    This review is from: Brewing the World’s Great Beers: A Step-By-Step Guide (Paperback)

    I’ve been homebrewing since the 1990 (all-grain since 1994), and started out using Charlie Papazian’s The Complete Joy of Homebrewing. Charlie can wax poetic about the joys of homebrew, but he’s pretty fuzzy on the details – and good homebrew is all about the little details.

    This is where Mr. Miller’s book comes in handy. This book is broken up into three sections, which are basically step-by-step guides for the novice, intermediate, and advanced homebrewer. It may come off as “uptight” or “anal-retentive” or “paranoid,” but if you want to brew award-winning beer, you MUST sweat the details.

    There are recipes for brewing standard beer styles, as the title suggests, but the real strength of this book is in its concise, practical approach to proper brewing procedure. Personally, I haven’t used any of his recipes, but I always insist on devising my own anyway – that’s the fun part, and once you learn the correct procedure you can focus entirely on the more creative aspect – recipe formulation.

    The quality of my homebrew took a big step forward once I used this book, and I’ve gone on to win several awards with them. After you get the advanced brewing section down, pick up Greg Noonan’s New Brewing Lager Beer – it’s a great advanced source for improving your wort production, for both ales and lagers, but for beginning to intermediate brewers, I can’t recommend Brewing the World’s Great Beers highly enough.

    Good Primer on Homebrewing, July 26, 2001

    This book was given to me as a gift, and it helped me to get started in homebrewing. A good introduction to the mechanics of homebrewing. But as the first reviewer suggested above, the author is a bit paranoid. For a first-timer, I’d probably reccommend Papazian’s guides as a better place to start. It’s a little more easygoing and makes for a more interesting read.
