Learn the process of brewing to enhance your small business or take your home-brewing to the next level. Go from bucket to barrel in this seven week course where we cover malt, water chemistry, hops, yeast, brew-house workflow, and quality testing. We will cover the basics of reading malt and water reports, adjusting water chemistry, evaluating hops, harvesting and storing yeast, and performing basic quality checks for a small-scale brewery. An overview of the brewing process and best practices will round out the class. Students will have mixed lecture with hands-on learning, with opportunities to work with ingredients and apparatus. Learn how the science of water, hops, barley, and yeast meet the art of brewing to create quality beer and how some principles apply to wine, cider, and distilled spirits. Participants who successfully complete all seven sessions will receive a certificate.
