4.0 out of 5 stars Zymurgy: Best Articles and advice... Dec 8 1999
By Donna Maurer - Published on Amazon.com
In Australia we have not been fortunate enough to receive a regular supply of the famous "Zymurgy" magizine. The few magazines I have received have been worthwhile, sparking my interest, but I have not seen the value in actually subscribing. This leads to curcumstances where it is worthwhile obtaining a compilation of the better articles, often spoken about in various litrature in the Brewing scene.
Zymurgy: The Best Articles and Advice, is just that, a compilation of various articles from the magazine. It is a bit of a misnomer that Papazian has his name plastered all over the front because he is the compiler/editor (with the assistance of others) of this collection. He has not written much of the content at all, and only contributed 2 articles, and an introduction.
Like him or loathe him, Papazian has compiled a wide range of very good information, faithfully reprinted from various editions of Zymurgy. Each article acknowleges the author, along with the original date of publication.
If you already subcribe to Zymurgy magazine, or have been collecting the magazine for a number of years, dont bother buying this book unless you want a one stop reference to what you already have. To those outside the USA, who may not have had the opportunity of regularly receiving Zymurgy - this is a very good cross section of articles and contains a wide range of information for the home brewer.
I recommend this book as a general source of Home Brewing information.

4.0 out of 5 stars A compilation of articles from Zymurgy, 'greatest hits' July 30 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A decent book of a varying topic field. Some articles go into a topic deeply, others just go skin deep. After reading it, I wished more topics had been covered in more depth. However, it would have made a bigger book. Enjoyable and recommanded to the avid homebrewer.
5.0 out of 5 stars "wert" the money Feb. 17 2014

Mr. Papazian is the editor of this book, (copyright 1998), which is a compilation of previously published articles from Zymurgy magazine. At least a couple dozen other individual authors of various Zymurgy magazine articles are the actual authors, along with Michael Jackson and Charlie Papazian. This is an old book, and I remembered many of the articles reproduced here from their original print days in Zymurgy. If you can't find something interesting in here, or better said, ten or fifteen interesting articles in this book, then you're not a home brewer. The articles are short, a few pages each usually, some longer, so you can pick this up and read them one at a time, as time permits. I learned so much from Zymurgy many years ago. This book holds up well.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good information, if dated Jan. 1 2014

In my opinion, the first two chapters, about traditional brewing methods and brewing history, are worth the purchase price. Some of the remaining articles might be less useful to you if you've spent any time on the internet homebrewing forums, but they are still worth a skim. I enjoyed reading about the history of the craft, and would recommend this to anyone who would be interested in the same.

Excellent set of articles. I have been a home brewer for many years and the Zymurgy is almost a bible, and this is the best of the best articles.
