Webinar - Introduction to dry hopping in beer production on 6 March 2019, 9 am CET / 3 pm CET/ 9 am ET / 8 am CT / 6 am PT
Dry hopping involves the addition of hops to the fermentation and/or maturation vessels, either before or after primary fermentation, to extract the hop flavours and aromas into the beer that cannot be obtained through hopping in the brewhouse. The practice has become widespread in recent years, as pale ale and India pale ale styles have gained popularity in the market.
However, there are many challenges associated with this ‘revolution’. What exactly are the steps involved in dry hopping and what could potentially go wrong during the process? How can one avoid unwanted issues during dry hopping? Alfa Laval’s brewery expert will explain in detail during this webinar.
YOUR TAKE AWAY:
- Basic understanding of the dry hopping process
- Learn 2 new technologies to accelerates dry hopping, reduce product loss and improve taste quality during the process.
If you are someone who does dry hopping in a medium or large-scale brewery, this webinar is for you!
