This is a weird book It is trying to be the only homebrew book you need, but I don t think that is realistic Sections on water chemistry and yeast biology for advanced brewers will confuse beginners while parts about extract brewing will bore the experienced brewers That said, there is a ton of great information here and the design, including charts is excellent Definitely worth checking out but you may need to be selective about which parts to read I ll be referring back to the malt guide a lot, I think. Fun, narrative style that gives a good crash course into brewing It seeks to be an all in one sort of book which he admits is not possible, but his descriptions of the various techniques and fixes and styles and recipes are well written I found his chapter on making and adapting recipes very useful as well as his charts and tables of ingredients and for these alone the book is worth owning and referencing This book is not as much into the science and math of making beer, but there are other books that do that well and he references those where appropriate This is a good book for the beginner looking to level up and as a refresher and reference book for those looking to up the consistency and quality of their beer. This was a good book and I believe it will be a great resource later in my brewing adventures however, it is not for beginners, which I am right now It is very technical and very informative. 6 estrellas Internationally Recognized Beer Brewing Authority Randy Mosher Comes The Ultimate Guide To The Craft, For Beginners And Advanced Brewers Alike Featuring Plainspeaking, Fun To read Instructions, ThanColorful Graphics And Illustrations Of Process And Technique, AndMaster Recipes For Classic And Popular Brews, This Handbook Covers Everything From Choosing Ingredients And Equipment To Mashing, Bottling, Tasting, And Serving With Much Lauded Expertise, Mosher Simplifies The Complexities At Once Inspiring And Teaching Today S Burgeoning [ Pdf Mastering Homebrew ¿ freetown PDF ] by Randy Mosher ☆ New League Of Home Brewers
While it could be used by a beginning homebrewer, there is a lot of information in this book that could be overwhelming For someone starting out, I would suggest John Palmer s How to Brew instead This book has a wealth of information on hops,malt, yeast, water chemistry, etc, and how everything interplays and creates certain characteristics in beer it is broken down by ingredient and there are many handy reference areas for charts and info There is also quite a bit of information to craft and or hone recipes of your own, which I found very helpful This book is an excellent resource and Randy Mosher has a lot of expertise in this subject his book Radical Brewing is also good. Þ Mastering Homebrew À Great reference book for homebrewing Randy Mosher puts his own spin on homebrewing and shares his insights and memories of his own development This book has a number of illustrations , tables and recipes Do not try to read this book straight through The book is long and reads like a textbook at times Instead, look at this book like a cooking reference and try out the recipes and learnabout the techniques. This has quickly become the one reference book about home brewing I keep coming back to. 3. 5 stars Wordy and could have been half the length Narrative form does not explain the brewing process very well, but it does inspire to make beer The charts showing malts, hops, and yeasts and the flavors they impart on the beer are very useful and helpful The chapter on coming up with your own recipe is also useful.

Randy s book has a lot of great colour illustrations and tables, making it easier to understand some of thecomplex ideas in brewing. Another interesting area that Randy covers is beer styles, and how to go beyond the styles While it s a big enough topic for a separate book, he does a good job of introducing the idea to new brewers.
