"The Homebrewer's Garden, is quite a timely book. Even if you are not a beer drinker (I'm not...), when you read recipes like those for "Mumm" and "Black Ale," made using herbs other than hops, or "Chili Beer" using hot Thai peppers, you may be itching to try brewing, if only to use as unique gifts." -- The Herbal Connection, Winter 1999
From the Back Cover
If you have a backyard, or even a sun-facing porch, you can greatly enhance the flavor, aroma, and uniqueness of your homebrew by growing your own hops, brewing herbs, and malt grains.
Easy instructions will help you put the "home" into your homebrew from setting up your first hop trellis, to malting grain at home, to brewing recipes specially formulated for homegrown ingredients. When you grow your own organic ingredients, you can be sure they are the freshest and purest available.
