Brewing Beer for Beginners (Torquay)

This course is designed for anyone who is interested in real ale or craft beer and either wants to widen their knowledge of beer or to learn how to brew beer themselves at home.

We will look at the characteristics of different beers from around the world and how they are produced, understand the elements and processes that go into producing a good beer, broaden our palates and discuss what makes a great beer.

Trainee brewers will learn what equipment and ingredients are needed to brew beer and the processes involved in mashing, boiling and fermentation. We will also look at how and why different beer styles developed around the world and what the local variations really are.

We will also look at how to taste beer and what different flavour profiles we would expect to get from different ingredients and processes, which in turn will help us to put together some amazing beer recipes of our own.

I am qualified in cake decorating and flour confectionery and have been teaching adults in and around Devon for 36 years. As a master baker I am always eager to inspire people in this fascinating craft.I have a wealth of experience and knowledge including; how to make royal icing, sugar flowers, marzipan, chocolate and also modelling and sugarpaste work. I love to revive techniques I learnt as an apprentice baker & confectioner. Many students who attended my course have now opened their own cake businesses, however my main focus is that my classes are fun for everyone where learning new skills.Margaret Brooking
