I read a lot. Around 200+ books a year. Sometimes lots more. In January 2018 alone I read 86. (No consulting work last and this month. typical this time of year unless I want to work in Asia.) I constantly get really annoyed when food/beverages are discussed in a novel and it is just total bull. No research done, just assumptions.
Today I was re-reading a series of sci fi books and the science was actually pretty solid until making liquor was discussed. The author was totally clueless. He was talking about making ethanol and aging it into whiskey, using charcoal. Not charred wood, but charcoal. I remember being pissed off the first time I read the book, but this time I was livid. I actually went to the authors website and wrote him TWO emails. And gave my email to use as a future resource on foods and beverages.
Anyone else get annoyed at stuff like this?
