This next-generation beer book shares the secrets to thinking like a brewer, with basic recipes for each style of beer followed by inspired variations that reveal which flavors, infusions, hops, and yeasts are best suited to experimentation.
This photographic homebrewing course builds a foundation for learning the core styles (such as A Very Good IPA) then trying out variations (Citrusy Citra Dry-Hopped IPA, Spruce and Cedar Double IPA, and so on) that teach homebrewers which flavors and ingredients pair best with that style. This building-block approach allows homebrewers to become "fluent" in brewing beer and create their own signature variations. With small one-gallon batches perfect for experimentation, plus five-gallon instructions for those looking to reap full rewards from their brewing investment, this book's recipes and teaching style will appeal to both beginner weekend warriors and intermediate homebrewers. Inspired recipes such as Riding Lawnmower Pale Ale, Kombucha Sour Ale, Finnish Juniper Rye Sahti Ale, Figgy Pudding British Barleywine, and Farmer's Market Gruit will bring out the confident brewer in every do-it-yourselfer.
