Advanced Brewing Course


On this one day brewing skills and techniques course let expert brewer Alex Barlow from award winning Triple Point Brewing take you through the brewing process in more detail looking at some of the brewing calculations, recipe formulation, water treatments and other factors that influence the brew and your beer.

Alex Head Brewer uses his scientific and practical understanding as a Master Brewer.  This will include looking at producing lagers, wheat beers and infused beers flavoured using adjuncts.


Upskill Your Brewing Knowledge


This course is ideal for junior brewers looking to go on and take the Practical Commercial Brewing Course or for home brewers looking to deepen their understanding of brewing calculations, and recipe formulations. It is also an ideal course for those who are looking to set up their own microbrewery now or in the future and are looking at developing their own range of beers but do not have a brewing background or training.
