Written for the serious homebrewer, or those with a love of chemistry, Brew Chem 101 explores the areas of biochemistry and organic chemistry which apply to the brewing of beer. After covering the basic chemistry of beer, Janson explores each step of the process, including yeast, fermentation, mashing and sparging. Janson provides an engaging mix of nontechnical, readable language with diagrams of molecules and chemical reactions. Homebrewers are guaranteed to return again and again to the chapter on "Understanding and Avoiding Off Flavors". The final chapter on "Evaluating Beer" is sure to give a new, more scientific perspective on the standard evaluation checklist. This slim book packs a lot of punch! ( )

Here’s a class they didn’t offer at your school (although maybe you did some independent study of the subject). Here, in nontechnical language, is the real story of what’s going on in that bucket, carboy, and bottle. Does every brewer need to understand the chemistry involved in making beer? No. Will understanding it help every brewer make tastier beer? Absolutely.

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 nontechnical 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.… (more)
