By George Fix.
The science and mystique of what makes a truly great beer is explored with logic and order. This second edition is a comprehensive and technical study that bridges the gap between professional brewing texts and standard texts on chemistry, biochemistry, and thermodynamics. There have been significant recent developments in brewing science, especially in fermentation and oxidation. Dr. Fix also looks at the 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.
