Summary

Summary

This book expertly explains the nature of hops, their origins, and how brewers maximise their positive attributes throughout the brewing process. Stan Hieronymus starts with the basics of hop chemistry, then examines the important role farmers play and how brewers can best choose the hops they need. He provides fundamental information about and descriptions of over 100 hop varieties, along with 16 recipes from around the world, including from top U.S. craft brewers. Hieronymus explores hop quality and utilisation, with an entire chapter devoted to dry hopping. Throughout, Hieronymus' research and accessible writing style educate the reader on the rich history of hops and their development into an essential ingredient in beer.
