SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Rutgers Master Gardeners want to help you gain knowledge of home brewing at a new EARTH Center workshop called: From Garden to Glass: Home Brewing with Your Garden Harvest. Featured will be vegetables and fruits you can use in the home brewing process, such as pumpkins and figs. The workshop takes place on Friday, January 24, at 6:30 PM, in the EARTH Center, located in Davidson’s Mill Pond Park 42 Riva Ave. South Brunswick, NJ.
Presenter Michael Klaser has been a home-brewer and amateur brew-master for 4 years. Also the editor of a home-brewing blog, Michael will lead the seminar and share his experience in this art and science. A brief overview of the different methods of making beer and discussion of the major ingredients will follow including; beer history, modern home-brewing procedures, and equipment considerations. Equipment and raw ingredients will be on display so attendees can see the tools firsthand. Resources will be available too for people to carry out their own research.
There will be plenty of time for Q&A, as new brewers often have many questions. No Walk-ins are permitted. Though this is a free workshop register at 732-398-5262 by January 22.
Even if you can’t visit the EARTH Center this season, you can still get great gardening tips by calling the Master Gardner Helpline at 732-398-5220.
