Brewing

Brewing is designed for those involved in the malting, brewing, and allied industries who have little or no formal training in brewing science. While some elementary knowledge of chemistry and biology is necessary, the book clearly presents the essentials of brewing science and its relationship to brewing technology. Brewing focuses on the principles and practices most central to an understanding of the brewing process, including preparation of malt, hops, and yeast; the fermentation process; mi

    Excellent Introduction To Brewing Science, October 11, 2007

    This review is from: Brewing (Paperback)

    In the interest of full disclosure, I was a student of Dr. Lewis at UC Davis so I might be partial to his take on brewing. Nonetheless, this is an excellent distillation of the authors decades of research and practical experience in all levels of brewing from craft brewing to regional breweries to large national breweries. The authors effectively screen out much of the minutiae that could clog an introductory text. Likewise, the authors are cognizant that many of the readers of the book will lack extensive science backgrounds and make it very accessible to audiences with some minor science training.

    If you are interested in understanding the underlying science of brewing this is the book for you. Skip the George Fix book on brewing, it’s full of errors and lacks an overall unifying narrative. Lewis and Young are both biochemistry Ph.D.s and have conducted massive amounts of research into all the areas that this book covers, yet they couple this research with a practical framework that makes it suitable for practicing brewers not just academics.

    This book gets deep into the science of brewing. If you are a brewer that wants to know more “why” than “how”, you will get your money’s worth. The drawings for illustrations are well placed, but some may be better with pictures. While most of the science goes over your head unless you have a chemistry background, it is written in a way that you can still grasp the concepts presented. I may read this a second time just to reinforce these. The other thing that I like is it not only the chemistry and science part, but brewing equipment (for BREWERIES, not homebrew equipment!) is covered in great detail in its function and purpose as well. I recently took a tour of New Glarus Brewing and noticed this book on the shelf of the QA/Lab guy’s office. A well-written advanced brewer’s book.
