In this issue, we take a look at technical brewing topics such as lautering, spectrophotometers, and quality checklists to help brewers produce the best beer possible. In addition, we examine the phenomenon of powdery mildew on hop plants; brewers who own brewpubs overseas; and the Dutch beer scene.
