Paying close to $850 for the online course may not seem feasible for someone who is looking to just get some knowledge for home brewing. It is, however, great for someone who is planning on going into the business. It has taken all the information and knowledge that I have gathered over the last 2-3 years and condensed it into an actual learning format. I am also going up on Nov. 28-30 for a three seminar course that discusses brewery and brewpub operations. All in all, I have spent close to $2000. Is this a good investment? I believe so, but if I could take the time off to actually attend, I would have done that instead of the online course, because I believe hands-on training is better than discussions and reading. email me at email@example.com
if you want to talk more about it and I can give you some information that could be useful.
ChefJoeR, now that some time has gone by, how do you feel about the Executive Overview of the Brewing Process course? Would you recommend this one or skipping it and going for the Concise Course? How are your plans for the brewpub going?
