For those in small breweries–or planning one. Microbiologist Jennifer Helber contributes her expertise on quality assurance–having established the QA program at Boulevard Brewing Co. in 1999. The workshop will have three sections:
1)Beer-spoiling bacteria (basic use of agar plates and broth)
2) Yeast viability (using a microscope),
3) Identifying off-flavors (three spikes of those most important to learn).
Registration required through Brown Paper Tickets (maximum 12). Fee is $75:
