The program of lectures includes the following topics:

Yeast & fermentation basics: Yeast physiology, basics of fermentation and respiration, yeast taxonomy and diversity, yeast growth and multiplication, and more.

Yeast management in breweries: Different yeast management strategies. Active dry yeast production process. Viability and shelf-life of active dry yeast and E2U concept. Pitching rate, direct pitching vs rehydration.

Latest research from Fermentis R&D: Applied research on the influence of brewing parameters (temperature, pitching rate, and wort gravity) on fermentation kinetics, production of volatile compounds and yeast sensory expression. Fermentis research on yeast/hop interactions and promotions of thiol release. Sour beer production methods, including kettle souring and use of “wild” yeast and Brettanomyces. Low alcohol beer production, with a focus on the use maltose negative organisms. As time allows, we will also cover additional hot topics in the market.
