    Very informative and well managed course
    Review by Adrianon 20/07/2015
    I am about to take the step into AG brewing and whilst I have my fair share of reading about it I wanted the confidence of seeing it done first hand rather than watch it via youtube. I am very glad I attended this course. Greg is open and fielded all the questions posed to him with ease. He genuinely knows his stuff and no questions is too stupid to ask. Two batches of beer were made; one with basic equipment and one with a more advanced system. Lunch was provided (also very good) and tastings of beer produced on the previous course given freely. It is a shame I had to drive a few hours home but the end product was very good.

    I received some enlightening answers to the questions I wanted to ask and I think all who attended went home with a better level of knowledge than when they arrived.

    If you are curious about AG brewing then please sign up for one of these. You will walk away with genuine, practical know-how and an increase in confidence.

    Now I just need to get the kit......

    A Great Introduction to AG Brewing
    Review by Richardon 14/06/2015
    As every one else has said, a great day, educational and informative while being informal. Greg and Ben know their stuff and communicate in a relaxed entertaining manner. I came away with a lighter bank balance but ready to start my first AG brew next weekend. If anyone is thinking of moving to AG and wants some first hand advice, rather than books, forums or you tube then this is the place to come.

    Invaluable course for anyone with an eye on AG brewing
    Review by Jameson 19/05/2015
    I have spent just spent a thoroughly enjoyable and informative Saturday with Greg and Ben and 16 other like-minded brewing enthusiasts Greg and Ben provide a very well presented but informal and friendly course on AG brewing, demonstrating the process with two different kit set-ups. Of course everyone wanted a Braumeister by the end of the course but I'll have to save up for it! The beer that was brewed from the previous course was served throughout the afternoon and it tasted far better than anything I drank in Salisbury that evening! The course has really inspired me to go back to my brew shed and re-think some of my methods as I have now tasted what can be achieved with home-brew equipment.

    Fantastic!
    Review by Elwynon 18/05/2015
    One day with Greg and Ben answered all my questions about getting into AG. This was done on their premises and it was great to be in the place where the business is located - you can build your shopping list during the day and buy it all at the end as you'll be keen to get going on your next brew once the day is over! Greg and Ben talked us through two different AG methods and there was ample chance to ask all my questions. The other attendees' experience ranged from newbie (done a couple of extract kits) to those wanting to scale up and start micro breweries. There was much to learn from talking with other attendees as well as Greg and Ben. It was very relaxed and informal, the lunch was great and drinking the last course's brews was a useful talking point that added to the atmosphere of the day. I learned lots and met some great people too. A great day out for brew-heads everywhere.

    Well worth it
    Review by Vestan Panseon 10/03/2015
    Had a really good day with Greg and Ben demonstrating and discussing the brewing. Good crowd of people from great range of experiences (thought I'd be least experienced with only 2 all-grains to date, but wasn't!). Some excellent tips passed on and great advice for advanced techniques like liquor treatment. Greg answered all questions and wasn't embarrasing to ask. Ploughmans was fantastic (proper man-sized and yummy!!) and the beer from last months brew was great, maybe more rye though?! Handout was very handy and saved scribbling notes. Chance to explore the aladdin's cave after and buy stuff for my next brew so could get started straight away. Really is a course for everyone of any experience I feel.

    One word of advice, if you stay in the Premier Inn, don't follow the Sat-Nav's fastest route there as it will take you through a huge ford!!

    If you're slightly unsure about AG brewing this is the course for you !
    Review by Ian Downhamon 10/03/2015
    Good day, well structured course, great presenters (Greg and Ben - both top blokes), really nice Ploughmans lunch (thanks Mrs. Greg and helpers) and beer on tap. What else could you want ?
    Always nice to get a more expert opinion on thing you think you know. Now armed with the confidence to try three vessel AG brewing rather than BIAB.
    Would recommend to anyone from total novice to intermediate/advanced homebrewers.

    Brilliant learning experience
    Review by Darryll Defoeon 09/02/2015
    This was a really fun and informative day. Greg and Ben were very welcoming and funny guys and the detail in which the various elements of brewing were covered were both helpful from a beginners perspective and informative for someone who has done a few all grain brews previous. The chance to discuss with more experienced people the elements of water treatment, grains, hops and yeast as well as seeing the 2 brewing setups in action (along with their fermentation temperature control setup) left me with a lot of good ideas for my future brews. Top this off with a really nice group of people all interested in beer, a great lunch and some really tasty homebrew (the vanilla porter was fantastic) and I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone looking at all grain homebrewing.

    A great day's brewing, drinking and having the craic. Highly recommended!
    Review by John Gaviganon 05/02/2015
    I spent an extremely enjoyable day on this course. Picked up some great tips, met some great like minded folk and came away knowing more than when I got there. Always a preferred outcome I think you will all agree.
    On the day the guys ran two brews in parallel on two different systems and appeared to effortlessly get through the process with a minimum of fuss, pretty much like my own brew days pan out......
    Highly recommended.

    Fantastic day, great beers
    Review by grantwomackon 29/01/2015
    This was a very well-run course. The content was appropriate for the audience and the step-wise process that Greg and Ben took the class through made it easy for everyone to understand. There was plenty of time for questions from the participants, and Greg went through many of the grain types, hopping techniques, beer styles, temperatures and brewing control systems, as well as recommending a range of literature for further reading. Lunch and beers were provided (all excellent!) and the opportunity to purchase items from the shop was very popular.
    I thoroughly enjoyed spending the whole day talking about beer, and I would recommend this course to anyone looking for an introduction to all-grain brewing.

    Great day, full of information to take away with
    Review by Belinda Beanon 20/01/2015
    Thanks for a really good day. I learnt so much and feel more confident to experiment with making any type of beer from kit to full grain. The next day was spent putting all the knowledge into practice and I am looking forward to the taste test in a month. I would also like to mention the fantastic lunch and wonderful beer on offer.
    Five stars

    Review by Grahamon 19/01/2015
    I really enjoyed the whole experience. Greg and Ben provided really good information and brewing tips to all levels of ability, there was a wide cross section of experience on the day, and I doubt anyone left without learning something new. Equipment and ingredients were well presented and there was no attempt of a hard sell, a refreshing change. Equally refreshing was the supply of excellent beers and a quality lunch. The advice not to drive was very necessary!

    All in all, highly recommended.

    Superb
    Review by Andyon 19/01/2015
    A superb day, I learned loads and had a great time. Very informally run, with questions encouraged from the start. Really good group on the course with mixed experience - so some great questions and experiences shared. Thanks to the previous class we had two excellent brews to drink during the day, and the lunch was also excellent.

    Greg is (of course) extremely knowledgeable. However, the way he puts his knowledge across makes this a winner as far as I am concerned. Down to earth, no pretense, and genuinely I didn't feel stupid asking my basic questions.

    Finally, the set of notes you are given to take away are very comprehensive.

    Highly recommended.

    Review by Starlerson 06/10/2014
    Excellent course, I have only brewed using extract method but this course is well suited to a novice like myself or those who had already brewed using all grain method and just wanted help to improve. I would now feel comfortable attempting all grain method based on the excellent tutorial. Greg delivers the course well and everything is very interactive throughout the day. 6 hours fly by!!
  • Great Course
    Review by JSon 30/06/2014
    A thoroughly enjoyable, friendly and informative course. Suitable for beginners and the experienced AG brewer. Highly recommend!
  • Great day out.
    Review by Richie Richon 10/06/2014
    Went on this course, as someone who had been grain brewing for a year or two and wanted to learn more. There where some people who had not brewed before. The class was really well balanced to reach everyone on the course needs. Greg and Ben did a great job. I would recommend this course, and would go again.
  • Very good course and fun too, without too much beer geekery
    Review by ChrisAon 10/06/2014
    I have just done Greg's course and, like his book, it is very good. Just enough technical stuff but with a practical touch demonstrating use of the kit including the expensive all singing and dancing german machine but no hard sell on the latter. My only regret is I came by car and so couldn't do justice to the rather good beer on tap (a beer tasting session also), so if you can arrange it, don't drive yourself home!! The course was enjoyable as well as informative and would suit someone who is just starting out and wondering if they want to go the whole grain hog and what kit is needed. Buy or get given Greg's book too...probably the best on the market for those just starting. Others with me on the session included complete novices and one or two more experienced Brewers who seemed to get a lot out of it as well. Well done Greg!

    Well worthwhile and very enjoyable
    Review by Oon 16/05/2014
    Having been AG brewing for a few months before this course I found it enormously beneficial!
    Seeing someone go through the process is a lot better than reading about what you're supposed to do (which can make a relatively simple process seem quite baffling) but I found the real benefit was being able to ask "why are you doing that?", "why are you doing it this way?" etc.
    It made me realise that some things I'd though were unimportant are actually important and vice versa. And some things I'd not even considered are actually very important!

    I had a brew day the day after which was a lot less messy than previous attempts and felt like it was a lot more successful, although it'll be about another week before I can confirm that.

    Added to these benefits, it was a generally very enjoyable day with plenty of beer to sample (as others have said, you should try to avoid having to drive) and a very good lunch!

    Great Day
    Review by kevinwhiteon 17/04/2014
    This was a great day. Greg has a real passion for brewing and this is evident in the way that he speaks about it. I have brewed from kits in the past and thought all grain was a bit too complicated for me to attempt.

    Having done the course I can see that the process is in fact very straightforward. I now feel confident to have a go.

    Good tuition, good food, good beer - great day!

    Review by Rogeron 27/03/2014
    Went on the February course.

    I have been AG brewing for many years and have had some wonderful results, but also some less so!!. Greg made the day really enjoyable and informative, and gave some tips which may explain my "failures".

    The course has rekindled my enthusiasm for home brewing and I am waiting in anticipation of trying my latest brew "Sitra Pale Ale"...one of the beers we tried on the course at lunchtime.

    Top tip: try and get the wife to drive, lunchtime was v enjoyable indeed!!

    Excellent course even for a total novice
    Review by Robon 20/03/2014
    I attended this course as a total virgin to home brewing. After a great day being shown what to do I bought all I needed and set about with confidence on my first brew day. The course adds something you can't simply read and gave a lot of tips and tricks.

    So here I am writing a review whilst drinking my first sample of home brew (Summer Lightening). The proof is in the drinking....so 5 star for the course.

    Highly recommended if you are a total virgin to brewing as it will give you all the confidence to go for it!

    Had a great day at BrewUK, much better than watching brew days on YouTube. Greg in particular was a gold mine of information and very open to random questions. Ben knows his stuff too. The beer and food was top notch would heartily recommend it to anyone who is thinking about starting all grain brewing or just wants to learn more. Great fun.

    Worth every penny - a must do course!
    Review by doggy styleon 10/03/2014
    I cannot recommend this course highly enough. For anyone who wants to explore or further their own experience and knowledge of all grain brewing then this course is a must. The depth of knowledge that is available is second to none. Everything from the moment you arrive to leaving is done professionally and with a friendliness and ease that makes you feel at home from the first minute. Every query or doubt is fully discussed and explained in a faultless and informative fashion from both Greg and his assistant Ben. You are encouraged to get involved and to discuss your own ideas amongst other brewers present and to sample some of their previous brews.

    The whole day is a fun filled brewing celebration that has certainly inspired me to progress my own brewing ideas further.

    Don't hesitate to book yourself on this course if you get the chance, you won't be disappointed.

    Well worth it.
    Review by Philon 10/03/2014
    Really glad I attended this course. It covered the whole process with two beers being brewed during the day (using conventional and Braumeister systems). Plenty of time to ask questions, view various ingredients and discuss equipment etc. The Ploughmans lunch was very good.

    The quality of the beer (brewed at the previous session) was excellent - undoubtedly pub quality or better. All the beer was served from Cornelius kegs, although other conditioning & storage methods were discussed.

    Overall, definitely recommended.

    Excellent course, informative and great fun.
    Review by Andrewon 12/02/2014
    I attended the All Grain Brewing Master Class a few days ago, Feb 2014. It was excellent, both informative and fun. Having read the 'posts' already left about this day course there is nothing I can add other than saying it's all true. If you are thinking of attending don't hesitate, book it now ,you won't regret doing so.
    There were many high points but for me the demonstration of the Speidal-Braumeister automatic brewing machine was the one I would pick out. An amazing contraption, personally I'll stick with my buckets and boiler medieval method for now but in a few years time, when I reach old age pension age and lugging the various tubs around gets too demanding maybe I'll be back to Greg at brewuk.to buy a 50L machine...

    Review by Fletchon 10/02/2014
    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this course if you're thinking of trying all grain brewing, or even if you've already tried it but are looking for a few tips to improve. Greg will take you through the whole process while Ben brews two lots of beer, one using basic equipment and one using a Braumeister. Don't drive if you can help it as you get to drink as much as you like of the beers made on the previous month's course, and they're of excellent quality.

    Worth every penny and more
    Review by Matthewon 27/01/2014
    I decided to attend the course as I hadn't got to grips with the all grain process but had done plenty of extract kits.

    The day started with a brief introduction which helps relax people into things and allows you to get to know one another. Greg carries the day through talking of the processes involved, all the while getting us involved in making a beer (or in this case 2) for the next class to savour.

    The facilities were perfect for the day, lunch was delicious and I will shortly be ordering a beer kit after trying the single hop cascade - why did I drive?!

    Even if you are only going to brew using a Coopers kit or similar, I would advise a day out on this course.

    Excellent value course and very informative
    Review by Damskion 23/01/2014
    I attended this course after doing a few kit brews with the intention of learning the all grain process to go on and buy the kit. It was a very we'll structured and informative day with good group input and discussions. A very warm welcome from the team and a decent lunch with a few beers too! I'm now brewing all grain at home with some good results, it's definitely a good way to get to grips with the process for the first time before spending out money on new equipment. Highly recommended.

    Well worth attending, excellent value
    Review by fletchon 21/01/2014
    It's worth the cost alone just to sit down with someone and go through a full days all grain brew. Demystifies exactly what you need to do and exactly what kit you need to do it.

    Highly recommended. The one I went to had a wide range of folk in attendance - from total novices through to people just starting commercial microbreweries.

    Comes with course notes, lunch and ample beer-tasting opportunity.

    Additional bonus in that it takes place in the brewuk store which is a bit like Aladins cave.

    Review by Peteron 21/01/2014
    A very enjoyable day with Gregg demonstrating how straight forward all grain brewing can be. He explained the essentials for consistent results and the products & equipment required to achieve this within various budgets.
    We all enjoyed an excellent ploughmans lunch with a couple of different brews and time to chat to other brewers.
    Highly recommended for any brewer thinking of moving from extract brewing to all grain brewing.

    Making It All Make Sense!
    Review by Mikeon 19/01/2014
    As an all-grain home brewer of a couple of years experience, producing perfectly acceptable but perhaps not exceptional beers, I decided it was time to find learn what I really should be doing!

    Although plenty of information is available on-line and from books to help us all get started, I always had some parts of the brewing process that remained shrouded in mystery, with conflicting advice on best practice from many sources.

    A day with Greg on his excellent All Grain Brewing Masterclass has now cleared away all the uncertainty, making me aware of parts of the process I was doing wrong, and others that I was getting away with more by luck than judgement, and so I am now confident that I will brew better, more consistent beer from now on with the benefit of knowing what the hell I should be doing and why!

    So whether you are a complete beginner who is tempted to try all-grain brewing but haven't yet taken the plunge, a relative novice like me who has a rough idea what to do, or a seasoned brewer set in your ways but open to suggestions, then this course is for you.

    As well as the great brewing demo from Greg, the course is an ideal opportunity to chat and swap tips with like-minded people.

    Oh, and the ploughman's lunch (with beer) is worth coming along for on its own!

    Excellent course, practical and clearly delivered. A straight forward explanation of the process with lots of subtleties for the more experienced. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in All grain brewing.

    A must for home brewers whether you want to mash first or not!

    Ingredients list:

    1) Take a handful of friendly amateur enthusiasts and seat them on rustic bales of straw.

    2) At appropriate intervals ply them with delicious ploughman’s lunch and/or homebrew.

    3) Add Greg’s unbeatable interactive brewing banter.

    4) Enjoy how he demonstrates how to brew from crushed grains to prepared yeast.


    This course is a must for anyone interested in home brewing whether you want to mash first or not.

    All tips ‘n’ tricks are included in this highly interactive training day. Extra devices, websites and books are discussed for further reference (including one written by Greg).

    So if you are in to mashing and sparging (and maybe dry hopping), or simply boiling and fermenting, this course makes perfect sense as a gift for a loved one who wants to brew you great beer to drink. Or treat yourself. Either way, the day will be long remembered. I know I won’t forget it - can’t wait to brew again.

    (Course notes included.)

    As a relative brewing novice, I found this day invaluable. Greg took us through all stages of a full brew day and - to be honest - made it look easy.

    From an introduction to different malts, through the mash, sparging, the boil (including adding hops at the different stages of the boil), all the way through to yeast types, preparing and pitching the yeast to the different options to bottle, keg, etc. - he covered it all in a relaxed and informal way with plenty of opportunities for questions and debate.

    What made the day even more useful was hearing the experiences and feedback from the other people on the course.

    The excellent ploughmans lunch + home brew rounded of an excellent day.
