"With the explosion of craft breweries all over the world and also in South Africa, this book is a useful guide to brewers starting out in their careers. As the editor, Chris Smart, states, “the purpose is to provide a very practical content of immediate value to anybody who hopes to establish a craft brewery or is in the early stages of producing beer for sale”. Science and engineering concepts are used to explain where necessary, but I found the book to be easy to read and not overly technical or jargon-rich." --FST
