The aim of the course is to introduce the students to malting process, which consists of steeping, germination and kilning. The focus will be mainly on the production of barley malt, wheat malt, but also and other types of malts produced from non-traditional cereals. The course includes other brewing ingredients - water and hops (hop products prepared hops, hop extract).
