|Contribution||a. Published book on wine diseases.|
|Notes||Relevant to germ theory only to the extent that aberrant fermentation is disease. Note from Carter: Reported that all wine disorders are accompanied by specific ferments, e.g. souring is always accompanied by the fungus Mycoderma aceti. Thus organisms are necessary for spoilage. Important practical implication: prevent organisms, prevent spoilage. See 1863. In this book, Pasteur published his method for preservation of wine, i.e. pasteurization. At least some information had been presented in the previous year; see 1865.|
