My husband's beer bible
on October 10, 2013
My husband started making his own beer from extract kits and really wanted to take it to the next level. The Brewing Classic Styles book has done just that! He now buys his own grains, uses a mash tun and creates all his brews from scratch! When buying ingredients we can't always find exactly what you need, but you Google a substitute for it, and voila, you have the solution and what you need to replicate the recipes.
When he mentioned he wanted to buy this book I had no idea what it would mean for his beer brewing hobby but I am glad he got it because his beer is delicious. It is super cheap just buying ingredients and making your own. It is time consuming but this book makes it much easier. It's like a cook book for homemade beer!
If you are just starting out in the make your own beer hobby I would probably recommend starting with the extract kits to learn the basics. When you are ready to take it to the next level get a copy of Brewing Classic Styles and enjoy delicious homemade beer.
