Offered jointly by the Siebel Institute of Technology and White Labs, the Essential Quality Control course presents a full range of topics related to producing beers of consistently high quality.
This course will cover the most important aspects of an in-house QC program including:
· raw materials assessment
· testing wort/beer in production
· sensory training and evaluation
· analytical and microbiological testing
· bacteria detection and identification
· sampling techniques
Lectures dealing in the sciences behind the practice are enhanced by practical hands-on lab exercises at White Labs. You will learn the procedures, tools and standards which have been designed and tested by such organizations as the Association of Brewing Chemists (ASBC) and the European Brewing Congress (EBC).
