The Brewmaster's Bible: The Gold Standard for Home Brewers

The Beer Renaissance is in full swing, and home brewing has never been more popular. According to the American Homebrewers Association, there are currently 1.2 million home brewers in the country, and their numbers keep rising. Tired of the stale ale, bland beer and lackadaisical lagers mass-produced by the commercial labels, Americans are discovering the many advantages of brewing their own batch of that beloved beverage: superior aroma, color, body and flavor.For both amateur alchemists eager

    This review is from: The Brewmaster’s Bible: The Gold Standard for Home Brewers (Paperback)

    This book was exactly what I was looking for: a reference with a lot of recipes and descriptions of the different types of hops, malt, adjuncts, etc. Beer styles are presented in a table giving you an idea of what types of ingredients are used and options that are available. This is a handy quick reference if you want to “wing it” with a little bit of a safety net. Then, about half of the book is specific recipes of varying dificulty, also organized by style.

    I gave this book four stars instead of 5 because on the back it says it’s the only book you’ll ever need. If you’re just starting out, I disagree. There are a few chapter’s on the basics, however, this book would have been a little confusing if I hadn’t first read Papazian’s Complete Joy of Homebrewing. The Complete Joy of Homebrewing will get you going. The Brewmaster’s Bible will keep you going. If you’re looking for a good reference, I highly recommend this book.

    The book is somewhat misleading – if you’re a beginner homebrewer, I don’t necessarily suggest this book. I would suggest something more along the lines of The Complete Joy of Homebrewing, as this book does not go into great detail of beginning steps.

    However, it is an excellent reference for recipies. Not only does it have hundreds (I’m not sure how many) of actual recipies, it also has great description of each type of beer and approximate starting and ending specific gravities.

    I am a beginner and use the recipies to decide what kind of beer to make next. So I do use this book before I go to the brewstore to pick up supplies everytime. All in all, it’s a decent book.

    I own many of the standard brewing books, TNCJOHB, etc, but this is the one I always pick up for the answers. Hop profiles, yeast profiles and extensive style guides, not to mention the vast amount of recipes. This is truely my bible!
