Benefits of attending

There's a taint on our beer - what do we do now?

Being presented with a tainted beer raises a whole series of questions. What is the taint? How has this happened? Is the beer safe? This course is designed for those confronted with such questions and aims to develop skills in coming up with the answers.

Workshop content

This practical interactive course will present attendees with tainted beers, brewery data and information that will simulate the types of flavour taints that can develop when normal processing conditions have been compromised. Under the guidance of our consultants, the group will be expected to identify the taint, and take this knowledge forward to come up with a practical and efficient way to identify the cause of the taint and how to resolve the issue.

Attendees will need to be familiar with the sensory evaluation of beer, and have knowledge of the brewing process in order to gain the maximum benefit from this course.

This course is offered at Campden BRI Nutfield, but is also available on site so that your teams can work through these scenarios together as a group.

"This course really gets to the heart of the matter - how to fix it when it goes wrong. It is challenging but exciting, and is excellent for those developing their technical careers as well as those looking for a refresher."

This course can be customised and is available in house
