Take a day to deep dive into yeast management and understand how to work with liquid cultures in a brewery. This practical workshop will demonstrate how to store, handle and pitch liquid yeast so you can maximise flavour profiles and reduce costs. We’ll also get the microscopes out so you can see it on a cellular level, evaluating how healthy your yeast is and identifying common contaminants.

The class size is limited to 12 places.

The course fee is £245.
