This book, the first in a series entitled "Practical Guides for Beer Quality," offers an easy-to-read yet comprehensive and authoritative description of all the factors that impact the quality and quantity of foam on beer.

FOAM guides the reader through the many factors that impact foam, culminating in a step-by-step explanation of how problems with too much or too little foam can be interpreted and rectified. The book takes the reader through the role that foam plays in perceived quality, the factors that impact foam, and the contributions that all stages from barley to dispense make to foam. It also describes how to measure head stability and cling and diagnose problems with over foaming (gushing). The author has conducted detailed research studies on foam for more than 30 years and indeed has been referred to as the “Pope of Foam.”

The book might be justly called a “foam owner's manual” and will be of interest to brewers; suppliers to the brewing industry; scientists studying foam; home brewers; beer servers in bars, restaurants, and hotels; and any serious lover of beer. It will enhance courses in malting and brewing science and any class where foaming and bubbles are covered.

Foam was selected as the textbook for the course Beer Quality: Foam offered online by UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education. Visit the course webpage to learn more about this course and other courses based on books in the series Practical Guides for Beer Quality.
