There will be hands-on brewing activities focused on recipe development and process control and monitoring.  Laboratory sessions are hands-on and intended to provide training as well as an introduction to equipment and basic laboratory setup for a small- to medium-sized brewery.  Participants may take away wort if they desire. (Bring your own carboy and airlock or buy these on-site).

You must initially register with a $500 deposit to retain your seat in the course (or opt for full payment option).  Final full registration payment deadline is March 31st.  

PLEASE NOTE: Lack of full registration payment by March 31st will result in the class seat being offered to wait-list students, and forfeiture of a $500 deposit.
