The Botany of Beer: An Illustrated Guide to More Than 500 Plants Used in Brewing
From the Publisher: This book is a comprehensive and beautifully illustrated compendium of the characteristics and properties
of the plants used in making beer around the world. The botanical expert Giuseppe Caruso presents scientifically
rigorous descriptions, accompanied by his own hand-drawn ink images, of more than 500 species. For each one, he gives
the scientific classification, common names, and information about morphology, geographical distribution and habitat,
and cultivation range. Caruso provides detailed information about each plant’s applications in beer making, including
which of its parts are employed, as well as its chemical composition, its potential toxicity, and examples of beers and styles
in which it is typically used. The book also considers historical uses, aiding brewers who seek to rediscover ancient and
early modern concoctions.
