Highly suggest new brewers to purchaseFebruary 2, 2013Excellent Book!I received this book with a kit, and I am so happy that I did! I am new to brewing and this book has me feeling pretty confident. It is very easy to read and understand, and it goes far past beginning brewing. I would recommend this book to any brewer or person interested in the brewing process.February 4, 2013How to Brew - in depthWhen I started brewing I read this book, but didn't absorb more than a quarter of it. After brewing for 6 months I reread it and it made a lot more sense. After moving to all grain and reading it again I finally understood most of it. It's a great book, and contains an enormous amount of information that I was gradually able to use and improve my beer. I still refer back to it, after all these years.February 4, 2013Great resourceI've read this book several times. I like to go back to it from time to time when I'm not 100% about what I'm doing. Lots of information and easy to read.February 13, 2013Wish I had before my first homebrew!Great book. Has lots of great details from proper cleaning/sanitizing methods to types of hops. I wish I would have had this book prior to my first home-brew, little did I know that I was making some minor mistakes that most home-brewers make. Now I have the correct information and best methods for brewing. All home-brewers should own this book, whether it be first timers or veterans.February 15, 2013How I learned to BrewThis book covers everything.
