3720. Fun Fermentations: Beer, Cider and More
Since Neolithic times people have transformed grains, water and yeast into beverages with increased vitamin and nutritional value. These products also had a pleasant side-effect: a feeling of euphoria that quickly made them the drink of choice for thousands of years. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in making home-brewed beverages, and an increasing sophistication in the choices available to the consumer. At this panel you will learn about the history and culture of homebrewing, and how you can make it in your own home or garage.
