Beer brewing short course

Master beer brewer Erich Massberg is teaching home brewers the art of creating genuine, pure beer for an exciting new short course at South Regional TAFE.

Mr Massberg has a rich history and passion in beer brewing, originating in his homeland Germany and developed over many years brewing traditional, quality beer.

South Regional TAFE has secured Mr Massberg’s expertise to teach others the art of home brewing through a one-day course in full-grain brewing – Brew your own Beer.

The course, to be run at the Bunbury campus, gives anyone interested in brewing beer the chance to learn from an industry professional and find out how to make a high-quality product.

Upon finishing this course, students will have the tools to start brewing their own classic beers.

Mr Massberg was the founder of one of the first micro-breweries in Western Australia, the successful Duckstein Micro-Brewery and Restaurant in the Swan Valley. He later set about developing a home brewery that enables anyone to enjoy the craft of traditional, authentic beer brewing.

Mr Massberg believes that to make something high quality and enjoyable, it needs to be done in the right way with the right equipment and the right ingredients.

“Watching a video online to learn something isn’t the same as having someone there with you to teach you the right brewing techniques,” Mr Massberg said.

He believes that brewing beer is a craft as well as an excellent pursuit.

“Over time, this is a hobby that will not only pay for itself, but become a passion,” he said.

The course is scheduled for Saturday February 24 from 9am to 4pm.

Class sizes will be limited to enable hands-on involvement in the actual beer brewing process.

Anyone interested in doing this one-day, hands-on course can express their interest now by Freecall 1800 621 445 or calling 9780 7070.

This course is non-accredited.
