Dave Line was a British beer author. An electrical engineer by profession, he is regarded as a pioneer in homebrewing as a pioneer in homebrewing during the 1970s because at the time homebrewing as a hobby was in its infancy.
At the time people were not getting satisfactory results, because they were using substandard ingredients, low quality syrups or beer kits, baker's yeast, and were not technically informed in the processes of brewing. He advocated the use of proper brewer's yeast, whole-grain barley malts, whole hops, and even went into simple analysis and comparison of the chemistry of water used for brewing different beers, and rudimentary water treatment. He also encouraged sterilization and proper cleaning of equipment.
He was a regular contributor to Amateur Winemaker, and in a decade, probably had more recipes published than anyone else. He passed away in 1979 at the age of 37.
