Homebrewing Workshops

Better Beer With Science

Clarke University is now hosting brewing workshops to help homebrewers take their beer to the next level! You’ll learn the science behind brewing as well as valuable tips and tricks to advance your brewing skills.

During the workshop, you will become acquainted with using beer flavor maps to establish a common language of beer descriptors. You will be introduced to many of the most common off-flavors, learn to identify the steps in the brewing process where these may originate, and use The Defects Wheel® for Beer to discuss remedies. Brewers will have the opportunity to bring homebrews during the Thursday session to apply the principles learned during the workshop.  We also have a local homebrew expert available for questions and answers.

Participants will take home The Defects Wheel® for Beer and a Clarke University drinking glass in addition to other giveaways. The workshop will be led by Clarke professors Dr. Sunil Malapati (Professor of Biochemistry and Food Chemistry), Dr. Karen Glover (Professor of Organic Chemistry) and Dr. Mike Dalecki (local homebrew expert). It will be held in the Clarke University Food Science Labs, Catherine Bryne Hall 330.
