Zymurgy Institute 6 Starting Soon

CSU Pueblo has been offering the Zymurgy Institute since 2009. Each semester is approximately 5 months long and one of the objectives is to "gain refreshing hands-on experience in the science and technology of fermentation and beer brewing techniques." For a few seasons the classes were held at Bristol, they've had classes on campus in Pueblo, and now Pikes Peak Brewing will host Zymurgy Institute 6. This could be a nice Valentine's Day gift for your beer loving partner.

This time we'll see a ten-part advanced-brewing series of courses using the ½ Barrel All-Grain Brew-Magic Pilot Brewing System, manufactured by Sabco. The ten brew sessions are every other Saturday. Each will have a lecture the Wednesday before brew day and will cover:

1) German Pilsner - Feb. 8 & 11
2) Steam Beer  - Feb. 22 & 25
3) Octoberfest - March 14 & 17
4) Kolsh - March 28 & 31
5) Belgian Wit - April 11 & 14
6) Belgian Saison - April 25 & 28
7) American Pale Ale - May 09 & 12
8) Oatmeal Stout - May 23 & 26
9) India Pale Ale - June 13 & 16
10) Imperial Russian Stout - June 27 & 30

Individual sessions cost $125 each, or $999 for all ten sessions. The course is a non-credited course through CSU Pueblo although it looks like you might be able to get Continuing Education Units (CEU) for it. Click here for more information and links to the registration form.
