Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Q: Is the price per person or per batch?
A: The price is per batch of beer (one machine each batch). We take groups of up to three people per batch.

Q: Is it possible to have more than 3 people in a group?
A: It is possible to book a fourth person onto your group workshop. Add a fourth person to your group

Q: Do we have to have three people in our group?
A: Not at all. You are more than welcome to come on your own or as a group of 2 people. We do not match participants with others to make up the numbers.

Q: What time do you start?
A: Currently our Saturday and Sunday workshops start at 1pm.

Q: Do I need to bring anything?
A: In the interest of safety, please wear appropriate shoes and long pants. Be aware that this is a working environment which may have wet flooring and/or trip hazards such as hoses. Enthusiasm is always welcome. Home brew is appreciated if you have it. We aim to provide everything you need for your brewing workshop.

Q: What can I brew?
A: It is your beer and the world is your oyster. We shall do our best to enable you to brew whatever you wish. If you have a special request then please get in touch early to give us an opportunity to source non standard ingredients and research recipes to allow you to brew a great beer. Due to recommended fermentation temperature, we strongly advise against trying to brew a lager or pilsner style beer as we cannot accommodate the lagering process.

Q: Is the bottling workshop included in the workshop price?
A: Yes, we try to avoid hidden extras.

Q: I would like to purchase a workshop as a gift but don’t know which date to book. Do I need to select a date?
A: Not at all. If you go to the “Online Shop” and add a workshop for three to your basket, you can purchase a gift voucher and the recipient can let us know when they would like to have their workshop.

Q: I have a voucher, how do I redeem it?
A: To redeem your voucher, please email us (info@londonbeerlab.com) with your voucher number and the date you would like to book.

Q: Is there a time limit to come back and bottle our beer after the workshop?
A: We strongly recommend to bottle the beer within about 6 weeks. When left in the fermenter for several months most types of beers will develop off flavours and can become fairly undrinkable. We reserve the right to dispose of the beer if you have not made arrangements to bottle and collect it after 2 months.

Q: Can you bottle our beer for us?
A: Yes you can request to have your beer bottled and ready to be collected for an extra fee of £30
