Description
Beer: Tap into the Art and Science of Brewing is the first book that enables the nonspecialist to understand this science and technology. Charles Bamforth, an esteemed authority on brewing science, has written a witty and easy-to-understand volume that covers everything from the basis of selection of the best barley, hops, and yeast through to the composition of beer as it affects the taste, head, and wholesomeness of the finished drink. Set against a historical background, Bamforth traces the history of beer from ancient Babylon to today's sophisticated brewing centers, with forecasts of what the brewing industry will look like in the twenty-first century. Beer: Tap into the Art and Science of Brewing is an excellent introduction for those interested in the brewing business, including entrepreneurs entering the expanding world of micro- and "boutique" brewing, by a recognized authority within the industry. This book will appeal not only to those whose involvement in beer is restricted to its consumption but also to those with an interest in science who will appreciate the fascinating manner by which the chemistry and microbiology of brewing have been unraveled by scientists. It is also a fun and informative book that will satiate the thirst of all beer enthusiasts.
