Hops and Herbs: Organic Gardening for Home Brewers
Sunday | March 16, 2014 | 3:00 pm — 6:00 pm
Location in Oakland, CA
In this class we’ll focus on how to grow, harvest, dry and store hops as well as other herbs that can be used in homebrewing. We’ll cover the basics of growing brewing herbs in containers or in the ground. We’ll talk about sun and shade, soil preparation, water and how to create a healthy ecosystem that requires neither pesticides nor fertilizers. We’ll get information on the best hops varieties for our area and creative options for supporting the vines as they grow. We’ll see strong healthy vines with hops ready for harvest and learn about the best timing and harvesting techniques. We’ll spend time with other herbs you can easily grow to enhance your brews. Local brewer Jim Pesevento will be on hand to share his experience brewing with fresh hops.
