    A gift from my father it was originally very much middle of the pack on my homebrewing books wishlist Judging by the title I figured the book was going to be a collection of modern homebrew recipes; for me I'd rather experiment and design my own so I wasn't all that interested in just a catalog of what others have done except to have some points of comparisonHOWEVER the first major section of the book is about how to evaluate beers how to evaluate recipes how to pick ingredients how to scale a recipe how to reverse engineer a recipe etc It is a great primer on recipe design giving you what you need to properly digest and adapt the recipes that followSo in that sense MOST of the book turned out to be exactly what I thought it was but that first big chunk provides so much context and so much value The first 50 pages alone are worth the price

    This is a useful resource slightly undermined by sloppy production It builds on the author's previous work summarizing and refining techniues presented in Brewing Better Beer before jumping into a myriad of recipesThe first section discusses brewing techniue process recipe formulation ingredient substitution etc Formulation and substitution are of particular interest to me and though this volume doesn't go into nearly as much detail as say Designing Great Beers it provides a solid overview of the subject and is than sufficient to get one pointed in the right direction without overwhelmingThe second section contains than 100 distinctive recipes which are fascinating to read if you find that sort of thing fascinating I do As an extract brewer I'll likely never brew any of these myself exactly as presented but I intend to borrow liberally from his approach For example I can't really use first wort hopping in extract brewing but I can and will use hop bursting I can also see myself drawing inspiration from his use of ingredients specifically spices and honey many ideas came into my head as I was reading And I'm pleased to see so many low gravity and Belgian recipes I currently brew many of the former and am eager to explore the latterAppendixes cover basic beer math considerations in choosing brewing software and strategies for converting recipes from all grain to extract and vice versa Math is dealt with far extensively in other volumes and though the ability to calculate by hand has been made largely irrelevant thanks to automated tools it's good to know how the sausage is made Recipe conversion is also an area of great interest to me and the author offers excellent tips on how to approach that even though he himself doesn't do extract beers and looks down on them a bit; where he sees the need to compromise I see the opportunity to adaptMy one complaint is with the book's production As a professional editor and writer I am all too aware of deadlines and the errors they can foment As such I try to cut fellow professionals and their publishers considerable slack That being said there are an alarming number of typos that might lead one to wonder about the accuracy of other information presented I'm willing to give benefit of the doubt here but future versions of this volume could use better uality control particularly in the later stages of productionStill this is a terrific resource I'll be returning to it often

    I really enjoyed the first half of the book with all the background techniues for developing a balanced beer recipe I didn't personally like the sound of many of the recipes and am not sure if I will try one or not I may end up using some for brainstorming ideas but regardless this book has helped me grow my overall knowledge of the beer making process by better understanding the ingredients and the role that each plays It was also an enjoyable read nothing like a textbook Update I tried some recipes and have not been disappointed Update to 5 stars This is now my go to inspiration

    Great content but tons of spelling and grammatical errors The poor editing distracted me somewhat I can't wait to try some of these recipes though

Craft beer is about innovation discovery and interpretation Homebrewing is about all that and As the beer scene changes so do the beer styles we know and love This is a useful resource slightly undermined by sloppy production It builds on the author's previous work summarizing and refining techniues presented in Brewing Better Beer before jumping into a myriad of recipesThe first section discusses brewing techniue process recipe formulation ingredient substitution etc Formulation and substitution are of particular interest to me and though this volume doesn't go into nearly as much detail as say Designing Great Beers it provides a solid overview of the subject and is than sufficient to get one pointed in the right direction without overwhelmingThe second section contains than 100 distinctive recipes which are fascinating to read if you find that sort of thing fascinating I do As an extract brewer I'll likely never brew any of these myself exactly as presented but I intend to borrow liberally from his approach For example I can't really use first wort hopping in extract brewing but I can and will use hop bursting I can also see myself drawing inspiration from his use of ingredients specifically spices and honey many ideas came into my head as I was reading And I'm pleased to see so many low gravity and Belgian recipes I currently brew many of the former and am eager to explore the latterAppendixes cover basic beer math considerations in choosing brewing software and strategies for converting recipes from all grain to extract and vice versa Math is dealt with far extensively in other volumes and though the ability to calculate by hand has been made largely irrelevant thanks to automated tools it's good to know how the sausage is made Recipe conversion is also an area of great interest to me and the author offers excellent tips on how to approach that even though he himself doesn't do extract beers and looks down on them a bit;
