    This is a very easy to read book that is straight forward and easy to follow. I feel ready to take on the beer making world after just reading this book. I feel more knowledgeable about the whole beer brewing process and confident that my 9 year old son and I will be able to brew some great beer in the very near future.

    This “Beer Making Book” contains an introduction that walks you though all the brewing steps and instructs you on how and why certain actions are taken while brewing beer. There are 50+ recipes in this book that are separated into the four seasons; spring, summer, fall and winter. If you like the seasonal beers this makes brewing beers from any season easy.

    Before I bought this book I had bought the brewing kit by the same company, Brooklyn Brew Shop. My son and I made the recipe that came with the kit and in a few days we will be bottling our first batch; can’t wait to use one of the many recipes in this book for our next batch.

    I’ve been Brewing The Classic Styles for a couple of years now. I think the JZ & JP book is essential for any home brewer, full of sound advice and solid recipes. But this book, the Beer Making Book, is inspiring me with more interesting, creative, and fun recipes.

    The creative and radical recipes are what make this book so great. There are a few standards, but mostly not. For example, there is a gluten free beer made (unbelievably) from carrots. A bourbon Dubbel made with Bourbon soaked oak chips, a cherry beer make with cherries and cherry wood smoked malt. A Gose with instructions for a 3 day sour mash. There are four gluten free beer recipes in this book, and for one of them, you malt your own buckwheat. They have easy to follow instructions for germinating then drying and crushing it. I know these recipes have been tested and so I feel safe trying them out even if it sounds outrageous. For me, this is like Randy Moser’s Radical Brewing, but with well described recipes. Many of the recipes use seasonal ingredients.

    The book contains all-grain recipes for making both one and five gallon batches. Five gallons is a traditional home brew batch size, and one gallon is really small, since you will only yield about 8 bottles. The benefit of the one gallon batch size is that you do not have to buy a large pot, you may already own one. When I first started brewing I purchased a one gallon kit from the Brooklyn Brewshop (authors of the book) and brewed my first really good beer using it and their very clear instructions. It was the one gallon “Well Made Tripel” kit. Since then I’ve I stopped using kits and only make larger batches, but there are so many fun recipes in here that I might just pick up a mini fermentor and try them as one gallon batches. It seems like it would be easy to make a small batch on a weeknight after work and a way to try many recipes with less time commitment.

    There is quite a bit of easy to read instructions for the beginner. Their writing is good, clear, and entertaining. I think this book is fun for the novice or experienced brewer.
