Most modern home brewers are familiar with the hydrometer-a calibrated scientific instrument commonly used to calculate the alcoholic content of beer. While the hydrometer is believed to have been invented in the late 4th century, its calibration for the manufacture of beer did not occur until the late 18th century. John Richardson's book The Philosophical Principles of the Science of Brewing popularized the use of the hydrometer, more accurately known as the "saccharometer," in brewing. Richardson provides valuable insight into important developments in 18th-century brewing technology; technology that has changed relatively little since. This classic reprint of this rare book is a interesting and valuable addition to the resource library of anyone seriously interested in historical brewing or homebrewing.

Some ten years. have passed since the publication of the first edition of Malting and Brewing Science, a period of many changes. As before, this edition is an aid to teaching, particularly the MSc course in Brewing Science at Birmingham University, but it is also aimed at the requirements of other students of the science of malting and brewing throughout the world. In general, technological aspects are covered more fully in this new edition, although not malting and brewing practices that are exclusive to Britain. Nevertheless, the amount of technological information available is too great to be comprehensively covered iln one book. Scientific principles and infor mation receive more attention, but for details of analytical procedures reference should be made to the most recently published material of the Ameri can Society of Brewing Chemists, the European Brewery Convention and the Institute of Brewing. The new edition appears as two volumes because a single one would be inconveniently bulky. The first volume outlines the entire process and leads from barley, malting and water to the production of sweet wort. In the second volume there are chapters on hops and hop products, production of hopped wort, fermentation,yeast biology and all aspects of beer qualities and treatment. Decisions about the units of measurement proved difficult; metric units commonly used in the Industry are given and in parentheses are equivalents in degrees Fahrenheit, Imperial measures and UK barrels. Considerable information on equivalents is given in a special section in each volume.

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.

Mastering Brewing Science is a comprehensive textbook for the brewing industry, with coverage of processes, raw materials, packaging, and everything in between, including discussion of essential methods in quality control and assurance. The book equips readers with a depth of understanding to deal with problems and issues that arise during production of beer from start to finish, as well as statistical tools for continual quality improvement. Brewery operations, raw material analysis, flavor, stability, cleaning, and methods of quality control, as well as the underlying science, are discussed in detail. The successful brewing professional must produce beer with high standards of quality, consistency, efficiency, and safety. With a focus on quality and on essential applications of biology, chemistry, and process control, Mastering Brewing Science places emphasis on troubleshooting and reader understanding. It is the ideal learning tool for all brewing programs or as a resource for current industry professionals. Features of Mastering Brewing Science include: Understanding through application. All key principles of science are applied to the brewing process, facilitating a better understanding of both. Check for Understanding. Each chapter includes a set of problems and questions that reinforce understanding of the material. Problem-solving. Several chapters conclude with practical case studies from real-world brewing experiences to further develop concepts through application of problem-solving skills. Comprehensive. Presented in the logical order of the brewing process, the book covers all aspects of raw materials, wort preparation, fermentation, conditioning, and packaging. Richly illustrated. Hundreds of unique, full-color illustrations, ranging from micrographs of spoilage bacteria to the inner workings of a beer keg, supplement clearly-written text, making this book easy to understand and appealing to the reader. Emphasis on Quality. Covers the underlying science and essential methods in quality control with discussion of data management and experimental statistics to ensure consistency in beer production. Safety. Safety notes for brewing operations prepare the reader for a culture of safety at the workplace. Glossary. A detailed and authoritative glossary with over 1,700 entries sets the standard for beer and brewing terminology. References. Each chapter includes key references to the primary and secondary literature, acquainting the student with fundamental sources of brewing science.
