Sensory Training Kits

For over a decade, Siebel Institute Sensory Training Kits have set the standard for accuracy and ease-of-use in beer sensory training applications. Developed in conjunction with the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) as part of their comprehensive beer judge training program, the liquid format of the Siebel Institute sensory standards offers key advantages over other sensory training products, including: 

  • Long-term shelf stability of the kits without the need for refrigeration 

  • Highly-concentrated standards, with each vial serving up to 20 people 

  • Self-mixing as beer is poured into pitchers 

  • Ability to be dosed into bottles for ease of service in large group presentation situations 

  • Easy measurement using a laboratory pipette, allowing for dosing at different concentrations into specific sample sizes 

  • Accurate concentration rates based on established sensory science 

Siebel Institute sensory kits are available in preformatted kits as well as mix & match kits, allowing them to be tailored for specific training purposes.  

Siebel Institute also offers presentations regarding the preparation of sensory standards, suggested tasting techniques, and companion videos for each of our sensory compounds via our Siebel Sensory Station playlist on YouTube. Our YouTube channel will continue to offer a growing selection of instructional videos to assist tasters in building an understanding of the principles of brewing sensory science.  

 

The Siebel Institute Sensory Training Kits contain up to 25 vials of pre-measured “standards” representing some of the most important flavors and aromatics found in beer.
