Presenter: Eric Warner, Karbach Brewing Co., Houston, Texas
Anyone who got their start in homebrewing might relate to this scenario: You likely carbonated your 5-gallon batch with three-fourths cup of corn sugar, then kept your fingers crossed for days, or even weeks, and yet sometimes the resulting beer was as still as wine. Sound familiar? Who remembers the scene from Breaking Bad where Hank Schrader's bottles start exploding in his garage?
Join presenter Eric Warner of Karbach Brewing Co. for this dynamic webinar. He will walk attendees through the ins and outs of bottle conditioning at a commercial scale, addressing both basic and complex topics regarding equipment, yeast, sugar source, process, and refermentation parameters. You'll have chance after the presentation to ask Eric some questions!
Whether you’re experimenting with bottle conditioning as an R & D project or looking at bottle conditioning on a larger scale, you won’t want to miss this presentation!
