The Siebel Institute of Technology continues to operate all web-based courses and programs without any delays or problems. We have temporarily closed campus educational offerings until early August at this time due to the COVID-19 situation.

To support our recent campus WBA students whose education has been impacted, we have immediately offered our well-established web-based educational option to complete this portion of their current studies.

Entry level

Craft Distilling and Operations Technology course

Entry level Distilling

The Siebel Institute Craft Distilling Operations and Technology course is designed to give students the critical information they need to create distilled spirits in a small-scale distillation environment and understand the underlying issues involved with starting a distilling business.

Description

Students will learn the theory behind working successfully in small distillery operations as well as related management and logistical issues. With content created with participation by the Ethanol Technology Institute and presented by some of the leading international experts in distilling, this course will give you the training you need to operate your distillery efficiently, safely, and profitably. During the five-days of the course, you will learn production techniques involved in distillation from grain, fruit and other products from start to finish. Sensory analysis is presented towards building an understanding of the positive and negative flavor attributes commonly associated with the production process, and visits to area distilleries give students a view of the basic operations of a small distillery.

If you are considering entering this quickly-growing segment of the alcoholic beverage industry, the Craft Distilling Operations and Technology course will give you a foundation of understanding on which you can build a successful career in craft distilling.
