About the Author
The late George Fix will be remembered as a pioneer in finite element methods and phase field methods, and for numerous other contributions to numerical analysis and applied mathematics. He also distinguished himself as the chairman of three mathematics departments and as a caring adviser and mentor to graduate students and junior mathematicians. George had a second concurrent and distinguished career as a practitioner and scientist in the brewing of beer. His own home brews won countless regional and national sanctioned competitions, and he was named Homebrewer of the Year in 1981 by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA). He wrote two books with his wife, Laurie, An Analysis of Brewing Techniquesand one of the Classic Beer Style SeriesMarzen, Oktoberfest and Vienna. In addition, he authored a scientific treatise titledPrinciples of Brewing Science, which has gone through two editions and which is a standard reference among amateur and especially professional brewers. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Recognition Award by the Association of Brewers in 1991 and the Ninkasi award by the AHA in 1997, the highest honors bestowed by these organizations at the time. He also served as a consultant for brewpubs and gave numerous lectures all over the country to aficionados of the brewing arts and sciences.

Except for the Brewing Microbiology book by Campbell, all of the above are big, expensive professional volumes, but they represent some of the best technical titles out there.
The book also has a nice introduction summarizing some of the important developments of the last 20 years that have made great improvements in beer, such as the use of modern double pre-evacuation bottle filters to cut down on cold-side oxygenation, the awareness of the staling effects of unsaturated long-chain aldehydes, the realization that hot-side aeration could contribute to this, and the importance of malting and non-enzymatic browning also in this process. These were all important developments that led to the modern low-oxygen brewhouse.
So overall, a very fine discussion of all these issues, and I'd actually give the book 4.5 stars if I could.
Overall, I think this book is an excellent distillation of more advanced (and lengthy) technical brewing books, and I will be recommending this to many of my friends involved in the AHA and BJCP.
