Don’t pass this book up! Well well well, looks like I just became a foraging, brewmaster, beer god. All thanks to Scratch Brewery for their amazeballs book they released. Thank the heavens for this, the father of the holy trinity of brew books that are necessary for all serious homebrewers.

Good information. A good read, highly recommended for the foraging, survivalist brewer. If you brew and live near a source for the ingredients listed in some of these recopies, good luck to you. I am planning on trying a few of these flavoring techniques on small batches of mead. Was not a waste of money for someone who wants a deeper knowledge of flavoring your home brew.
