Fermentation Tour – OSU150 Land Grant Festival
October 3 • 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm• Free
Fermentation facilitates the production of wine, beer and even cheese! A state-of-the-art, two-barrel, temperature-controlled brewing system is located in the pilot plant in Wiegand Hall. The brewhouse allows students to participate in the brewing process from malt milling to lagering, and is complete with packaging and pasteurization capabilities.
The pilot plant winery is located in neighboring Withycombe Hall and is composed of equipment necessary for wine grape processing including a stemmer-crusher, presses, filtration systems, batch centrifuge, bottling systems and storage facilities. The winery serves as a research and teaching tool for both resident students and extension workshops. University-owned vineyards provide wine grapes for teaching and research purposes.
OSU is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a year-long series of events, including four festivals. These festivals recognize that Oregon State is one of only two universities in the U.S. that have been honored with land, sea, space and sun grant designations. This event is part of the OSU150 Land Grant Festival running October 1 through 17. Learning, discovery and service to all people will always drive us to make our world better.
