The science and mystique of what makes truly great beer is explored with logic and order. The long-awaited second edition of the George Fix classic looks at ways in which fundamental science impacts brewing. This comprehensive and highly technical study bridges the gap between professional brewing texts and standard texts on chemistry, biochemistry and thermodynamics. Recent major developments in brewing science have been significant, especially in the most crucial determinants of beer flavour quality -- fermentation and oxidation. Dr Fix pays special attention to basic chemical pathways used by bacteria and wild yeast, chemical changes that occur during malting, and the application of gas laws to carbonation and dispensation. This is a book no brewer should be without.

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; microbiology and contaminants; and finishing, packaging, and flavor. The second edition gives more emphasis to engineering and technological aspects, with the three new chapters on water, engineering and analysis. Brewing, Second Edition, is both a basic text for traditional college, short, and extension courses in brewing science, and a basic reference for anyone in the brewing industry.

Written by one of the world's leading authorities and hailed by American Brewer as "brilliant" and "by a wide margin the best reference now available," Beer offers an amusing and informative account of the art and science of brewing, examining the history of brewing and how the brewing process has evolved through the ages. The third edition features more information concerning the history of beer especially in the United States; British, Japanese, and Egyptian beer; beer in the context of health and nutrition; and the various styles of beer. Author Charles Bamforth has also added detailed sidebars on prohibition, Sierra Nevada, life as a maltster, hopgrowing in the Northwestern U.S., and how cans and bottle are made. Finally, the book includes new sections on beer in relation to food, contrasting attitudes towards beer in Europe and America, how beer is marketed, distributed, and retailed in the US, and modern ways of dealing with yeast.

It is believed that beer has been produced, in some form, for thousands of years - the ancient Egyptians being one civilization with a knowledge of the fermentation process. Beer production has seen many changes over the centuries, and Brewing, Second Edition brings the reader right up to date with the advances in the last decade. Covering the various stages of beer production, reference is also made to microbiology within the brewery and some pointers to research on the topic are given. Written by a recently retired brewer, this book will appeal to all beer-lovers, but particularly those within the industry who wish to understand the processes, and will be relevant to students of food or biological sciences.

Discover the science of beer and beer making Ever wondered just how grain and water are transformed into an effervescent, alcoholic beverage? From prehistory to our own time, beer has evoked awe and fascination; it seems to have a life of its own. Whether you're a home brewer, a professional brewer, or just someone who enjoys a beer, The Chemistry of Beer will take you on a fascinating journey, explaining the underlying science and chemistry at every stage of the beer making process. All the science is explained in clear, non-technical language, so you don't need to be a PhD scientist to read this book and develop a greater appreciation for the world's most popular alcoholic drink. The Chemistry of Beer begins with an introduction to the history of beer and beer making. Author Roger Barth, an accomplished home brewer and chemistry professor, then discusses beer ingredients and the brewing process. Next, he explores some core concepts underlying beer making. You'll learn chemistry basics such as atoms, chemical bonding, and chemical reactions. Then you'll explore organic chemistry as well as the chemistry of water and carbohydrates. Armed with a background in chemistry principles, you'll learn about the chemistry of brewing, flavor, and individual beer styles. The book offers several features to help you grasp all the key concepts, including: Hundreds of original photographs and line drawings Chemical structures of key beer compounds Glossary with nearly 1,000 entries Reference tables Questions at the end of each chapter The final chapter discusses brewing at home, including safety issues and some basic recipes you can use to brew your own beer. There's more to The Chemistry of Beer than beer. It's also a fun way to learn about the science behind our technology and environment. This book brings life to chemistry and chemistry to life.

This book is an original and comprehensive examination of brewing from the perspective of a real brewer. The book departs from the traditional sequential approach to pursue brewing in the manner a brew master approaches the process. It is structured to look down the length of the process for causes and effects. Each essay discusses a problem, a beer component, or a flavor, by following how this one item arises and how it changes along the way. This is a crucial feature to bear in mind when reading the book because this organization brings together information and ideas that are not usually presented side-by-side.

Standards of Brewing covers an essential topic for today’s brewers: consistent production of quality product. With distribution expanding and competition intense, no brewery can afford to release product for distribution unless it is confident the beer will meet consumer expectations-even months after production. Bamforth covers the principles and practices of brewery quality so that brewers can establish or audit their own programs and procedures for producing consistent, high quality beer.

Covers different stages of brewing from raw materials, including the chemistry of hops and the biology of yeasts, through individual processes such as mashing and wort separation to packaging, storage and distribution. This book discusses key quality issues such as flavour and the chemical and physical properties of finished beers. Brewing is one of the oldest and most complex technologies in food and beverage processing. Its success depends on blending a sound understanding of the science involved with an equally clear grasp of the practicalities of production. Brewing: science and practice provides a comprehensive and authoritative guide to both of these aspects of the subject. After an initial overview of the brewing process, malts, adjuncts and enzymes are reviewed. A chapter is then devoted to water, effluents and wastes. There follows a group of chapters on the science and technology of mashing, including grist preparation. The next two chapters discuss hops, and are followed by chapters on wort boiling, clarification and aeration. Three chapters are devoted to the important topics of yeast biology, metabolism and growth. Fermentation, fermentation technologies and beer maturation are then reviewed, followed by a consideration of native African beers. After a discussion of brewhouses, the authors consider a number of safety and quality issues, including beer microbiology and the chemical and physical properties of beer, which contribute to qualities such as flavour. A final group of chapters cover packaging, storage, distribution and the retail handling of beer. Based on the authors' unrivalled experience in the field, Brewing: science and practice is a standard work for the industry.
