it was amazing
bookshelves: homebrew-beer
Recommended for: beer drinkers
Read in September, 2008

Papazian is such an avid fan of homebrewing, and of beer in general, that you can't help but read this book and just go out and start brewing. For readers of his Complete Joy of Homebrewing, this book is an indispensable second volume, with lots of more detailed info regarding some of the trickier scientific bits and tweaking of homebrews. Is it accessible? Well, due to cost considerations, I have yet to purchase any of the gear necessary for brewing, but still found it an informative and fun read. If you like beer, find and read these books.

I would also note that Papazian is in no way a beer snob. He may not be a huge fan of the flavor of the mega-breweries, but he is always sure to give them credit where it is due. His views on their accomplishments, especially in light of the goals of home brewing, are especially revealing.
