Kwantlen Polytechnic University is serving up exciting news for beer lovers.

The institute is launching a two-year diploma in brewing and brewery operations beginning in September 2014.

The first brewing program in B.C will provide students with hands-on experience using the Langley campus’s specially designed brew laboratory. The lab is currently in development, but it will allow the selected 35 students to brew batches from scratch.

“We found out from our advisory committee that there’s a big need for people who have training,” said Michelle Molnar, the dean’s assistant for the faculty of science and horticulture.

British Columbia has 72 breweries, second only to Ontario, according to a study commissioned by Beer Canada.

“A lot of (brewers) said, ‘people are interested in working for us but they don’t have any schooling and they don’t have any formal training,’ and that’s what we’re trying to provide.”

There will be an option to bridge the diploma into a science, trade or business degree. Also, after the first year of the program, students will fulfill a work placement requirement.

How to Brew with Malt Extract (A Complete Walk-Through for the Beginner Brewer)

How to Brew: Extract (for Beginners)

Welcome to homebrewing, a fun and easy hobby that many start for different reasons. Some enjoy the hands-on process of creating something of their own, some are swept up by the continuing creativity of the craft breweries and want to experiment themselves, and others want to save costs rather than buying by the case from a retail beer outlet. Brewing can be as simple or complex as you want it to be, there are many different ways to brew beer. In this section, we are going to show you one way, and we are going to keep it as simple as we can be for someone just starting out with their first batch. We’re going to walk through the equipment, the ingredients and the process. This is not intended to teach you everything there is to know about brewing, more to come on that later, this is to kick things off in the right direction.

Continue for a full How To Process in Homebrewing Basics (From Ingredients to Fermentation!)…

This is the first in a series of walk-through tutorials on brewing. OBK looks to cover many homebrewing topics, such as; bottling, kegging, yeast starters, kegging, etc.
