4.0 out of 5 stars Good Information February 18, 2013

I have been a homebrewer for several years now. Even though I have my favorites, and have it pretty well crafted, I still like reading about the craft. Recommended for those who may be interested in homebrewing.

I got this for my Kindle because I started brewing with friends. Now I can brew on my own and am loving the sampling parties.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for starters November 24, 2012

Gave some good detailed instructions to help you out for your first brew. Helps to make sure you avoid some headaches that some beginners might make, also has some images to illustrate the required equipment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Whoops. November 7, 2012
By Jeremy
Verified Purchase
An "illustrated" book should be careful not to include dead images. One of the very first images in the book doesn't display. Time to update.

Also, the very first quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin has been shown many times to be incorrect. Franklin's actually quote was regarding wine: "Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine, a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy."

Font size seems too small, and I find it interesting that the introduction seems to be exactly the same content as found online at

Really not worth anything no good information in it. Could get better information from the aha website. I guess OK for free.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for Beginners, Not much else January 16, 2014
Verified Purchase
First, don't ready only this book if you have just started or about to start brewing. Much of the information (even the historical information) is subjective or just incorrect (The Yuengling Brewery is in Pottsville, PA not NY!). The History section seems rushed and probably should have been skipped or abbreviated much more. The guidance on brewing is decent, but incomplete. There is no mention of the differences between extract and all-grain brewing. A brief primer on ingredients (malt types, extract, types, hop types, etc.) would be beneficial in such a low level book. The bottom line, as stated above, do not use this as your only guide for brewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars good overview but short December 17, 2013
By Beagle

This was a helpful overview but shorter than I expected. It gives just what one might need to get started home brewing. It tells you the equipment you will need and how to brew an intermediate level batch.

The glossary has more information than the text. Many glossary terms aren't even discussed in the book. It was informative though.

This book gives a nice overview of home brewing. This is kind of a step by step guide, but you may want to read other home brew material for a deeper understanding of each step.

It's a good beginner book to get the fundamentals of homebrewing, I guess just as the title implies. The book could give more extra tricks or tips to help in the process. Read more
