Preface

The following Treatises by Professor Thomson, contributed to the last Edition of the Encyclopaedia, Britannica, having been considered by Brewers and Distillers as containing the most valuable information on the subjects of their manufactures, the Publishers have been persuaded to print them in a separate volume. They have likewise added to the scientific works of Dr Thomson, Instructions by a practical Brewer, on the methods of brewing Porter and Ales, both in the English and Scottish manner, which, they hope, will render the book a valuable acquisition, not only to the extensive manufacturer, but to those also who brew only for their own consumption.

Edinburgh, August 1, 1849.
