Several sources claim that the Fix classic Principles of Brewing Science has several errors; however, there doesn't seem to be any comprehensive list of what is incorrect.

Where can I find a complete list of the errata for this book?

  • You know, there are two editions. Maybe the 2nd one is better?

Errata imply that the author and/or the publisher have accepted the criticism as valid error in the book. I don't think you're going to find that's the case, partially because the book has been out of print for a long time, and the author has passed away. You could always contact Kristi Switzer and ask her directly.

On a side note, can you cite any sources for your claim the book has several errors?

  • +1 good insight. I knew Mr Fix had passed on, but I didn't realise it required his consent to publish errata.
