Everything You Need to Know to Brew Great Beer Every Time
Den nya utgåvan av denna klassiker är snäppet bättre än den förra, och bör stå i bokhyllan hos alla hembryggare på olika kunskapsnivåer. Särskilt på plussidan är de omarbetade kapitlen om jäsning och vattenbehandling. I synnerhet jäsningen hanteras föredömligt. Några nya kapitel har tillkommit också, exempelvis om suröl. Enda stora minuset är att oxidering känns en smula nedtonat, konstigt nog.
How to brew är ett givet köp både för kompletta nybörjare samt de som redan hunnit brygga några gånger och vill utöka sin kunskap. Välskriven och lätt att förstå, utan att göra avkall på detaljnivån!

If a homebrewer were to have only one brewing book, it would have to be How to Brew by John Palmer. How to Brew covers it all-from beginner to advanced brewing and everything in between. For the beginner, the first chapter has you covered with all you need to know to start brewing. From there, you can read on to gain further knowledge at whatever pace you choose. For more experienced brewers, How to Brew is a reference book for just about everything you want to know about brewing beer at home, covering ingredients, equipment and brewing techniques. No homebrewer should be without this book. -- Gary Glass, Director, American Homebrewers Association How deep do you want to go?Congratulations, with How to Brew you hold in your hands a unique body of brewing knowledge. Some books are like a puddle, perfect for splashing through in your intellectual rain boots; others are like a well, deep, but hard to get in and out of. This book is more like a veritable lake. If you want to dip your toe in, you can comfortably do that. If you are interested in swimming for the deep water, that is here too. John Palmer's clear and approachable style when writing on the theory and technique of brewing is as simple or complex as you desire. It will give you the confidence to quickly fire off your first batch, and provide comprehensive insights for when you are well into your brewing journey. This is a great resource. Come on in, the water is fine! -- John Mallett, Director of Operation, Bell's Brewery, Inc. and author of Malt: A Practical Guide from Field to Brewhouse I have always considered How to Brew the best complete resource for both new and experienced brewers. In this new edition, John has made a great resource even better and up to date with the latest information and techniques. How to Brew has all you need to go from complete novice to expert brewer. If you brew, you should own this book. -- Jamil Zainasheff, Author of Brewing Classic Styles and Chief Heretic of Heretic Brewing Company Not only is How to Brew one of the most critical and comprehensive DIY homebrewing books available today, I have even seen it on the bookshelves at many great craft breweries. -- Sam Calagione, CEO and Founder, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Owning How to Brew is like having a brewmaster as your best friend. In the 30-plus years since the American craft beer revolution got its start, countless brewing books have appeared. None, however, has achieved the status of How to Brew, which is thorough, comprehensive, and beautifully organized. And now, this new expanded and enhanced edition improves on the original. It's a considerable feat to create a book that is invaluable both to first-time brewers and professional brewmasters, but John has done it with a book that is essential for everyone who is serious about brewing. -- Jim Koch, Founder & Brewer of Samuel Adams Whenever I'm asked about what books I'd recommend to a brewer, I always recommend John Palmer's How to Brew. It is jam-packed with information that will help beginning brewers get started, and the more advanced technical brewing chemistry and science details that experienced brewers need to become great brewers. It works at all levels. -- Mitch Steele, COO and Brewmaster, New Realm Brewing Company John Palmer's How to Brew has been a great resource for homebrewers ever since he self-published the first edition in 2000. As the former owner of a homebrew supply store myself, I appreciate John's focus on how to avoid some common pitfalls that many aspiring brewers stumble over with his wise emphasis on "the top five priorities." From the basics (equipment and raw materials), to the critical (cleanliness), to the fun part (making your own beer recipes), this book covers the brewing process from start to finish. This new edition offers more information with an updated layout and expanded table of contents, which make it even easier to use. Anyone contemplating homebrewing, or looking to step up
