I just made the Easy I.P.A. Waiting on it to finish fermenting before I’ll taste it. The only thing I wished was different was the SG, OG, and FG. I’m not for sure if I’m hitting the right numbers or not. It is really a guess.

Straightforward brewing instructions, season-inspired small batch brew recipes (with five gallon ingredient lists to boot), what’s not to like about this guide?

I am totally enthralled with this book. I am a petite woman and I do not want to make 5 gallon batches of beer on my deck or in my garage. It is hard and dangerous hauling around 6 gallon glass jugs of beer. I do love making small batches of beer in my kitchen on my stove. I am tired of making mediocre EXTRACT beers. This book is what I’ve been waiting for. All recipes are 1 gallon ALL-GRAIN. The majority of the recipes use a couple different hops and easy to find grains. Each recipe gives you the choice of dry or liquid yeast. A lot of the recipes use fresh fruit, and/or spices, and are primed with honey or maple syrup. As soon as I got this book I made the Everyday IPA. It is now bottled and will be ready to drink in a week or two.

There are a good two dozen or more beers I want to brew. The book is separated into seasonal sections. The Everyday IPA is a Spring beer. Other got-to-make beers are: the Grapefruit Honey Ale (Summer), Cranberry Wheat (Fall) and Chocolate Maple Porter (Winter). Other interesting recipes are the Apple Crisp Ale, Prohibition Ale (which uses raisins to prime the beer), Cardamom Ale, Grapes & Grain Ale, Pumpkin Dubble, Chestnut Brown Ale, Winter Wheat Ale, Dates & Honey Ale and the New Year Beer.

Each recipe has suggested food pairings. At the end of each seasonal chapter there are food recipes using beer from the book such as Beer Mustard, Lavender Shortbread with Honey-Beer Glaze, BBQ Beer Barbecue Sauce, Beer-Brined Pickles, and even Spent-Grain Dog Biscuits! There is an index, sources and glossary in the back.

Beware newbies – the book is sketchy on how to brew and gives you just the briefest of instructions. But there’s plenty of places online for all that how-to information (google How to Brew by John Palmer) and many, many books. Each recipe has a 5 gallon conversion for brewers who enjoy making larger batches. I am so thrilled to have a nice little book with lots of interesting recipes, all figured out for 1 gallon batches.
