N.B. (This course is recommended for those with a good grasp of the fundamentals of brewing at home, and those wanting to enter or just entered the microbrewing industry.

Learn about the 7 secrets to making great, consistent beer 

This is an intense bootcamp style course and will turn you from an ordinary brewer to an exceptional one, even if you have been brewing for some time. It is not for those wanting casual information on starting to brew.

Dispel the 13 myths that abound in homebrewing and learn how to put all the pieces together to get the right brewing picture. 

By doing this course you will gain the 4 steps to becoming competent in brewing great beer by;

  • becoming confident in brewing at home and taking the next step to becoming a microbrewer or becoming a better microbrewer
  • having one of those rare Ah Ha moments where the penny drops and understanding the jigsaw of brewing
  • appreciating the real effect of what and how to store and use raw materials properly
  • understanding why a well designed brewery is soooo.. important to consistent quality
The 3 day courses covers 14 major areas in brewing;
  • Malts, Hops, yeast, and water. How they can affect flavour
  • How to choose your yeast, and the flavours they impart
  • The design of different styles of beer (actual calculation of a recipe from scratch)
  • The right conditions of mashing. Do we need to know why?
  • Ale brewing versus lager brewing
  • Practical brewing using a modern microbrewing plant (500L).
  • Why filter beer and we show you how (Demonstration)
  • Fermentation principles and various problems that can arise (can you do something about them?)
  • Filtration and "stabilisation" of beer
  • Carbonation and Kegging (Demonstration)
  • Analyses of beer- why bother?
  • Learn how to taste beer and find faults and how to rectify them
  • Learn why most homebrewers don't have what it takes to be successful in Craft brewing but how you can be.
  • Silver Lining VIP group enrollment (for 2 or more students only)
    each student receives the following bonuses;
    1. Entitlement to 5% referral discount for setting up group (all the group receives this)
    2. Have a brewer free; advice 1 hour after the course on homebrewing ($170)
  • Could you take a moment to reflect and think about why you want to do this course? In your brewing what are your main problems or concerns? What are you trying to accomplish? What is your level of knowledge or experience  you have about brewing? 
  • Once you have written them down, then, if you wish, send the answers to me and I will endeavour to make sure you get a solid reply to them. In any case bring them with you to the course and we will discuss them there.

Great course what can I say, its jam packed and covers a vast amount of content in 4 days. The hands on brew day was great and the brewer was happy to share as most craft brewers seem to be. Vince has a lifetime of knowledge and experience and is now sharing that with us. Best course I have done was well worth it.

Fantastic course. Vince delivers an easy approach to understanding the methods behind brewing. Great for beginners or like me have been brewing for over 10 years and did benefit immensely from the course.

This course is fantastic value for money. The content was immensely detailed and was well laid out and presented. The atmosphere was very friendly. If I was giving it a mark out of ten, it would be 11, yeah that good!! Keith
