About half way through 'Malt', by John Mallett. So far it's a good mix of technical, practical, and historical information. The technical and scientific parts are a little heavy for me on the first read but I'll revisit later, no doubt over and over until it sticks. Also some great conversational inclusions from the Author with a variety of Brewers and Maltsters ranging from homebrewer, to microbrewer, and further on to the mass production and larger scale players.
It's prodding me to investigate more into Australian and more so my local varieties of Barley and malting.
Slowly working my way to getting the full series of these. The 'Yeast' installment was hard work and I put it down to rest the brain and read 'Malt'.
I've said it before but keep repeating it, "I wish I'd listened in Science lessons at school".
