It took roughly two months to get it completed, as my first post about the Series was onContinue reading “Beer Education: Series Overview”

Beer Education: Module Ten: Beer Assessment and Tasting

Welcome to the final module of the class – The Science of Beer Brewing! Congrats! We finally made it.

Beer Education: Module Nine: Beer Quality and Stability

As always, we start off module nine with a video – a one minute and eight second video – discussing the module; providing an overview for Module Nine – Beer Quality and Stability. Beer quality (obviously) is very important; as is the stability of beer. No one wants a beer that is flat or disgustingContinue reading “Beer Education: Module Nine: Beer Quality and Stability”

Beer Education: Module Eight: Beer Filtration and Packaging

As with every other module, we begin with a quick summary and preview video that takes about a minute and twenty seconds to start us off. Discussing what happens after fermentation and maturation. The next page is a text page titled “What is Filtration?”. “During filtration, a turbid liquid (in this case: unfiltered beer) isContinue reading “Beer Education: Module Eight: Beer Filtration and Packaging”

Our next module is all about the fun guy (get it?) organisms that poop out alcohol and make our beer – beer.

Beer Education: Module Four: Hops and Spices

Finally we’re up to the module all you hop-heads were looking forward to. Module Four: Hops and Spices! I imagine most of you will be caring about the hops of it; not the spices, but both are intricate to brewing (as you will see with this module). So let’s continue our journey and adventure throughContinue reading “Beer Education: Module Four: Hops and Spices”

Beer Education: Introduction

We start up with an opening page discussing the MOOC and a few details in the vein of that. Scrolling down on the opening page, we get a video by Kevin Verstrepen, of the University of Leuven.

Beer Education: Syllabus

This is more of the starting point, with the syllabus just being the ‘cap’ to it. Its more about starting the course than the actual syllabus. I’ll walk through what I did to start up the course, and then cover the syllabus at the end. I was tempted to call this: “Beer Education: The Start”Continue reading “Beer Education: Syllabus”

Beer Education: Series

For everyone stuck in and going stir crazy, or having cabin fever, or losing their marbles, minds, biscuits, or gravy, or whatever term you want to call it, I’m introducing a new series.
