Could you take a moment to reflect and think about why you want to do this course? In your brewing what are your main problems or concerns? What are you trying to accomplish? What is your level of knowledge or experience you have about brewing?
Once you have written them down, then, if you wish, send the answers to me and I will endeavour to make sure you get a solid reply to them. In any case bring them with you to the course and we will discuss them there.
