Certainly does.  Includes a section from a gentleman's brewing manual where
they admonish the brewer to not let the Ladies of the house hold to bathe in

tempting to the Ladies.

It's been more than a year since I read this book, but I recall that it
had a chapter or sub-chapter dedicated to the cleaning and maintenance of
wooden barrels. Tuns, coppers, and coolships are similarly treated in
the book. Bibliographic information follows:
