    There are probably three books that are genuinely helpful for the beginning homebrewer. Which one is right for you depends on how you approach techniques of dealing with things in the physical world.

    If the idea of doing anything physical scares the bejabbers out of you, get The Complete Joy of Homebrewing Third Edition (Harperresource Book). This is a very simple, slow and reassuring book. The author-Charlie Papazian- sounds like the friendliest, least intimidating guy in the world. The style is very chummy in a post-frathouse kind of way that some people find very difficult to read and that others find relaxing. In this book you may see the ancestor of the Complete Dummies series. I believe that Papazian, who has made a carreer of coaching homebrewers, has been published on the topic for thirty years or so.
    If you’re the sort of person who likes the idea of baking his own bread or wiring her own lamp, then probably this book-The Complete Handbook- is right for you. The information is straightforward and well-organized and the author allows for the fact that sometimes you want to make it fast and simple and other times you may want to linger over the details. There’s a separate book of recipes ordered by beer style and also by degree of difficulty. I still have notes on recipes that I brewed two decades ago that are just marked: Miller, p55.
    If you love worrying, then Palmer’s How to Brew: Everything You Need To Know To Brew Beer Right The First Time is the book for you. There are dozens of complications lurking in Palmer’s world of brewing and a host of precautions and gadgets gadgets for avoiding them. Palmer is also the book for those who are curious about fundamentals: the hard science of brewing is to be found here.

    ~Miller has written a book that covers ALOT of info about brewing and the science thereof. For anyone weaned on Pappazian’s books, this is the next logical step. Every aspect of the science of brewing beer is covered.~ sometimes funny style, but that doesn’t detract from the excellent layout of this book, which leads from simple partial-mash brewing to all-grain mashing via a logical and step-by step progression of ideas and metho

    Are there any other books about beermaking ?, June 12, 1999

    Today I am brewing beer, because eight yaers ago I read Dave’s book. This tome got me started quickly and successfully into the fine art of brewing. In reading only the first two chapters, I had begun my first batch, and I have refered to it ever since. I have read many books on brewing, but I always rely on this one when I need to go back to the basics or cure a problem. Whether you have brewed a thousand batches, or are contemplating your first, I highly recommend this book.
