The preface indicates that this book is about lagers and ales lagers are just "the culmination of the brewing theories of all European brewing traditions" , I think the English and the Belgians might not agree with that, but lager brewing does tend to be the most precise in its technique because light lagers have such a delicate flavor. That said there are some techniques that are used for ales, but really aren't for lagers that this book completely skips like dry hopping. In the ingredient section each chapter covers both scientific information as well as loads of information on practical things that many brewers may not know how to do. The barley and malt chapters cover some really interesting topics like interpreting a malt analysis sheet. Malt analysis is very important if you want to do things like decide when to do a protein rest.

Not for beginners. Quite technical and, when used in conjunction with more recent sources, quite useful. Mar 12, Josh Skogman rated it liked it. This book is full of very detailed info for the serious brewer. I consider myself an average home brewer, and found some of the contents interesting while other parts were way over my head.
It is a great reference book Good info, but to just sit and read is like reading an encyclopedia. Feb 22, Ryan rated it liked it Shelves: brewing. A bit dated, a bit dry it seems sufficiently technical for a professional brewer , but surprisingly comprehensive; information about lagering, secondary fermentation, lager yeast strains, krausening, decoction mashing, beech filtration, etc. Jan 29, Morgan rated it really liked it Shelves: brewing.
While this book repeats much of the content of other popular home brewing books, I found it particularly useful for understanding the process and technical aspects of decoction mashing and lager fermentations, which are rarely addressed in other books. If you want to make German beers, this is the book to have.
Jan 19, Bill rated it did not like it. Compared to Plamer's book, this book is almost unreadable. It's mainly geared toward small microbreweries and I think they added the word 'homebrewers' to expand the marketing potential of a poorly readable book. Sep 20, Andrew rated it it was amazing. Great information on every aspect of brewing. Section on lagering surprise surprise is especially good. Well researched, intermediate level technicality, but a beginner could follow.
