Whether you make beer at a local business or at home,
learn more about the brewing process at “Microbiology for Brewers” offered by
the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Continuing Education on Saturday and
Sunday, September 29-30.
Held in a fully equipped microbiology lab at UW-Stevens
Point, the course will be taught by Associate Professor of Biology Terese Barta
and will include the biological aspects of managing yeast and bacteria in the
brewing process. Participants will also learn how to determine yeast
populations, how to detect and identify bacterial contaminants and microscopic
staining, and observation techniques.
Offered to a small group of 12 will allow for
personalized attention for each participant. The course is for established
brewers only, as this is not a course on how to brew beer. The course
cost of $169 includes all materials.
