Drew's book is fun and easy to read (humorous even).

I have read John Palmer's How to Brew book and if I could only could purchase one book I would get that one.

I enjoyed reading this book. It has some good recipes in it. I have read John Palmer's How to Brew book and if I could only could purchase one book I would get that one. Palmer's book had some more details that you may or may not be interested in. I enjoyed this book more than The Complete Joy of Homebrewing Third Edition because it didn't have "Relax, don't worry, have a homebrew" repeated over and over again. The book did give me some other ideas and I think I will make a fermentation chiller sometime (plans not in book but son of fermentation chiller and others available on the internet). Will be making the bourbon vanilla imperial porter next week and then the evil twin. Not at all disappointed in purchasing this book.

I guess I am the contrarian here. Very disappointed with Beechum's book. I think it is incredibly poorly designed for the novice brewer. It does have some interesting recipes but even here he provides no real discussion of how beer recipes are formulated. I am a fairly experienced wine maker and a relatively new brewer but someone with very little knowledge of brewing would be utterly lost if they tried to use this book as their entry into brewing. In my opinion the book is really more about Beechum's 100 recipes. But after reading the book I would have no real sense of the relationship between base malts and specialty grains (Does it make sense to have a recipe where specialty grains are 20 percent of the grain bill? 10 percent? 30 percent?). He uses terms that he fails to explain (what is strike water?) or remind the reader when a term is re-introduced 100 pages later. It looks like - just as with his book on cider making - he wants the reader to jump right in and begin brewing from page 1 but he fails to really explain what equipment you need for that exercise and really what you need to be thinking about. In short , I think the book is written for someone who has brewed a number of batches of beer but that person won't learn very much from the coverage of brewing. The value of the book may be in the recipes but even here he has taken short cuts and fails to help the less experienced reader make sense of what is involved in conversions from extract to partial extract to all grain or indeed how the reader might usefully tweak and experiment with any of the recipes. Bostwick and Rymill's Beer Craft stands head and shoulders above this book. If this was written for a class I would give it a grade of D. Sorry. Beer Craft: A Simple Guide to Making Great Beer

Anyone interested in home-brewing should take a good look at this book.

I believe that all home-brewers would benefit from having a copy of this book in their brewing library.

More About the Author

I am a brewer - at home and of trouble. I'm also a monthly columnist for BeerAdvocate the Magazine and a regular contributor to Zymurgy and Beer & Brewer. In addition to writing about beer, I tend to putter around computers, the internet and the pub. All three of which make the writing part hard!
