The full-day 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.
This session will be held at Metropolitan State University of Denver. (School location and address is below under "workshop location").
A sampling of comments from the first seminars:
"So interesting and informative."
"It helped me get a general overview on how important yeast analysis and control is on getting good results in our beer."
"The lab section was my favorite."
