This book provides a refreshing update for experienced brewing professionals and a valuable primer on brewing science for anyone new to the science or in need of a current review. It provides reader-friendly coverage of basic brewing chemistry and biochemistry that will be meaningful to anyone with an interest in brewing.

The book addresses the key issues involved with malting, brewhouse operations, fermentation, downstream processing, and product quality. It is comprehensive yet presents the essential science of brewing in a useful and applied manner, without the minutiae of a research monograph. Readers get the details they need to improve their knowledge and understanding of the entire brewing process—from barley to beer. Industry newcomers and seasoned brewing professionals will find this to be a versatile sourcebook.

In Scientific Principles of Malting and Brewing, the author reveals the approach taught in his university courses on malting and brewing science. Bamforth is a well-respected brewing educator and Chair of the Department of Food Science and Technology at the University of California, Davis. His many years of experience teaching on this topic are evident in his clear and concise approach to every chapter. His influential research on beer quality, including the stability of beer flavor and foam, make him a particularly qualified expert. With this strong background, he has written a book that fills a significant need for an up-to-date teaching text to help prepare students for technical careers in brewing science. In an effort to make this book affordable for university students, it is offered at reduced-rate textbook pricing for course adoptions for $49.95 each. Please contact ASBC to order for courses.
