The yeasty pros from Fermentis are hosting a one-day, in-person Brisbane workshop that promises to help brewers understand more of the often mysterious world of yeast and bacteria, and how improving your fermentation techniques can help brew better beer.
Taking place at Felons Brewing on October 6, you'll get guided training through a bunch of technical topics, including:
- Innovation in yeast and bacteria strains: Explore low alcohol beer fermentation using S. cerevisiae var. chevalieri strain selection, and an organoleptic comparison between Lactic or Lactic/Acetic kettle sour beer using Lactiplantibacillus plantarum and Levilactobacillus brevis bacteria.
- Yeast and hop interactions: Dive into some recent studies on the interaction of yeast with hops, highlighting the flavour development in alcohol fermentation of specific volatile groups such as esters and thiols.
- ‘Sensory in Style’ session: Take part in an educational sensory session examining flavours, faults and their mitigation across several styles of beer, from light lagers through to fuller-flavoured stouts.
The program will be broken up with beer tasting sessions, interactive components and discussions. And after the official session is done, you're welcome to kick on with drinks, food and more technical chat.
If you're a brewer that's interested in learning techniques to improve key parts of your fermentation processes (and hey, why wouldn't you?), make sure you register smartly.
Tickets for the full day session (10:30am to 4:30pm) are just $20 and can be booked here.
