yeast, and finally bottling beer. Participants tried samples of different styles of beer, as well as the beer at various stages. A representative from San Francisco Brewcraft also discussed buying ingredients and equipment. Armed with this knowledge participants each took home a $40 gift certificate to San Francisco Brewcraft and a coupon for 10% off beer-making supplies, so they could start brewing at home.
