I do talks, brewing courses, brewing demonstrations, and beer tastings. In winter 2020 I’ll teach Viking Age and medieval brewing in Finland, and give a talk on sahti at a kveik seminar in Norway.

On March 7 I’ll be giving a course on Viking Age and medieval brewing in Pirkkala, Finland. We’ll brew sahti, medieval gruit ale, and hopped raw ale with simple kitchenware. I’ll guide how to use and maintain kveik type house yeast. As far as I know, this is the first course in Finland with kveik in the curriculum.
