“Scientific Principles of Malting and Brewing addresses the entire brewing scenario, from crops in the field to beer in the bottle. The author has meticulously explained each process in various chapters.”—Beverage and Food World

In Scientific Principles of Malting and Brewing, the author reveals the approach taught in his university courses on malting and brewing science. Bamforth is a well-respected brewing educator and Chair of the Department of Food Science and Technology at the University of California, Davis. His many years of experience teaching on this topic are evident in his clear and concise approach to every chapter. His influential research on beer quality, including the stability of beer flavor and foam, make him a particularly qualified expert. With this strong background, he has written a book that fills a significant need for an up-to-date teaching text to help prepare students for technical careers in brewing science. In an effort to make this book affordable for university students, it is offered at reduced-rate.
