1-Week Intensive Malting Course

We are sorry to advise that there will be no 1-week CMBTC Malt Academy training courses during the fall/winter of 2020-2021.  We are looking to the Spring of 2020-21 (after April 1) to hold our next 1-week Malt Academy course in Winnipeg with the expectation that travel restrictions will be lifted by that time.  The CMBTC will not be holding on-line or virtual training as a replacement for in-person training. (Please note that CMBTC member training courses will continue to be held virtually during this time).  Please follow us on Twitter @canadianbarley or instragram.com/maltacademy for updates.
