This book is the ultimate guide to Brewing Classic Beer Styles. This book has been broken into 2 parts. Part one is a book in itself focused solely on home brewing ingredients and techniques, including 3 chapters on hops alone. Ray Daniels proves himself by infusing his introductory chapters with as much brewing math as brewing lore. Yet, Daniels never hops off the deep end. Instead, he complements this emphasis on data with creative use of graphics where one could get bogged down in the stats, there is usually a clear visual depiction to instantly summarize their meaning. Part 2 is an indispensable guide intended for brewers interested in formulating their own beers based on classic styles, modern techniques, and their own vision of the perfect beer. Over 200 tables offer brewers knowledge on the essence of various styles, giving them the needed information to create their own beers. With 27 chapters and 390 pages Designing Great Beers is a must read for every home brewer.
Customer Reviews"Awesome" Review by shermy (Posted on 1/12/14)
I bought the book for my wife and she absolutely loves it. We recently started brewing our own beer and want to try new things, and with this book, it helps us with what not to do and also gives up very good ideas. Best Christmas gift of the year. Thank you
