HASH(0x9aae1264) out of 5 stars Excellent, especially for all-grain brewers. July 23 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Foster details the history of porter including the techniques which were used to make "traditional" porter. He includes recipes, in both extract and all-grain, for duplicating what porter must have tasted and looked like from an historical basis. If you're interested in brewing porter, this is a must read.

Format: Paperback
definitely a great read. want to know how beer went from small breweries to industrial operations? you can read about it in here. want to know how the breweries came up with porter, then switched to pale ales? read this then pale ales, and you will understand a good bit of british brewing history. want to know where stouts come from? read this. definitely a good read, but in need of some updating, and could use some discussion of baltic porter and american (robust) porter. if you like the style you should read this though.
HASH(0x9aad9048) out of 5 stars Like much of the rest of the series A second ... Oct. 13 2014
By Rob Murphy - Published on
Format: Paperback
Like much of the rest of the series A second edition is desperately needed.

That being said it gives a great, thorough history of the style and excellent tips on how to brew the style at both a commercial and homebrewing level.

Some of the recipes are quite lacking, but I look at is a the author leaving it up to us to interpret these recipes.
