John Palmer at Bitter & Esters – Saturday, May 3rd

Saturday, May 3rd – 1pm-4pm

We at Bitter & Esters are very excited (and humbled) to host noted homebrewing guru and author John Palmer (How to Brew, Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers) for a whirlwind tour of New York City’s creative homebrewing scene and a celebration of National Homebrew Day, Saturday May 3rd 2014.

On Saturday, May 3rd, John will be signing copies of his book, Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers and will be talking with homebrewers from 1pm-4pm at our shop. We’ll be brewing a 15 gallon batch of beer of Mr. Palmer’s choosing on our brew on premises system for Big Brew Day. Fans are encouraged to bring their well-worn copy of How to Brew for Mr. Palmer to sign!

Are you ready to step into all-grain brewing but not sure where to start? This is an advanced class for the intermediate or experienced extract brewer. We’ll take an in depth look at the mashing process and different styles of mashing/lautering & sparging along with the enzymatic and chemical pathways involved. Additionally, we’ll cover water chemistry, malt diastatic power, and the basic trouble shooting techniques for avoiding/fixing a stuck lauder.

The class will run 2 hours and we will undertake a single infusion batch sparge, but participants are welcome to join us for the boil.
