3.5 SWS
5 ECTS

Lecture contents

The course consists of two parts:
1.Brewing technology
2.Characterization of a recombinant yeast strain
In the course of the brewing technology, beer, liquor and vinegar are produced. This includes the process design, QA, filling and labeling.
In the second part, a yeast strain producing lactic acid (outcome of the molecular biological lab) will be characterized in terms of productivity in comparison to the wild type and a mutant strain (PDC neg.)
