Has anyone out there taken any of the online courses at Siebel Institute out of Chicago. I was thinking about enrolling for their Concise Course for Brewing Technology, but just curious if I could find some feedback.

Cheers

I've wondered about that too. Hope someone can give some feedback.

Perhaps I am posting in the wrong section? I found a few other posts from the past and tried contacting those people, but no luck so far. The most recent of those posts I found was 2009.

Hi guys,
I took the Concise course.
It's not bad but I think you can get the same info and save a lot of money by doing a lot of reading on your own.

I kind of thought the price was a bit high for distance learning.

Between John Palmer, Jamil's & Randy Moshers books plus this community, you can get quite an education under 100 bucks.

Sitting in front of your monitor and a massive stainless brew kettle are two totally different learning experiences. Volunteer at you local brewery. You will learn loads.

Take tours if you can. They are priceless. Here's one of my favorite memories.

The only reason I would take this course would be to become eligible for the 20 week Master Brewer course they offer. It looked like a great hands on experience to really learn all you can about beer.

Not sure if anyone is following this thread anymore, but I just signed up for the "Executive Overview of the Brewing Process" and the "Start Your Own Brewery". I begin the online course "Executive Overview of the Brewing Process" in October and I will then be traveling up to Chicago to attend the 3 day course of "Start Your Own Brewery". Yes it does cost a pretty penny, but if you are going to be in the business, then you have to look at it as an investment for the future. I am planning on opening up a brewpub concept in Atlanta next year and view these courses as being geared towards my goal. I will try to keep you informed if you are interested. PM me with your email if you want to know more information while I am taking the classes.

As far as reading books and getting all your information through that, I completely agree. I have learned a ton just by trying to absorb everything I can find reading wise and watching vids on the net. However, when it comes to finding investors for your business they like to see 2 things: a good business plan and some sort of schooling that shows a foundation for what essentially is their investment.

Yes, that sounds awesome please keep me up to date on your status. I am rather jealous you are going to be doing that.

Currently looking into taking classes to see what I can do after getting my small business associates. If I could potentially go here that'd obviously be awesome, or even take online classes in the mean time. Keep this updated! As you said you start in October so hopefully you'll post back. There's not too much information about them!
