From internationally recognized beer-brewing authority Randy Mosher comes the ultimate guide to the craft, for beginners and advanced brewers alike. Featuring plainspeaking, fun-to-read instructions, more than 150 colorful graphics and illustrations of process and technique, and 30 master recipes for classic and popular brews, this handbook covers everything from choosing ingredients and equipment to mashing, bottling, tasting, and serving. With much-lauded expertise, Mosher simplifies the complexities-at once inspiring and teaching today's burgeoning new league of home brewers.
Rick says: when I started out making homebrew, I used Mosher's Radical Brewing as a source of ideas to push the boundaries of the beers I was making. I loved it for it's marriage of technical detail with outright wackiness, featuring such historical or apocryphal recipes as "cock ale" (calling for a whole rooster to be added). So, when I saw Mosher had come out with a more broadly angled homebrew book, I knew we had to have it for the shop. Unlike its predecessor, this is an ideal all-around brewing compendium and despite its name could easily be a first or only book on homebrew. It has many detailed illustrations on malt colour, hop oils, mash temperature curves, and more.
