Pretty straight forward, what's your favourite brewing book and why?

For me, it's Greg Hughes Home Brew Beer. Partly because it was the first brewing book I bought, plus there's loads of really good (and simple) recipes for different styles, that can also be easily adapted into other variations. Everything is laid out really well and is written in a way that suited a brewing novice!

The last one I bought - Homebrew All Stars, by our own Drew & Denny 😉 - well written, with loads of good recipes

That said.... you never forget your first either [rofl]

Classic 70's/80's style DIY brewing from the grandaddy of the HB scene, Charlie Papazian 😉 - Although reading it does require a imperial-metric conversion chart and leaves you with a strange desire to dress up like Bob Ross.... [rofl]

Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

Radical Brewing by Randy Mosher is the book I enjoyed the most and probably took the most away from.  I also enjoyed Homebrew Allstars and Brew Like a Monk too.

Same as yo7 Hops, Greg Hughes book. I still revisit it often and will be doing a few recipes from it next season, a wit and American wheat, though I will inevitably tinker a bit.

Dave Line. Big Book of Brewing. Brilliant in the time before the internet. I made good beers because of that book. First edition 1974.

For me , its Brewing Science by Herbert Lloyd Hind ( I managed to order a copy through my local library) , if you're interested in historic brewing , this is a must read ,

Me too ... it's the book that got me going ... after I had found "brewing beers like those you buy" in a charity shop.

I often look at his recipes even now ... they are straight forward, suits me.

I reckon John Palmer's book has to be about the best one on the market at the moment ... if you want something more in-depth.

Multi-tasking, easy, drink beer and watch telly.

That's an obscure reference even by my standards.

I bought the Michael Combrune reprint of The Theory & Practice of Brewing ... still haven't finished it and I reckon I bought it 2 years ago.

I like Clive La Pensee's books, Ron Pattinon's too.  I have done a couple of brews based on Ron Pattinson's recipes ... they worked out great.

Multi-tasking, easy, drink beer and watch telly.
