|Clark Williams of Frog Level Brewing will teach a home brewing class for beginners starting Aug. 5 at Southwestern Community College.|
The class itself went so well that Mr. Williams agreed to serve as the instructor for another. The next set of beginners’ classes starts on Aug. 5 and runs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. each Tuesday through Aug. 26.
“I was very pleased with the beer from that first class,” said Williams, a Haywood County resident who owns and operates Frog Level Brewing in Waynesville. “We made three batches of a pale ale, each with different ingredients. The carbonation was great, and the beers were all really good.
“I had a blast teaching other people how to brew, and I think they were a little surprised that it’s not as hard as it seems,” Williams added. “Once you start learning the process, there aren’t a lot of hugely scientific equations involved.”
This time around, Williams plans to help students brew three different types of beers, including a Mexican-style cerveza and a dark beer. Class members will help determine the third type of beer they’ll brew.
Cost for enrollment in the new class will be $99.
