Vine Park Brewing

Beer Brewing

 


Step 1 – Choose Your Beer

Step 1Once you’ve picked out your brew from over 50 choices, one of our knowledgeable Brew Coaches will help get you started explaining the ingredients and equipment.

Step 2 – Add Malted Barley Extracts

Step 2The first ingredient you’ll measure and add is malted barley extracts. You’ll add at least two pitchers of extract to the kettle.

Step 3 – Add Hops

Step 3The second main ingredient you’ll measure and add is hops. Hops provide the spice of the beer to even out the sweetness from the malt extracts.

Step 4 – The Boil

Step 4Once your malt extracts and hops have been measured and added, your brew will boil for about an hour. Brewers will have the opportunity to use that time for “research and development” across the street with our good friends at Bennett’s Chop and Railhouse.

Step 5 – Add Yeast

Step 5After the one hour boil and all other ingredients have been added, we’ll pump the brew out into a fermenter and chill it down. Once that’s done, Brewers will add their yeast into the fermenter to let those yeast do their thing. Once you’ve added your yeast, your brewing day is done! You’re back on break for 2 weeks.

Step 6 – Fermentation Time

Step 6During those two weeks, we will monitor and care for your beer while it ferments and cold ages.

Step 7 – Prepare for Bottling

Step 7After those two weeks, you’ll be back to bottle your brew. Many people order a pizza or bring in chips and dips or anything else you’d like.

Step 8 – Bottling

Step 8Your brew will be set up on one of our bottling stations where you will fill, cap, and sample your beer.

Step 9 – Sampling

Step 9Did we mention sample? On bottling day your beer is cold, carbonated, and ready to sample!

Step 10 – Take Your Beer Home

Step 10Finally, (and maybe best of all) Vine Park staff will take care of all the clean-up! You get to do all the fun stuff, while we take care of the details, work, and clean up!
