Sight Glass Videos talks Yeast (health, management, pitching, temperatures, etc) with Patrick Wynn-Williams of Amsterdam Brewery.
This workshop will explore the process of all-grain brewing. Beginning with milled grains and water, participants will proceed through all the steps for making a beer completely from scratch. Each participant will brew their own 4 litre batch of beer on equipment that can be found in most home kitchens.

Designing recipes is a slow process and, in my opinion, should only be attempted once the entire brewing, fermentation, and packaging processes are understood.
