BTSB 301 - Recipe Design & Troubleshooting


Ditch the kits and the training wheels!  Build a foundation of brewing knowledge over a six-week period to improve your brewing skills and learn the fundamentals of recipe-design and troubleshooting.  Each week focuses on one step of the brewing process during a 2-hour session.  The first three weeks cover the basics of recipe design where you will put together your own custom recipe.  This will be followed by a group brew day where we carry out those recipes in 20-liter batches.  The last three weeks cover fermentation, packaging and sensory training to trouble-shoot your beer.  The course finishes with a release party featuring the beers brewed in class.  This course will allow you to finally have the confidence to ditch clone recipes and begin crafting your own creations.
