I’ve authored and taught a number of courses for Craft Beer & Brewing magazine’s online educational platform. The courses are targeted toward homebrewers of different levels, but the goal with every class is to be informative without overwhelming the student with details that might get in the way of understanding the content.
Introduction to Lagering
In this class, Craft Beer & Brewing Contributing Editor Dave Carpenter will walk you through everything you need to know to create your own craft lagers at home. At the end of the course, you’ll have gained a solid understanding of what it takes to brew a great lager and how to create the right environment to cold ferment and cold condition your beer.
Home draft systems
In this course, you’ll learn how to build, maintain, and troubleshoot your home draft system. Whether you are building your beer dispensing setup from scratch or have purchased a ready-to-go kegerator, this course will show you, quite literally, the nuts and bolts of draft system maintenance.

If you’re tired of filling bottles and ready to learn everything you need to get started with kegging, you’ve come to the right place. From cleaning and sanitizing to pouring your first pint and everything in between, we have the information you need to keg your homebrew.
