Both beer and distilled beverages are characterised by the presence of alcohol, which is always derived by means of fermentation. In order to produce the vast variety of quality beers and distilled beverages, a very large array of fermentative organisms is utilised, either as pure cultures or mixed cultures. On the one hand the fermentation can be managed through careful selection of suitable strains, while on the other hand the fermentation can be managed through providing the most suitable conditions under which the fermentation can be carried out.
This Special Issue of Fermentation aims to disseminate recent innovative research regarding all aspects of fermentation as it applies to the brewing and distilling industries, as well as authoritative reviews that compile information from previously published material. Topics include (and are not limited to): Yeast and bacterial physiology as it applies to brewing and distilling; starter culture management; mixed culture fermentations; spoilage; spontaneous fermentations; yeast genetics; strain improvements; process intensification; fermentation vessels (e.g., wood vs. stainless steel); fermentation technology; fermentation management; hygiene and sanitation; etc.
