CHEM ENG 4074 - Brewery Engineering

North Terrace Campus - Winter - 2022

In this course students will learn how process engineering applies to the brewing industry. The fundamentals chemistry and biology will be applied to the concepts of beer quality and flavour, cleaning and sanitation, and the effects that various ingredients including malts, hops, yeasts/bacteria and water have on the brewing process. Process engineering principles are utilised to understand milling, mashing, boiling, fermenting and packaging and to design, optimise and control these processes in a brewery. Within the course, research into beer styles and recipes will be used to produce successful recipes and to produce for beers in a small scale brewery. Knowledge of the business and marketing of beer will also be used to prepare a business case for opening a new production brewery.
