    This review is from: Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation (Brewing Elements) (Paperback)

    This is a pretty good home brewing book. It’s NOT a yeast biology textbook or a yeast-ranching manual, though, and I think the other recent review is a bit unfair in its expectations. (If you’re looking for that kind of information, it’s out there. Start with George Fix.) It is technical enough to get its point across without requiring me to dig out old college textbooks to understand its references.

    If you’re an intermediate- to advanced-homebrewer, this is worth having. (True beginners should probably concentrate on big-ticket techniques first.) It will teach you everything you need to know to get the best performance out of yeast purchased from reputable sources and help you shepherd it through a typical 4 or 5 generations.

    I was really anticipating this book which may have unreasonably raised my expectations.

    The first half of the book can be reasonably skipped by most people who have had almost any brewing experience and felt somewhat like filler to me.

    The second half where there was actually some discussion of techniques and process was interesting. I would recommend this book to serious homebrewers for the second half, if only as a reference to help learn what you should go lookup in more detail. If nothing else the last couple of chapters are a decent survey of most basic yeast handling techniques. If it had been about as long, but more process and technique information it would have been better for my purposes.
