Fantastic Experience

I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my brewing course. Lee was a great teacher and was flexible in terms of content, based on my interest and how quickly I grasped each aspect. I improve both my theoretical knowledge and practical skills significantly in the one day course. Thank you very much!

Thanks so much William. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you and glad to hear you found the course so useful!!
