American Practical Brewer and Tanner

Louis Pasteur's Studies on Fermentation
... Table of Contents

For many American brewmasters of the late 1800s, this 840-page monster volume was their absolute bible. First written in German by Julius E. Thausing, professor of the brewing school at Modling near Vienna, the book was translated into English in 1882 and expanded to include material tailored to the American brewing industry. A primary figure behind the English edition was New York brewing chemist Anton Schwarz, whose scientific research had earned him virtual guru status among beermakers. Heavily edited and expanded by Schwarz, this book is as close as the venerable scientist ever came to publishing his lifetime of brewing knowledge in book format. Instead, nearly all of his writings appeared in Der Amerikanische Bierbrauer (The American Brewer), the widely-read brewing journal Schwarz published in New York for more than 25 years.

Look inside the book

While an assortment of books had become available to brewers by 1882, The Theory and Practice of the Preparation of Malt and the Fabrication of Beer differed from other brewing manuals in two significant ways. First, this book was among the very few works adapted specifically for American brewers of lager beer. (The great majority of 19th century English-language brewing texts were published in London and were targeted at brewers of British-style beers.) As such, the book serves as a comprehensive and detailed record of the state of brewing science and practice inside the typical American brewery of 1882. Second, while many contemporary brewing texts confined their scope to the treatment of ingredients and the chemical processes of brewing, this book goes beyond those limits and delves deeply into the mechanical operation of the brewery. Virtually every piece of equipment and instrumentation at work inside the "modern" American brewing plant of the late 1800s is meticulously described and illustrated — the book contains more than 140 illustrations!

One of the many unique aspects of this book is its indepth discussion of the cooling methods of the lagering cellars. At the time of publication in 1882, beermaking in America was smack in the middle of what many historians have called the industry's greatest technological revolution: the conversion from natural ice cooling to artificial refrigeration. With the industry momentarily straddled between old and new methods, this book necessarily provided readers with a comprehensive discussion of the entire spectrum of cellar cooling technology, from old-fashioned "ice caves," to ice-making machinery, to early systems of artificial refrigeration. It is just one of many examples of this book's tremendous historical value. Be sure to see the Table of Contents below.

To make this important text more widely available to brewers, historians and beer enthusiasts, has reprinted the book, complete with all the original illustrations -- more than 140 of them! A first-edition copy was digitally scanned, professionally enhanced and reproduced in a hard cover format.
