Ensure the quality and consistency of your beer by learning how to build and manage proficient tasting panels for your brewery, with Siebel’s Sensory Panel Management course.
The first line of quality control and product evaluation in any brewery is formed by a trained taste panel. By effectively utilizing taste panels appropriately and collecting and analyzing the results compiled from trained tasters, and taking the right actions based on the results, your brewery will improve quality, consistency and profitability.
With instruction given by brewing industry sensory panel experts, this course instructs you in the tools and techniques used by many of today’s leading craft breweries to assess their products and analyze data to ensure beer of the best quality and consistency. This course is critical for breweries of every size, and can also benefit brewing guilds looking to form member taste panels towards evaluating and improving the quality of beers produced by their members.
All students applying for a program, module or course must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age. For this course, prior brewing knowledge is not required, but students will benefit from existing knowledge of brewing technologies and/ or related sciences.
