Tess and Mark have incroporated a wealth of information into this book. The recipes are easy to follow and with some care will produce very nice beer. This book (as well as their earlier "Clonebrews") makes one thing difficult - which beer to make first??
This is a MUST HAVE for anyone interested in brewing their own beer. I can not thank Tess and Mark enough for their tireless efforts and dedication to making brewing beer so easy and rewarding!! Keep up the great work!
While the first section of the book contains a brief description of the process, I strongly reading a beginner's brewing book (such as Papazian's Joy of Homebrewing, Dave Miller's Homebrewing Guide, or Marty Nachel's Homebrewing for Dummies) if you haven't brewed before.
As with all brewing recipe books, you should take it with a grain of salt. I strongly recommend double-checking recipe ingredients with ProMash or the equivalent prior to beginning to make sure you'll hit the target gravity and bitterness. This is especially true if you're making the all grain or partial mash versions of the recipes.
One of the major problems I have with this book is that for a lot of beers vital information is included in the Helpful Hints section, where you might miss it. For instance, lagering is only mentioned in the Helpful Hints section. This should be part of the main recipe. This seems to be a flaw in the format.
I found the serving suggestions included with each recipe somewhat silly. There are a number of recipes at the end of the book which I haven't tried, although a number look decent.

Some really good recipes, many of which I have been looking for and I am looking forward to brewing. One mistake though, the Hofbrauhaus Berchtesgadener Hell on pg 136. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Chris

The layout of the book by style is nice, and for a novice extract brewer looking for recipes it's probably fine. Not enough effort was made to make this easy for all grain brewers. Read morePublished 20 months ago by bigwheat
Great addition to a beer brewing library. Already brewed the Brugse Tripel and still have many more to brew. Lots of beers I am unfamiliar with or haven't seen. Read morePublished on October 28, 2013 by rideincircles
