New Course offering from Siebel Institute of Technology

Framed within the World Brewing Academy, Siebel Institute of technology has created a brand-new course offering for those seeking, premium brewing education. WBA Fundamentals of Brewing Technology is a web-based course that covers the essential topics of beer production.  The concept for the course was born from an increasing demand for shorter, intermediate-level offerings available to students with limited time and finances.

The WBA Fundamentals of Brewing Technology is composed of 20 lectures.  The open session format allows students to enroll whenever it is convenient, and then gain immediate access to a totally revamped learning platform. During the following 5-weeks, a monitor will be available to answer questions while the students learn the principles of beer production processes. Within a very short timeframe, students will gain a level of brewing knowledge that will benefit them immediately. Topics covered in the course include:

  • Brewing Process Overview
  • Basic Brewing Chemistry
  • Brewing Water Basics
  • Brewing Water Adjustments
  • Introduction to Hops
  • Barley and Malting
  • Specialty Malts
  • Milling
  • Mashing

  • Recipe Formulation
  • Nature of Yeast

If, after completing WBA Fundamentals of Brewing Technology, a student would like to take the next step in furthering their professional brewing education, the tuition amount already paid will be offered as a discount towards WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology, online or campus.
