Interplay Of Hops And Yeast

Hops and yeast are the "smallest" raw materials in terms of quantity. However, their effect on the sensory properties makes them all the more important and they are the determining factor for many beer styles.

Interplay of Hops and Yeast

More Information

A common feature of the two brewing raw materials, so different at first glance, is their enormous influence on sensory properties, both through the use of different varieties/strains and through the technology used. In addition, yeasts can influence hop constituents through so-called biotransformation in beer.

The course will take place on the premises of the BarthHaas Campus in Nuremberg.

Bright and modern rooms, our in-house taproom, a bonitier room with sensory studio and our centerpiece the concept brewery invite creative work and exchange of ideas.

Good to know: 

The registration deadline is 10 days before the event, spaces on the course are limited.

How to find us by public transport: The S2 train leaves from the Main Train Station in Nuremberg every 20 minutes and takes 12 minutes to BarthHaas. Alight at the stop "Nürnberg Mögeldorf". BarthHaas is (almost) directly opposite the stop.

The seminar is open to all interested parties, but is also part of the classroom training program of the "Candidates of the IMB".
