AdvertisementWild brewing is a simple yet fascinating process that utilises naturally present yeasts and spontaneous fermentation to create both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Join Tim as he shares his passion for brewing creative drinks using local and wild foraged ingredients including, raw honey, native blossoms, green pine cones, and various botanicals to brew up fizzy, probiotic sodas that are both delicious and improve gut health.
Tim will cover:
- Capturing wild yeasts and maintaining starter cultures
- How to forage ethically and safely, and we’ll do some in the City Farm garden - Creating unique flavour bases using seasonal, store-bought or wild foraged ingredients
- Brewing up and serving your own delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks at home
- Equipment and materials required
Tim will bring tasters of his current brews along with some homemade snacks to accompany. You’ll leave with recipes and sufficient knowledge to take up this fun and creative hobby for yourself. Bring along a clean jar or bottle and you can take home your own wild starter culture on the day.

Our weekly farmer's market will be in full swing during your workshop, so it's worth arriving a little early to check out the stalls and pick up some fresh produce.
