Originally published in 1963, this was the first modern book on home brewing and was an instant success. Since then, the book has gone through many revised and improved editions and to date has sold 750,000 copies.
This latest edition contains full instructions on how to brew fine beers and stouts of authentic flavour and strength. From palest lager to blackest extra stout, these are brews of which you can be proud.
There is much more to the home brewing hobby than simply making up a kit; home brewers need to know the theory behind the techniques they use and how to devise their own formulations for any type of beer. This book is the ideal introduction to the subject.
Contents: Brewing Vocabulary; The Story of Ale and Beer; Types of Beer and Stout; Background to Brewing; Some Important Points; Brewing from Kits; Brewing Ingredients; Equipment you will Need; Brewing Techniques; True Beers – by Mashing; Malt Extract Beers; Novelty Beer Recipes; Serving Your Beers.
