Beer: A Quality Perspective Authors: Charles Bamforth, Inge Russell, Graham Stewart 2008, Hardback, 304 pages. Price £100.00. Over the course of the past 125 years a wealth of research has been devoted to the topic of beer and the processes through which it is produced, namely malting and brewing. Because of this, beer is a highly consistent product and much is known about its quality attributes and how they can be delivered to delight the consumer.
This book details, with extensive referencing, the research that has been devoted to the range of quality attributes of beer. It is the first book to approach beer in this way and comprises an essential reference for anyone seeking an authoritative account of the science of beer appearance, flavour, stability and wholesomeness. Why is wine considered more sophisticated even though the production of beer is much more technologically complex? Why is wine touted for its health benefits when beer has more nutrition value? Charles Bamforth explores several paradoxes involving beer and wine, paying special attention to the culture surrounding each.
He argues that beer can be just as grown-up and worldly as wine and be part of a healthy, mature lifestyle. Beverage Industry Microfiltration Author: Nathan Starbard 2008, Hardback, 304 pages. Price £154.00.

This new book offers an easy-to-read yet comprehensive and authoritative description of all the factors that impact the quality and quantity of foam on beer. FOAM guides the reader through the many factors that impact foam, culminating in a step-by-step explanation of how problems with too much or too little foam can be interpreted and rectified. The book takes the reader through the role that foam plays in perceived quality, the factors that impact foam, and the contributions that all stages from barley to dispense make to foam. It also describes how to measure head stability and cling and diagnose problems with over foaming (gushing).
This book will be of interest to brewers, suppliers to the brewing industry, scientists studying foam, home brewers, beer servers in bars, restaurants and hotels, and any serious lover of beer. This book is a survey of authoritative textbooks that use quantitative methods to show the brewer how to translate the 'what's and why's' of brewing science into practical brewing applications that result in more consistent and higher quality beer. Equations and procedures that would receive short treatment in other texts are thoroughly explained through numerous examples of practical brewing applications. This book clearly illustrates how to apply sound science in the brewhouse.
A typical textbook might explain why it is important to have a certain level of calcium in the brewing water, a specific mash temperature, the correct yeast pitching rate, or a certain carbonation level, but may not explain how to achieve these results. This handbook shows the brewer how to determine what weight of gypsum will provide the desired ppm of calcium in the brewing water, what mash water temperature will achieve the desired mash temperature, what volume of yeast slurry will provide the desired yeast cell pitching rate, and what weight of priming will provide the desired carbonation level. An English translation of a classic German brewing manual. Compressed air systems are the third most important utility in breweries and are often the most misunderstood. This manual is for brewery operators and brewery engineers and is designed to provide an understanding of common compression systems and operation techniques in breweries.
The manual is extensively illustrated and covers key topics of common installations of modern compressed air systems, design applications, physical laws of compressed air, drying compressed air, and maintenance recommendations. The goal of this book is to illustrate the interconnecting aspects of a compressed air system and to show advantageous solutions to problems that arise when planning and operating such systems properly. The major food and beverage packaging materials - glass, metal, plastic, paper and paperboard - increasingly compete with each other in the battle over which type of container is optimal for a given application.
Increasingly, food and beverage product innovators need to consider which packaging material, or combination of materials, systems, pack designs and processes, will best serve the market and enhance brand value with due consideration of the sustainability credentials of the product and its packaging. The book focuses initially on the core issues of biodeterioration, product quality and shelf life, before discussing logistical packaging and the importance of integrating packaging with all the activities in a supply chain. Each of the main packaging materials is then examined in depth, alongside the techniques of active packaging and modified atmosphere packaging. Diacetyl plays an important role in the quality determination of foods and beverages.
This comprehensive publication on diacetyl formation in fermented foods and beverages explains the science behind diacetyl formation, how to control it, and how to measure it in food manufacturing processes. A change in a manufacturing method or the quality of a raw material can unexpectedly enhance an unpleasant diacetyl odour or remove a pleasant diacetyl flavour. It is no surprise that this compound and its control are of critical importance in today's manufacturing practices. The book covers diacetyl formation and control in beer, wine, sake, vinegar and dairy products. It is a must-have resource for anyone involved in a manufacturing process in which tracking and regulating diacetyl formation is imperative. This new book is a comprehensive resource on yeast vitality and viability, flocculation, malt influences on yeast performance, and the use of dried yeast in the brewing process. Editor Alex Speers brings together more than 20 leading international brewing scientists to give an update on the latest theoretical and applied findings regarding brewing yeast behaviour.
The book reflects updates to the conference presentations of the same name and is certain to serve as an important reference for those responsible for brewing yeast behaviour and its role when creating and producing high-quality well-crafted beers. FLAVOR is the second book in the 'Practical Guides to Beer Quality' series. FLAVOR offers an easy-to-read yet comprehensive and authoritative description on the science of flavor in brewing. It also addresses how factors such as raw materials and the process impact the flavor and aroma of beer. Through this book, the reader can systematically get to the root cause of flavor problems they are encountering and address quality issues. References and links provided in the book will also allow the reader to source methods and equipment that they can use in pursuit of flavor excellence.
