Publisher Comments:

Now every homebrewer can make better beer simply by knowing the basic science behind the components of beer and fermentation.

Do you need to have an advanced science degree to understand brewing chemistry? Certainly not! Any brewer, explains author Lee W. Janson, can understand the basic details of the life of a yeast or the careless steps that produce those annoying off-flavors — and learn how to avoid them.

Brew Chem 101 features:

— Nontechnical language and a highly readable style

— Explanations of the chemical reactions at each stage of the brewing process and how to avoid potential problems

— A primer on beer tasting and judging

Book News Annotation:

In nontechnical language, explains the chemical reactions of each stage of the brewing process and how to avoid potential problems that lead to the dreaded off-flavors, some so bad than even the proud brewer can taste them. A homebrewer, beer judge, and doctor of biological sciences and biochemistry, Janson also provides a primer on beer tasting and judging. Includes a glossary with pronunciation guides for anything that is not obvious.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
