This book has a line fairly early on, that says you should be a fairly competent brewer and have a basic knowledge of high school chemistry to understand the concepts of the book, this is true, I would say like most people buying this book I m sort of the former, but high school chemistry was quite a long time ago I read this book twice and there s still a bit of a chapter that I m not 100% on, but I ve learnt enough from the book to be pretty sure what I don t get isn t relevant for me, which is good enough There s a lot of explaining the chemistry and then helpfully there are the equations and quantities for whatever it might be in the tables and appendices, so you re fine even if some of it goes over your head I would recommend that you also get John Palmer s How to Brew, as some of the parts of that online helped me unde For a specific audience If you are thinking about your brewing Water this is the book to get.

Palmer] ✓ Water [mauritius PDF] read Online Æ The Brewing Process, Including How To read Water Reports, Troubleshooting, Its Flavor Contributions And The Treatment And Chemistry Of Brewing Water A Discussion Of Adjusting Water To Styles Of Beer, Residual Alkalinity, Waste Water Treatment And Research On Malt Color And PH Are Included My wife will read a good book and talk about the let down of the book being finished I cannot say that I have felt that for any book and then this one entered my life I am a Water nerd I took Water and wasteWater classes for my engineering and it was always presented in a technical level Palmer covers the Water chemistry in a technical way and then adds a few words to it that explains it in plain terms I hope others find this book just as good. In this series, Yeast was great, Hops ok, Water seemed less useful Perhapsimportant if I lived in a place where I needed to do . As a chemist and amateur home brewer, I found this book really entertained Some parts might be a little bit too technical for non chemist home brewers. õ Water õ Many things discussed are way over my knowledge, have to reread in the future.
Definitely the most challenging read of the seriesespecially if you do not have a background in microbiology like yours truly Will need to read a second time around to digest, I think There is some useful knowledge in it Especially if someone have no idea about chemistry exceeding highschool it may be really handy In many places it is writtenas a guide for a technician to follow without thinking too much, but I guess it was the purpose For me it was mostly boring as new information were scattered here and there within school knowledge I was expecting somethingscientific. Water turns out to be a rather dry subject This volume is both highly technical and highly informative, with much of it being quite dense. I was most interested in learning about brewing chemistry, specifically what adjustments to make to my Water and why, but other topics such as wasteWater management are no less fascinating Although the latter isn t a significant issue for homebrewers, it s good to be aware of industry challenges and possible solutions.
