16 May 2020 • One Day Brewing Essentials - on-line

I just completed the One Day Brewing Essentials - on-line. There really is no on more experienced and knowledgeable in the industry than Vince. He is a really great bloke and I appreciated the opportunity for him to pass on some of this extraordinary knowledge. Thank you.

Dear Vince, I was disappointed with the content of the 1 day workshop, it seemed to me that you have integrated both home and micro brewery content which I believe did not deliver (given the cost) enough focus on the home brewing side. If I could offer advice I would suggest that you consider offering a dedicated 1 day workshop to home brewing and maintain the micro brewery as a separate workshop focus. I would also suggest that you could tighten your content (remove peripheral information) as I believe the workshop is unnecessarily long I hope you find this feedback construction Cheers Malcolm

Thank you for your comments and we will take them on board.

The courses are based on my experience as a brewer and as such the information used during the course can be related back to homebrewing.

All good brewing practices start at the lowest level and so good habits are made there.

In a one day course we cover basic elements of brewing, the effect of raw materials on outcomes, what to do to get consistent results.

We also strive to get a message across on high, consistent quality.

I hope that helps those considering to do this course.

Many other students have commented privately on the value they have received from this course.
