I love the premise of this book. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a brew stand, dedicated fermentation chamber, or other toys to enjoy making beer at home. You also don’t need to make five gallons at a time; you can learn a lot from making one gallon batches if that is all the space or stove top power that you can manage. These are good messages to bring to the homebrew world.

That said, if you are a beginning brewer, you probably need a bit more instruction than is provided in thi

For a novice female brewer who's just starting out with home brewing, I bought myself this book at the Chocolate Maple Porter to kickstart my homebrew journey. After completing the book, I am very pleased with my choice.

Oh, don't worry, I also reserved Charlie Papazian's homebrewing books from the library and a few more to teach myself the science, lore and practicality of homebrewing. However, this book is perfectly geared toward super small batches (my preferred) of one gallon. Five gallon mo

Got this through the library's e-book option. Couldn't have been easier to get it out. Very easy to return (quickly). Very abbreviated how-to section. May eventually try her method, but I had too many questions after I read it to be confident I could do it. Maybe if I'd read this first, I'd try it, but it is too different from "Beer Craft", which I'm trying now. It has been loads of fun and the results have been surprisingly good.

Pretty good beginner book. The things I like about this book are that it teaches a method of all-grain brewing that doesn't need a ton of extra equipment and it's mainly for 1 gallon batches. I live in an apartment and making a 5 gallon batch takes too much space. 1 gallon is the perfect size for me, right now. And the recipes all sound delicious. I can't wait to start.

A delightfully inventive brew book. Recipes incorporating mustard, lobster, and heavy doses of cardamom intersperse with more traditional brews. There is even a GF carrot-based brew that demands to be tried!

A great book.

I might have to buy this book. It is kind of what I have been looking for. A small batch brewing guide plus some recipes to cut my teeth on.
