I purchased this book for exactly the reasons Gordon Strong lays out in the introduction: it tells you how and why Gordon Strong brews the way that he does. His credentials show that he has mastered homebrewing, so I was very interested to see if there were tips or procedures I could pick up that would improve my brew day and/or to improve my beer. He covers just about every angle from recipe formulation all the way through to packaging and shipping the beer off for competition. Every chapter either taught me something, reinforced an idea, or gave me something to think about.
The book is divided into three main sections: Philosophy, Mastering Your Craft, and Applying Your Knowledge.Read more ›
I've been brewing for about 20 years, 7 of it all grain. I brew on average twice a month, sometimes more. I have single tier three vessel system. I am a scientist by training, but to be honest, I never thought of my brewing from a "process" viewpoint, until I read the book. I am at that stage in my brewing where I am focusing more on improving my beer, rather than seeking out new methods or techniques. The book offers those kind of insights. The author gets you thinking about beer and your brewing from a different perspective. He emphasizes that no two brewers make beer the same way, which is very true and is amply demonstrated if you belong to a brewclub. Homebrewers can all make great beer on their variety of systems: the book helps you think in a way to maximize your system to make the most of what you have and the processes that you have adopted. It offers alternatives, and shows the up and down sides of them all, so the brewer can decide if he has made the right choice for him.
It is a shame that I almost missed out on this book due to a few petty reviews, that in hindsight seem more like bulletin board rants, by know it alls with brewpot envy. Guys, please go get yourself a 15 gallon Blichman and get rid of the little 5 gallon enameled pot, then maybe you won't be so sour on life and can move on.
The book was never meant to be a book on beer design, or a how to book which is what the harshest critiques are comparing it to.Read more ›
If you want a book to tell you what to do, go pick up How to Brew. If you want a book to tell you how to decide for yourself what to do, and how to think about brewing, buy this one.
