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.
As a bit of a chemistry nerd, I really enjoyed this book. For those who don't have a chemistry background it may be a little bit overwhelming at times but probably no less interesting.
I would like to take issue with the publisher however, as there are several errors in the printed text. Most of these errors are typographical by nature and as innocuous as any such error can be in a published work but for a work which markets itself as a serious study of brewing science it really is important to be reliable. When such errors relate to scientific information they can affect the delivery of information and markedly detract from the reader's overall impression of professionalism and validity.
Despite this, I strongly recommend this work as a most thorough and entertaining explanation of brewing science.

Very technical. But the average homebrewer can find good information of brewing chemistry and how to avoid off flavors etc.Published on July 9, 2014 by Wise Pharaoh's Wife-"Style"
I would not get this book if you're new to brewing. The science is a bit more in depth than what is usually needed for starting homebrewing. Read morePublished on March 15, 2014 by Devin Fitzgerald
