Fermentation kinetics info resources?

  1. Nov 22, 2011 #1
    Howdy all,

    Recently I have dabbled in homebrewing mead and it turned out... drinkable at best. I am making another batch soon and want to improve my methods. I am a nuclear engineering student, so naturally I feel that something as personal, liberating, and chemically miraculous as homebrewing should be reduced to a system of simplified coupled differential equations. Sad, I know.

    Can anyone point me to a resource (article, presentation, textbook) that describes fermentaion mathematically?
