Rapid Sensory Quality Control: New Sensory Methods for Craft Brewers

Speaker:  Lindsay Barr, Co-Founder, Draughtlab

The most important function of any brewery is the production and release of brands that are both free of defects and consistent with their intended flavor profile. This objective requires the application of robust quality assurance methods, but many small craft breweries see their lack of time, money and expertise as insurmountable barriers-to-entry preventing them from building their ideal quality assurance program. Rapid Sensory QC methods will be presented to highlight how the brewing industry can successfully circumvent these common challenges and build a sustainable sensory program.

Yeast Handling: Tips and Techniques

Speaker: Kara Taylor, Technical Laboratory Manager, White Labs

This presentation will discuss yeast handling specific for craft brewers.  We will discuss the different methods and best practices of each method and some ideas on how you can implement this in your own brewery.

Spirit Barrel Aging: Processes, Procedures, & Techniques for Small-Scale Programs

Speaker: Julian Shrago, Co-Owner & Head Brewer, Beachwood BBQ & Brewing
