Beginner's Guide to Home Brewing
This beginner's introduction to home brewing is not for the beer geeks, the brewing technicians, the persnickety, or the obsessive compulsive worrier. This book is for the person who wants a relaxing, easy introduction to one of the better hobbies on the planet.
This revised 2nd edition includes an expanded overview of the basics of homebrewing and material on all-grain brewing. It also includes several beginner and advanced recipes to get you started.
There are a lot of details in brewing and sometimes it can get overwhelming. Beginning brewers often say they worry they're not worrying about the right things. That's why they need this book. The general rule is -- don't worry. There are a few things you need to pay attention to, but by all means, chill. Home brewing ingredients are so good these days that if you're moderately careful you can make really good beer at home. Without worrying.
If you're ready to be chill and try your hand at home brewing -- without sweating all the little details -- then this little book should help.
This short introduction might be enough to slake your curiosity, give you the details you need to brew at a level you're comfortable with and start you on a life-long hobby. The author started brewing in 1987, and for about the next 20 years stuck with a pretty simple, basic method. It worked well enough to make some pretty good beer -- with some notable exceptions! Eventually the author took the plunge into all-grain brewing, but he still tries to keep that "relax, don't worry" ethic.
