This course covers the basics of yeast metabolism, fermentation conditions and impact on flavor compounds, and brewery yeast handling. Includes hands-on laboratory work geared towards practical brewing quality control. Gain practical tips and techniques from our staff and learn how to be your own yeast handling and fermentation expert.
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 three workshops were held in 2012, and four more were held in 2013.
