These one day ‘ingredient’ courses look in detail at each of the four key ingredients in beer. Each course gives an in depth look at how each ingredient is produced before arriving at the brewery, how to analyse and select the best ingredients for brewing specific beer styles and how best to use them in the brew-house to produce desired characteristics and flavour.

Course Details:
First and foremost, beer is a malt beverage. Malt is the source of sugar for fermentation to produce alcohol, as well as providing much of the flavour in beer, along with beer colour. It is often called the backbone of beer and this course covers everything from field-to-glass over the following topics:

  • Barley in the field
  • Anatomy of the Barley Grain
  • Malting Barley Parameters and Selection
  • Malting and Mashing
  • Specialty Malt Production
  • Malt Flavour and Selection

This course includes:

  • Morning Coffee/Tea & Pastries
  • Lunch – this will be provided by one of Bristol finest lunchtime eateries, these include Pieminister, Pinkmans and Harts Bakery. Vegetarian options available.
  • An end of day beer in New Bristol’s tap bar with the Head brewer and team.

NB: Please remember this is a working brewery so wear practical clothes and shoes.
