Ok, so I've graduated with a degree in chemical engineering, and I'm just finishing my first semester of a PhD program in chemical and life science engineering. I'm also putting the finishing touches on an electric keggle system. And now i want more!
Specifically i want to go about brewing a bit more scientifically then your average brewer. I have aims toward quality control and consistency of flavor as well as evaluation of new ingredients, and a large desire to start experimenting with yeast (in petri dishes, like new strain development/isolation). The lab shots during Brew Masters have me twitching to know more about the lab work involved in Beer R&D. So, the question...
Where can i find more info on brewing laboratory procedures? what they do, how they do it, etc. How about texts on yeast and this type of quality control/flavor evaluation? Not sure i have a specific goal, more like looking for inspiration :-)
