In 1876, Louis Pasteur published his ground-breaking volume, Études sur la Bière, soon translated into English as Studies On Fermentation. The book changed the course of brewing during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, representing a huge leap forward in the scientific understanding of the processes involved in beermaking. Brewers around the globe put Pasteur's findings to work in their breweries, and thus plunged the industry headlong into the modern era.
In tribute to Pasteur's tremendous contributions to brewing science, Studies On Fermentation has been reprinted exactly as it appeared when first released in English, complete with all of Pasteur's illustrations. An original 1879 edition was digitally scanned, professionally enhanced and reproduced in a hard cover format.
