Brewing Consulting Services, LLC provides a wide range of Practical Operational advice and solutions to clients in the Craft Brewing Industry. Our approach to issues is holistic. One example would be wort separation issues. We start with the Lautering device performance and we will incorporate our knowledge of how milling, mashing and product transfer have direct and indirect effects on the run off process. The same approach is taken in other brewing processes, with flavor being a good example.
Our group includes the founder, David Kapral and Prime Associates Mark Sammartino and Pat Frost. Collectively this group has about 100 years of experience in the industry. We have each made significant contributions to companies where we have worked, and to the clients for whom we have consulted. Group members are located on both coasts and in the Midwest.
