5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for anyone interested in production of spirits or wine/beer products April 3 2009
By John - Published on Amazon.com
This is possibly the most comprehensive book on the subject of fermented beverages, but more than that also does a fantastic job on distilled spirits as well. From the chemistry of yeast fermentation, to the sugar content of various must substrates, to gas chromatographs of spirits after distillation it truly covers a massive amount of material.

I am a researcher, working in the spirits field and use this book regularly for guidelines on production of specific spirits, and to get an idea of the chemical constituents of various spirits.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book of its kind . Dec 17 2009
By T. Oneill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have spent thousands of dollars and built a sizable library over the years on the subject of spirits and their production with an eye on some day opening a cidery and or a small distillery. Without a doubt this is the most comprehensive and informative book I have found. This book approaches the subject matter in a scientific strait forward manner supplying details at a level necessary to anyone interested in entering the industry. If I had to pick one book on alcoholic beverage production this is the the book .It is the only book I have found that spells out the details without the reader feeling the authors either don't know the subject matter or they are intentionally omitting "trade secrets".
Mandatory reading for everyone in the business or thinking of getting in.
Note : I require all new employees to read this book. It is not cheap but worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Reference Feb. 6 2010
By Michael L. Workman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very comprehensive book on the production of wines, beer, and liquors. While I have a lot of texts on these subjects, this one covers lots of details and methodolgies specific to the production of Port, or Sherry for example. Both quantitative and qualitative information on each subject make the book unique in my opinion.

Excellent technical exposition
Well documented/complete reference lists.
The most information in one reference. But quite technical, you will need to take some time to understand some details..
