Home Brewing (Self-Sufficiency)

by

Home Brewing (Self-Sufficiency) Cover

 

Staff Pick

This charming primer on home brewing resembles a child's colorful library book, but the information inside is strictly for grownups. John Parkes, a professional brewer from Devon, England, lays out the basics of beer history and home brewing 101 for enthusiastic novices. He also offers troubleshooting tips in case something doesn't go right. The color illustrations and simple instructions make this a pleasure to read (it feels more like a hardcover 'zine than a technical manual) and will get you itching to start on your first batch of home brew.
