Brewing is the ultimate biotechnology, using living organisms to produce a valuable resource for the enjoyment of its consumer. The complex science behind this process has been distilled into a new edition of the ASBC bestseller Scientific Principles of Malting and Brewing: a guide to fundamental malting and brewing science and technologies.
Charles W. Bamforth, author of the successful first edition, is joined by coauthor Glen P. Fox in this extended and reorganized book. As internationally acclaimed scientists steeped in the worlds of malting and brewing, Bamforth and Fox explain the information in simple yet authoritative terms. The vast experience of these authors—experts in fields ranging from cereals to production brewing—offers an “insider” perspective on the material.
Users without a background in chemistry, microbiology, statistics, and other disciplines can absorb the knowledge in this book and confidently apply it to malting and brewing. The authors build from the basics, guiding the reader from atoms to raw materials to processes all the way to the color, clarity, foam, and flavor of beer. Nearly 200 photos and diagrams—about half of which are new to this edition—facilitate ready understanding of the detailed principles, and a comprehensive index helps users easily find specific topics throughout the text.
This book is intended for anyone intent on pursuing or maintaining a serious career in the brewing and associated industries. It is suitable for novices, such as students of malting, brewing, and biotechnology, as well as beer consumers with a nascent interest in science or a desire to break into the industry. And because it documents how training can be applied around the clock in the conversion of barley and hops, through the agency of yeast, into beer, it will equally benefit professionals, such as brewing chemists, biochemists, and microbiologists, as well as industry suppliers and technical staff in malt houses and breweries.
No matter your experience level, Scientific Principles of Malting and Brewing, Second Edition, will help clarify both your beer and the science behind it.
