The Siebel Institute Brewing Microbiology course is designed to provide the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to implement an effective microbiological quality control / quality assurance program.
The course will acquaint the student with the appropriate methods for biological and sanitary control within the brewery, and will promote an understanding of the essential modern-day tools for effective microbiological evaluation of process and product.

A detailed study of the microorganisms that are likely to occur during the various stages of the brewing process will be conducted. The laboratory exercises provide opportunities to acquire skills in microbiology and microscopy. Practical work will reinforce the techniques required to isolate and identify microorganisms as well as demonstrate some of the latest developments in brewing microbiology.

The Siebel Institute of Technology Brewing Microbiology Course is conducted at our Siebel Institute Microbiological Services division in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Our Microbiological Services division is located at the National Research Council Biotechnology Research Institute, one of the world's leading yeast & genetic research facilities. Students will be surrounded by research professionals using state-of-the-art equipment, creating an environment that is unique to brewing education.
