This course is a must for the home brewer ready to take the next step towards starting there own micro brewery or if you are serious about making the best beer from home. What ever your level of experience in home brewing from kit brewing to the more serious all grain brewers this course is for you. Vince is an open book with 30+ years of commercial brewing experience. His experience in all aspects of brewing is explained in a way that is easy to understand and in a way that makes sense for the seasoned brewer or beginner. The practical brewing day really brings the whole course together. Seeing is believing. Great job Vince. Keep spreading the good word :)
