Product Description

From the Back Cover

Helles, German for light -- as in color, not calories or alcohol content -- is the Bavarian quaffing beer and official beerhall lager of Munich's famous Hofbrauhaus. A page-turning guide through Bavaria with stories of royalty, dynasties, and helles seekers fill the pages. Beer enthusiasts and brewers interested in learning more about the dazzling helles will treasure this book. Written by a man who knows all about it, Horst Dornbusch covers the exact step-by-step brewing methods to achieve the necessary perfection of a helles.

About the Author

Horst Dornbusch lives in Massachusetts where he writes and is a professional brewer. He holds a Master's degree from Brandeis University and is author of three books.

Format: Paperback
The various books in the Classic Beer Style series are as mixed of a bag as their subjects. While each makes an effort to provide a bit of a history lesson, some technical background and a few recipes for the homebrewer, each author seems to have been pretty much left to work out the details. As a result, some examples got lost by being muddled with too much history, too many technical details or recipes that are at the extremes of the complexity scale.
Dornbusch managed to get a great balance of the three in this book, and he presents it in a style that shows that he downright enjoys his subject. The result is a book that, from a homebrewer's standpoint, is actually fun to read. But most importantly, you can make some pretty good brews from his recipes.

Do you like german beer? If you do, get this book. This is the recipe key for that famous blond beer served in Bavaria. If you like the red beer, then get the book on octoberfest beer (marzen). This book will help you formulate a tasty, balanced, perfectly malty brew that is delightful. Fifty percent of my brews are helles beers, and once you get them right, I think yours may be too.
For the most authentic taste, I recommend incorporating decoction mashing. This subject is not covered in this text, but is in a book titled: NEW BREWING LAGER BEER.
Don't forget to drink to the foam (safely) and dance to merry music with a partner! Have fun. Auf Wiedersehen.

Having spent many nights in the Spaten and Augustiner beer halls this is a good book which reviews the style well. As I type this, the malt is undergoing the "acid rest", as I am Brewing the first recipe today. This is another good book from this series and useful source of information for the collection. I did have to order direct form the USA as it doen't appear to be available in the UK.

HASH(0x9ac118c4) out of 5 stars Excellent tool Feb. 5 2011

Excellent tool for making even best brews from now forward.
Clear explanations, a bit of history, and a deep knowledge on the process provide the beginner and the initiated resources enough to experiment this style so lovely described by the author.
The challenge is now to achieve something at least similar to what has been presented to us. Its good explanations encourages us to think that it's worth a try.
Sorry for my English.

HASH(0x9b3440a8) out of 5 stars Just Fine Oct. 31 2013
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Again as I wrote on Vienna Marzen Oktoberfest, I'd highly recommend New Brewing Lager Beer by Greg Noonan for a more indepth understanding of how to produce this style.

These books are more of a contextual on the history & parameters of the style, while it gives a few recipes they are on par with Papazian recipes.

The truth is, most of the best examples of this style are simply not available in the US, making the techniques that much harder to come by.
