Next Level Yeast Info
This book took my yeast game to a whole 'nother level. There is a lot of detailed information for the budding scientists among us, but even if you can't handle the math you will learn a lot about how to properly handle and utilize yeast to make better beer.

One of the best books for brewing
This book is a great resource, that every advanced homebrewer should have. Everyone uses yeast, you might as well figure out how to use it right. I had some pretty bad practices before reading this book.
Also a full outline of how to set up a yeast lab, which is great if you are trying to take your brewing to the next level.

Its a good book, but I had already read a lot of the material else where. The later half/third of the book is geared towards those who want to culture yeast, and for them this is a 10 star book. The authors explain why you need to maintain proper temperature and aerate the wort and make a starter. Worth reading.

Highly Recommended
If you are thinking that yeast is yeast is yeast, you are limiting your potential. This book is so informative that I literally started taking notes while reading it. Improved yeast utilization is probably one of the best ways to set yourself apart from the current field of brewers.

One of the best beer books for knowledge
Let me first start by saying I am a complete idiot. Now that is out of the way I can tell you that this book is great and pretty easy to understand. When I first got the book and read the prologue I was a little intimidated and overwhelmed, but shortly after getting through the first couple of chapters I really didn?t feel to down on myself. This is due to Chris and Jamil telling you first the scientific reason of why things happen and then breaking it down for the dummies like me. I feel now although still dumb I came out of that book with a lot more beer and specifically yeast knowledge. I also feel that now my homebrew has greatly improved from crap to midiocre. Great book guys

Amazing Amount of Information
I was amazed at how little I understood about yeast until I read this book.

Great for all levels of brewer: from beginner through commercial Brewmaster.
