5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 13 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
Well, what an excellent read! After craft brewing at home for 21 years I'm now "plating out" and "sloping" like the best of them! Home kitchen has turned into a yeast lab! I have saved more than the cost of the book by culturing my yeasts only after a couple of months.
A most informative book; a must for the seriously geeky craft brewers who particularly want to move on from dry yeasts into a whole new world of real brewery yeasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book without too much science 21 Nov 2011
By Robert
Format:Paperback
This is a great book for any level of brewer. It takes you through the basics for brewing beer at home, from starting and maintaining a yeast farm all the way up to what you would need to run a professional brewery, including procedures and equipment.
We use this as a constant reference and now have many of our favourite yeasts on slants in the fridge!
This is definitely not a text book, but a very practical book for hands on brewers, which suits the hobby/profession perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT BOOK! 19 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
A really good book! Very well written and containing a lot of valuable information about the fascinating world of brewing yeast. The author has also included how to perform both simple tests as well as very complex ones using specific lab equipment. It is also worth noting the section about how to set up your own lab.
However, the only downside is that the writer, being the owner of White Labs (one of the world's principal producers of brewing yeast), cannot resist promoting his own products by discouraging the reader from experimenting with his own yeast slurries; although admittedly yeast is a very delicate organism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking me to the next level 22 Feb 2014
By Panda
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I started with Brewferm kits, went to all grain, brewing Belgians and started double decocting because it sounded cool. I bought this, read it and now I'm rinsing my yeast and have just bought an aquarium kit to help oxygenate my wort. It's a fabulous and fascinating book, even if you don't brew. Yeast have to be one of the most wonderful lifeforms on Earth. I'm on my second read now, can't recommend it highly enough. It really is all about the yeast and how to look after the little ones. One thing which I found nice is that Chris chats constructively about using Wyeast, one of his competitors in the nice supportive way that seems to exist in the brewing community.
