This is a book I wanted to write for a long time. I’ve written about yeast, spoken about yeast, and worked with yeast every day for what seems like forever. I wanted to put that information and more into one source. I began to write the book three years ago with my brother, Mike White. We put a lot of material together, but it was still missing something. When Jamil Zainasheff came into the project, the book really began to take shape. Jamil added a lot of information and a professional touch. He is not only a great writer and brewer but also a good friend. The Brewers Association was a natural place for me to publish the book; Ray Daniels was very helpful in the beginning, then Kristi Switzer took over and has done a great job. I want to thank the people who contributed or reviewed material: Neva Parker, Lisa White, Troels Prahl, Mike White, Sharon Fernandez, Liz Strohecker, Lee Chase, Yuseff Cherney, Dan Drown, and Craig Duckham. I also want to thank the many people who have supported the book, given me information, or helped in other ways: Jamie Reyes, John Schulz, Tomme Arthur, Jack White, Justin Crossly, Saskia Schmidt, John White, Tobias Fischborn, Graeme Walker, Sharon Heredia, Jay Prahl, Meg Falbo, Pam Marshall, Michael Lewis, Randy Mosher, Betsy Komives, Barbara Maisonet, Joanne Carilli–Stevensen, Lyn Kruger, the Maynard A. Amerine Viticulture & Enology Room at the University of California at Davis Shields Library, where I did most of my writing, Chris Boulton and David Quain for their great yeast book Brewing Yeast & Fermentation and personal discussions, Brew Your Own magazine, Zymurgy magazine, and New Brewer for some of the articles I have written, twenty-twos at Sudwerk Brewery, the many homebrewers and commercial brewers who have taught me so much, and of course my supporting and loving parents, Eric and Gina White. –Chris Whit Yeast is critical to beer, which makes it critical to brewers. Whether brewers fully realize it or not, yeast function involves much more than converting sugars into alcohol. More than any other fermented beverage, beer depends on yeast for flavor and aroma. Our goal was to write a yeast book that focused on the brewer’s perspective, and we quickly realized that there are just as many perspectives about yeast as there are brewers. While one brewer may have an interest in exploring native fermentation with wild yeast, another is concerned with maintaining a pure culture and minimizing unusual flavors, and yet another wants to know every detail of yeast biochemistry. In the end, we did our best to cover as much information as possible from a practical brewer’s view. This is not a book for the highly successful regional or larger brewer who already has multiple labs and a doctorate in microbiology. This is a book for those who are in the early stages of their love of yeast and what it can do for their beer. And when we use the word â€oebrewer,†we are talking not just about professionals but also hobbyists. Homebrewers (who call themselves craft brewers in some parts of the world) love the process of making beer as much as their professional counterparts do. Just like professional brewers, they range from eccentric to highly scientific, but all share a passion to create something out of nothing. Of course, brewing successfully on a professional level takes a great deal of dedication and financial risk that homebrewers can avoid. Whether you are a professional or hobbyist, brewing great beer requires both an artistic flair and, at times, the ability to think like an engineer. In fact, engineers seem to enjoy homebrewing more than most and have a passion for taking the hobby to its limit. Perhaps this is why many professional brewers began as homebrewers. They wanted to take their creativity and passion to the public. From the beginning, we decided that this would not be a yeast biology book. It is not a book on the basics of brewing, either. You should already know how to brew, and if you do not, get yourself a copy of How to Brew by John Palmer and come back to this book later. If your passion is for yeast biology, there are many fine yeast science books available as well. In some cases, we do discuss what is happening within the cell wall, but only to show how it affects your beer. We wanted to write a book that was accessible and useful for brewers of all experience levels. We cover yeast information from the basics to some advanced procedures and even beyond to some areas for further study. One thing we know about brewers is that they always want to know more, so we hope this book satisfies your interest, stretches your horizons, and has you thinking about yeast every time you think about beer.
