Brewer Seminar ONE: Milling and Mashing at the Nash Community College Production Lab at Rocky Mount Mills.
The seminar will focus in on two narrow aspects of brewing: MILLING & MASHING. It is designed to teach brewhouse operators in specific as well as brewers in general about the details and differences that result from the selection of raw materials to equipment choices to operation and recipe development. Our goal is to educate brewers of all walks enable them to make better beer - be a better brewer. The important takeaways mainly start where everyday experience and practical knowledge ends and attendees will gain in-depth understanding, have made new friends and take home a seminar handbook to keep the new wisdom close by.
All that insight will be conveyed and illustrated as well as taught in so many real world anecdotes by your presenters, Peter Kramer, Andreas Frank and Sebastian Wolfrum. All combined with over 74 years of combined experience on a global scale.
