My sabbatical is coming to an end and I will soon re-join the workforce in my full capacity as Computer Scientist. I learned a lot during these last 9 months — I even acquired a certificate in start-up brewing from Brewlab (a course I highly recommend).
So it’s time to put it all together.
It’s a big subject, therefore I split it as follows
- Boiling and Cooling
It surely won’t be comprehensive enough to equal the amount of literature that is out there, especially the brilliant works by Narziss, Esslinger and Kunze – but it summarises my current state of knowledge and should give very good results for the dedicated home brewer.
In a few years time I’ll probably look back at these writings and laugh at some of my wrong assumptions or blatant mistakes. Nevertheless, the Beers I produced using this method are quite good and pretty close to the originals I had in mind (which is –goes without saying– Augustiner Edelstoff and the Hofbräu Oktoberfest – my two favorite Bavarian brews!).
