From the book description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

After studying this unusual, fruity beer style extensively in Belgium and at the University of California-Davis Department of Fermemtation Studies, Jean-Xavier Guinard presents his findings with detail and historical intrigue.


 

This book was originally released in 1990 as part of the Classic Beer Styles Series.  That series devotes an entire book to a single beer style and covers many beer styles.  For whatever reason this specific title went out of print.  Just this title, the rest, or most at least most of the rest of series, remained in print.  This led to some very interesting pricing.  Some sellers had stocks of brand new books.  Supply and demand took hold and it wasn’t uncommon to see this title sell for $100 or $200 or even more for a new copy.  Used copies were, and generally are, available for less, but generally very expensive, at least in my opinion.  Finally, in 2016, this title was released on the Kindle platform and now, generally sells for what I would call a reasonable price.  Get the current price below.

Kindle Edition books can be viewed on your Kindle Device or on free reader applications available for your iPhone, Android or Windows smart phone – and  for your web browser via Amazon’s Cloud Reader.  This dynamic link will take you to the appropriate reader for your current platform.

10/16/20 11 PM Central: As of this posting, this title is selling for $8.79 As outlined above print editions are rare and can be much more expensive.  Right now used copies start at $54 or so… Price and availability can change quickly Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

CellarScience CALI Dry Yeast 12g
This is a classic American California ale strain that works well with almost any beer. It has a long history of producing amazing results. It’s famous for its clean, neutral flavor and its ability to be used in any nearly any style. It’s the most popular strain in homebrewing and craft brewing because it allows malt and hops to shine. You can never go wrong with a California ale yeast. And you can pitch straight into your wort. CellarScience provides 12g of yeast per sachet, which is up to 9% more than any other brand of dry yeast. CALI has been sold to pro breweries for awhile but has just recently been packaged down to sachets for homebrewers!

Dosage: Use at a rate of 12 grams per 5-6 gallons of wort.

Direct Pitch OR Rehydrate: You can achieve great results simply by sprinkling CALI yeast onto the surface of the wort in your fermenter. However, proper hydration ensures a healthy fermentation and is highly recommended for beer with a starting gravity above 15°P (1.061 SG). To hydrate the yeast, first sanitize the yeast pack and a pair of scissors. Boil some tap water to sterilize it, and then cool it to 85-95°F (29-35°C). Use 10 grams (0.35 oz) of water per gram of yeast. Sprinkle the yeast onto the water, allow the slurry to stand undisturbed for 20 minutes, and then swirl. Use small amounts of wort to adjust the temperature of the slurry to within 10°F (6°C) of the wort temp before pitching. Ferment between 59-72°F (15-22°C).

Optimum Fermentation Temp: 59-72°F
Flocculation: Medium
Cell Count: 10 billion cells per gram
Similar Strains: WLP001, WY1056, US-05
