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.
