Beer Quality: Freshness

Learn at your own pace how to achieve flavor stability in your products from a pioneer in beer freshness. In a series of entertaining, hugely informative and easily understandable video lessons, Charlie Bamforth will take you through a discussion of why (and whether) flavor stability matters, the positive and negative changes that can occur in beer over time and why these changes occur. You’ll also learn how to assess flavor change using your senses and other relatively simple methods, how to address raw materials and process in enhancing stability and how to prevent the skunking of beer.
