A two day class, taught by James Tucker, aimed at describing the essential brewing science underpinning the process of brewing. This course is aimed at both inexperienced and experienced home brewers looking to increase their understanding of the science of brewing. Participants will have a far deeper understanding of the brewing process, enabling them to improve the quality of the beers they make at home.
Go all the way from raw material selection through to the quality and stability of the finished beer. Learn the importance of analyzing the quality of raw materials, process control parameters and effective quality assurance protocols. A class ale will be brewed, and analyses on barley, malt, hops, yeast, wort and beer will be discussed. In addition to the classwork students have the option to visit a prominent craft brewery.
Includes lunch, class text and optional brewery tour.
