Just booked tickets for a trip to Belgium this April! I will spend a whole week on part 1 of a hands on, intense brewing training, on a large (25-30 barrel) brewhouse. Am very excited to have this opportunity to elevate my skills and experiences from the small homebrew batches to this professional level!
Part of the training is learning to brew on a large system, and another is getting used to making the recipes I will be using here in the US on such a scale. This whole learning process will, of course, require ample taste testing... Oh, the hard labor of studying! ;)
