Join author and brewmaster, Colin Kaminski, for a 2 hour discussion on the main ingredient in beer, water! Students will learn how to interpret water reports, manipulate water profiles, and other water chemistry concepts which can be used to make award winning home brews.
About the instructor:
Colin Kaminski, co-author of Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers (Brewers Publications, 2013), discovered brewing while briefly dating a woman with a degree in fermentation science from UC Davis. Using one of his first three batches of homebrew, Kaminski applied and was hired at Beer, Beer and More Beer as a product designer. While there, he designed more than 180 products including their Peltier cooled conical fermenter.
In 2003, he became the master brewer at Downtown Joe’s Brewery where he brewed more than 1400 7bbl batches in his fifteen years as the head of a one-man department. Colin has written on a variety of topics including lutherie, holography, solar astronomy and beer. He was awarded the Beer Writers Guild Feature of the Year Award for his Brew Your Own article “Bring on the Heat”.
