Make & Drink Fruit Wine (and beer!)

  • Aug 24, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Do you have a delicious fruit harvest that needs preserving? Do you want to learn how to make wine from your own backyard? Come join us for a potluck and beginner's home brewing lesson.

We'll have blackberry and peach wines available for sampling, a putluck pitcher of sangria, some of our home-brewed beer, and some nibbles.

What we'll do:

We'll show you how to brew wine from foraged blackberries, and then we'll bottle another batch from a carboy (a large bottle that the wine is fermented and aged in). We will answer all of your questions about home brewing, and will provide a recipe for your own batch.

Please be advised that we're located in Surrey, so you may wish to carpool.

When:
Weekend in late August

What should I bring:
Your favorite bottle wine, some fruit for the sangria, some food to share.

 

PS: There will be people from the Home Brewers Meetup as well http://www.meetup.com/lowermainlandhomebrewers/

    I have a friend with 20+ lbs of plums from their tree that are perfect for making wine if anyone one wants them. Let me know I and will put you in touch.

    What day is the best of everyone? I was thinking August 17, 18, 24 or 25 because then we would have lots of time to pick blackberries. What day works to best?
