Wood & Beer : A Brewer's Guide (Paperback) (Dick Cantwell & Peter Bouckaert)
About this item
The use of wooden vessels for storage, transportation, fermentation or aging of beer is deeply rooted in history. Brewing luminaries Dick Cantwell and Peter Bouckaert explore the many influences of wood as a vehicle for contributing tremendous complexity to beers fermented and aged within it. Brewers are innovating, experimenting and enthusiastically embracing the seemingly mystical complexity of flavors and aromas derived from wood. From the souring effects of microbes that take up residence in the wood to the character drawn from barrels or foeders, Wood & Beer covers not only the history, physiology, microbiology and flavor contributions of wood, but also the maintenance of wooden vessels.
