Yeast Handling & Microbiology Australian Master Class

Yeast Handling & Microbiology Australian Master Class

How can we help support brewers in the most meaningful ways with education? In short, we did find an answer with our next big trip for Lallemand Brewing Australia. Bring hands-on learning experiences directly to the brewers. With this concept, the Lallemand Brewing Micro Master Course was born.  

Throughout the month of August, Daniel McCulloch and Richard Chamberlain, our Australia-based Technical team, will travel the span of Australia’s territories to bring essential microbiology understanding and best practice education to 6 cities throughout the country. Attendees can select from a number of dates and locations, and will participate in a day of seminars as well as receive hands-on training with microscopes, an educational booklet to take home, lunch and beers while networking. The cost all is AUD $350, which covers all of the aforementioned benefits. Topics covered will include: 

  • Yeast Harvesting 
  • Repitching (including cone-to-cone) 
  • Yeast storage options 
  • Yeast counting techniques 
  • Pitching by weight 
  • Determining yeast viability 
  • Identifying spoilage bacteria 
  • Stages of contamination 
  • How to handle contamination 
  • Diastaticus detection 

After the success of their previous tour (link here) as well as the wonderful response to the mobile R&D brewery skid, it was clear that bringing education directly to brewers is a post-lockdown solution for providing easily accessible, cost-efficient continued education to breweries. Daniel McCulloch, Regional Manager of Lallemand Brewing Asia Pacific had this to say, “Our goal for this course is that brewers leave feeling confident in re-pitching yeast and being able to detect contamination issues before they arise.”
