“Great course! As it turns out most of the beers I brew would fall into this category! I am going to try the Saison recipe though. Cheers”

About This Course

This course is complete with 4 recipes for a session IPA, stout, saison, and mead.

Session beers aren't just a question of reducing the gravity (although that's one way to go, and we will be): it's a question of generating a lot of flavor from hops and finding light ways to balance those flavors. In this course, Josh Weikert takes you through the challenges and solutions to brewing lower ABV beers. Josh covers:

  • Recipe considerations
  • Scaling down your existing recipes
  • Hopping 
  • Yeast selection
  • Water chemisty
  • Mash and boil considerations
  • and much more
