MSU - Artisan Distilling Workshop

One of the most long standing and popular activities of the MSU Artisan Distilling Program is the MSU Artisan Distilling Workshop conducted in cooperation with Carl GmbH and and Brewing & Distillling Corp. This workshop is over fifteen years old and is held multiple times annually.

The two-day workshop is for individuals either active in the distilled spirits industry or contemplating entry into it. The workshop targets practical information and a hands-on approach. The instructors have many decades of experience to share with participants.

Topics included in the workshop include:

  • Historical perspective of the development of modern distilling technology
  • Fundamentals of operation of pot and column stills
  • Economics of artisan distilling
  • Practical demonstrations of commercial stills

Groups are usually limited to about 15 attendees, to guarantee a high quality learning experience with more personal interaction with instructors and hand-on learning with the equipment. It is it recommended to enroll early, if possible. To apply for the workshop or obtain more information, please email Kris Berglund at the address below.
