Wolfgang Kunze, born in 1926, is a qualified brewer and maltster and studied brewing engineering at the VLB Berlin. For 38 years, he was a teacher and head of the Dresden Brewer’s School and introduced generations of young brewers and maltsters to the art of beer brewing. His comprehensive knowledge and didactic experience, which he vividly conveys in his book, have made “Technology Brewing and Malting” over the last 50 years to what it is today: a standard work worldwide.
