Format: Paperback
After NEW BREWING LAGER BEER, this has been the most helpful book to get my beer styles just right. It contains hordes of information usually available only in professional works, and doesn't over complicate it. I love this book and always refer to it before I start a new brew. It is the only accurate book that discusses the amount of water retained in your grain, and allows you to calculate the pre brew water quantity more accurately. A must for you home brew library.

Easy to follow step by step guide that covers all aspects of designing a beer. Clear easy to follow mathematical examples enhances the learning process. Great, clear details are given on why different styles are brewed in their own fashion. Local brewmasters also agree that it is a good starting book to understand if you considering entering the field of brewing.

Format: Paperback
As someone relatively new to homebrewing and looking into moving from extract to all grain brewing, this book is excellent.
It really breaks down how to formulate recipes based on your target style, percentages of appropriate malts and adjuncts, yeasts, etc.
This book opened my eyes to hitting target gravity, bitterness ratios and a host of other things. Well worth it!!

This is a good book for those interested in the history of beers, or those with some basic brewing knowledge who want to learn more.

The book is not a recipe book, if that's what you're looking for, but does go into detail about style guides and each styles history. It also covers ingredient trends in the NHC (National Homebrew Competition) in the US, although from a few years back. It would be nice to see a new addition to update that info.

All in all I'm glad I've got this book - and I would definitely recommend it for those brewers who plan to put their beer into competition, or for those who just love a little history and want to know more about the hobby!
