Summary and Info
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 aspects of the subject.After an initial overview of the brewing process, the book reviews malts, adjuncts, and enzymes. Chapters explain water, effluents, and wastes; detail the science and technology of mashing, including grist preparation; discuss hops and are followed by chapters on wort boiling, clarification, and aeration. Additional chapters present information on yeast biology, metabolism, and growth; fermentation, fermentation technologies, and beer maturation; and 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 flavor. A final group of chapters cover packaging, storage, distribution, and the retail handling of beer.Based on the authors' unrivaled experience in the field, Brewing: Science and Practice will be a standard work for the industry.
