Workshop: High-Gravity Brewing: The Case for Sustainability and the Challenges

This workshop will focus on the practical method of high-gravity brewing. The reasons a brewer may choose to begin high-gravity brewing need to balance with the risks involved. Discover the "ins and outs" of high-gravity brewing and what a brewer needs to be mindful of on this quest. Topics to be discussed include the effect on raw material usage (especially yeast) during high-gravity brewing, mass balance of energy usage of high-gravity brewing vs. brewing to spec, and practical issues of high-gravity brewing.
