Discover the vital details in the selection and processing of the key raw materials of beer—water, a starch source such as grain, hops, and yeast—as well as the ins and outs of grain handling and malt analysis. The carefully controlled germination of the grain, through the multi-step malting process, is presented and demonstrated. Expert guest speakers will join students in class and focus on specific topics related to the selection of quality raw materials.
