Homebrewing: Making wine and beer at home

Homebrewing: Making wine and beer at home

If you are curious about homebrewing, and maybe overwhelmed or intimidated by the equipment or setup, please come to my beginner’s “Where’s The Skills?” session.  I will have my equipment there and will walk thru the processes of making wine from kits, making cider from the apples from my tree, and making beer from grain.

I will have samples of my homemade wine, cider and beer.

Please RSVP so I have an idea of how many people to expect.
