This book is amazing.
Reading it I learned all I needed to start brewing. Then I went back to it and learned more advanced techniques. I brewed some of the recipes and from time to time still go back to it. It will always be useful to me.
This is the first brewing book I read and its got all you need to get going. There are more advanced books, but this is good enough for your first year. Fun to read, with lots of recipes.
I love this book. Its the perfect book for starting out, and then once you have a few brews experience, come back and read it a second time to learn more.
hey!! i love this book!! a friend borrowed it and disappeared!! I will reorder this now!!!
