Brew Chem 101
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 non-technical language and a highly readable style, explanations of the chemical reactions at each stage of the brewing process and how to avoid potential problems, and a primer on beer tasting and judging. 117 pages.
