I've heard Lewis' book is outstanding. Any feedback yet?


Of course, Technology Brewing and Malting by Kunze. The Gold Standard.

I always thought the gold standard is De Clerk. I want a pdf of that.

I guy I know who went to UCD told me it was the gold standard. Good enough for me.

I own A Textbook of Brewing by De Clerck. It's great!
Not a PDF though and I'd be way too lazy to scan it...

I haven't read Technology Brewing and Malting but I wouldn't be surprised if it'd be considered the current gold standard since it's more current and that's what they use at Siebel for the main textbook and probably UCD too.

Malting and Brewing Science - Hough, Briggs, Stevens, Young (1982) - Malting and Brewing Science - Google Books

Unfortunately, it is only a preview and starts with chapter 12.

Handbook of Brewing, Second edition edited by Fergus G. Priest and Graham G. Stewart is loaded of information, especially on hop chemistry.

Intended for microbrewry, with Steam Calculation and things like that.

Covers any part of the brewing process, beer history to quality control.

"Brewing Yeast and Fermentation" is by far the best resource I have come across -- highly technical, but at the same time extremely practical. Based almost entirely on peer-reviewed published research. "Essays in Brewing science" is very good. "Brewing" by Lewis is great for some topics, but he frequently gets caught up on particulars of chemistry which aren't always apposite to brewing. "Brewing" by Ian Hornsey is very good, sufficiently technical but not to the point of being tedius. "Handbook of Brewing," Second edition edited by Fergus G. Priest and Graham G. Stewart is another nice resource. Next on my list is Fix, De Clerk, and "Malting and Brewing Science", though the latter two are going to be difficult to obtain. "New Brewing Lager Beer" seems like it would be a good book, but it seems to me to too prescriptive "x is bad, don't do it", and based upon the author's own beliefs, rather than on solid research.

I see this thread is largely dead, but...

Are there any books that are devoted to the mash process or chemistry? I'm going to assume that many of the books mentioned do so, but I haven't gotten to them yet. I'm reading Yeast by White and Zainasheff and Designing Great Beers by Davis. I'll probably pick up Radical Brewing or Brewing, Science and Practice next.

I'm not confident that our mashes are going well and I'd like to focus my learning on that topic next. Thanks.
