This joint project between the Brewers Association and the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC) is designed to deliver basic quality methodology to attendees. Microbiology is an essential tool for all brewers. In fact, we are all microbiologists when working with yeast and cleaning our breweries. Join us as we explore, demonstrate, and explain HLP media and other low-cost micro options that give you scientific know-how and peace of mind in the brewery. Basic aseptic technique will be demonstrated and many ideas on how to have a micro program in a small brewery will be discussed.
