The perfect book for beginners, experts, and those in between When it comes to “how to” or books that in general are for self-teaching I like to leave reviews because its very hard to find a trustworthy source and also there is the idea that maybe a good review was “bought” or made by someone who is well versed in the subject.

BUY THIS BOOK!!! This should be every new (and perspective) homebrewer’s first purchase. And it should already be on all other brewers’s shelves.Chalie Papazian taught me how to brew in the late 80s in “The Complete Joy of Home Brewing.” That is now the Old Testament of the brewing bible and John Palmer’s “How to Brew” is the New Testament. At 582 pages, HTB is becoming quite a tome!

Homebrewing must have! Excellent book, well written. Definitely a must for any homebrewer. I have been brewing for 2 years, starting with extracts, then mini-mashing, and the last 6 months all grain. This book can help homebrewers at all levels. Stop scouring the interwebs and forums, its all laid out in this book. Many recipes laid out, and examples with each style/process.
