Awful style, absolutely no character compared to the Hops and Water books in the series, information is presented in the most disorganized manner.
Some parts read like a copy-paste from a lifeless formal instruction manual.
Most information is presented in simplistic qualitative terms that you can find on any homebrewing forum.
Don't waste your time on this book.

A thorough text on the use of yeast for making beer. I will be referencing this book frequently when designing new beer recipes and in selecting yeasts for existing recipes I want to tweak.

There are so many considerations when it comes to yeast choice, health, growth, starters, handling, storage and on and on and on. This book has it all. Read it. It will make you a better brewer.

This book is the insight into the magical wold of yeast and it's importance on the flavors of beer. It's a hands on guide to understanding the techniques every craft brewer should know to get the most out of yeast. Step by step instructions are given on many ways to increase the quality and vitality of the yeast and affected brews. Much of the end tests are far too complicated (with additional chemicals and equipment) for the home brewer but this book should be on the desk of every nano,micro brewer!

The Brewing Elements series is a great addition to any serious home brewers library - and Chris White's book on Yeast is no exception. It is packed full of interesting and practical advice about yeast, yeast management and cultivation.

There is a good blend of technical information but it is accessible enough that anyone who had more than a passing interest in improving their home brew could benefit from and expand on over time.

If you've moved on from John J Palmers How to Brew and want to start to acquire more knowledge (on Yeast) this would be a good place to start.

Useful text for the homebrewer and well translated to e-book format for reading on my kindle fire. Good information regarding managing fermentation for optimal performance. Would have given 5 stars if it had included a more robust discussion of say 20 commonly used yeast strains with a discussion of how the strains tend to respond to key fermentation variables.

...to know how yeast really affects your beer and to know why at the end it tastes like that. I purchased it because i'm an advanced homebrewer seeking a tighter control in my brewing. With this now I understand the importance of the yeast (before I payed more attention to my grainbill or hops) and what to spect with the different strains, temperatures, pitching rates, time of beer exposure to it... A whole new world! I recomend it to everyone that wants more control on the brewing and understanding of "why it tastes like bubblegum, sour or wonderfully dry!"

I've been brewing for many years now and Yeast had always remained the most mysterious ingredient to me. This book answered virtually all of my questions (where does a pure culture come from? How to keep mutations from occurring in that culture? What exactly do the yeast need to thrive? How do the yeast metabolize the sugars? Proper pitching rates, temperatures, and most importantly off flavor trouble shooting) are answered here. A must read for serious home brewers who are looking to round out their knowledge on (arguably) the most important ingredient.
