By I. Campbell (auth.), F. G. Priest, I. Campbell (eds.)

During the latter a part of the final century and the early years of this century, the microbiology of beer and the brewing procedure performed a imperative function within the improvement of contemporary microbiology. a massive improve used to be Hansen's improvement of natural tradition yeasts for brewery fermentations and the popularity of alternative species of brewing and wild yeasts. the invention by way of Winge of the lifestyles cycles of yeasts and the chances of hybridization have been one of the first steps in yeast genetics with next far-reaching outcomes. Over an identical interval the contaminant micro organism of the fermentation industries have been additionally studied, principally encouraged by way of Shimwell's pioneering study and leading to the development of beer caliber. in the direction of the top of the century, the effect of brewing microbiology in the self-discipline as a complete is way less significant, however it keeps an important position in caliber insurance within the brewing undefined. Brewing microbiology has won from advances in different features of microbiology and has followed a number of the strategies of biotechnology. Of specific relevance are the advancements in yeast genetics and pressure development by means of recombinant DNA strategies that are swiftly changing the best way brewers view crucial microbiological elements of the method: yeast and fermentation.

The modem trend in fermentation, however, has been to replace 36 The biochemistry and physiology of yeast growth the open fermentation vessels (usually used where yeast is removed from the top of the vessel) with closed vessels. Closed (or covered) vessels are obviously more hygienic in operation since the fermentation is not exposed to the atmosphere and furthermore it is a relatively simple matter to arrange for them to be equipped with automatic cleaning-in-place (CIP) systems.
