Offered jointly by the Siebel Institute of Technology and White Labs, the Essential Quality Control course presents a full range of topics related to quality control (QC) that will give you the knowledge required to produce beers of consistently high quality.
This course will cover the most important aspects of an in-house QC program, including sensory evaluation, advanced sensory analysis techniques, analytical testing, microbiological testing, bacteria detection, and sampling techniques. The emphasis in this course is practical hands-on learning enhanced by lectures dealing in the sciences behind the practice. You will learn the tools and procedures used worldwide to evaluate beer at every critical phase of production, employing standards designed and tested by organizations such as the Association of Brewing Chemists (ASBC) and the European Brewing Congress (EBC).
