COURSE TOPICS INCLUDE:
Yeast: A Practical Guide
Yeast Metabolism Basics – Nutrition, Stress & Propagation
Yeast Handling & Storage
Fermentation Control – Brewing Conditions & Strain Selection
Your Brewery Lab & Developing a QC program
The Yeast Essentials workshops are the most popular classes offered by White Labs as the instructors provide practical tips and help to turn brewers into yeast handling and fermentation experts. The first workshops were held in 2012, and they regularly sell out.
A sampling of comments from the Yeast Essentials Workshop in Asheville, N.C., in May 2014:
"The White Labs Yeast Essentials course helped our brewery by providing information on how to improve yeast health, resulting in better fermentations, and most importantly, great and consistent beer."
"Now I know how easy it is to set up a lab at our brewery and how much it will benefit our products and our bottom line."
Andy Cubbin, Southern Appalachian Brewery
"The White Labs girls are a hoot!"
"Informative, technically interactive and fun."
Erik Walp, brewer, Neshaminy Creek Brewing
"The course was informative and practical. Our brewery will implement what we learned in the workshop."
Chip Gaul, RJ Rockers Brewing Company
"The White Labs team has done a magnificent job of combining complex information into a practical, user-friendly lecture. The information presented can be practically utilized in your present brewing operations to improve overall brewery performance."
David Doble, head brewer, Tampa Bay Brewing Company
"Even if you have been brewing a while, the information will still benefit what you do day to day."
"A must for anyone involved in or interested in brewing."
