5.0 out of 5 stars As an 1800's plantation owner I loved it! October 18, 2013

I found a sweetwater aquifer in the farthest tobacco field. I immediately had my best man arrange for it to be tapped and used for the brewing of beer. This should greatly reduce the expenses I have incurred when arranging holiday festivities, not to mention provide a productive avenue to occupy any layabouts and shiftless workers under my employ. While they may not excel at harvesting crops, it seems they always have plenty of enthusiasm when the result of their labor is a drunken stupor. I hope the cooper finishes my order for beer works before harvest season is over. Most Humbly Yours, Crenshaw Featherbottom

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best thing I've ever read. July 30, 2013

It was informative. I learned that if I have a servant brew my beer, I need to have the same servant brew my beer all the time. It should be their only job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read with a Historical Perspective November 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As an avid home brewer. an engineer, and committed technical researcher of beer chemistry and process I found it an interesting read. At the time period this was written there was little to no technical documentation available to the author. The observations with respect to basic malting and hop harvesting are pretty actionable and reasonable. The common lack of understanding about yeast, which in the era would have been near zero, proves malt, water and hops just want to be -- which explains the historical quote that God loves us for he gave us beer. That said, It is interesting and understandable that beer quality varied so widely from the process description provided. The read is extremely quick and must be the intent that you want to understand what the common practical knowledge of brewing was then, Thankfully so much research has been accomplished, published and shared so the common home brewer can make a high quality beer today.

Interesting, historical book on brewing beer - from around the year 1800. Some of the language and terms were hard to understand, but still interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was OK but not what I expected May 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book about brewing beer and this is what this book is about. This book is a treatise that is more about the historical overview of the practice of brewing beer rather than a discussion of the procedures of brewing beer.

It was interesting (sort of) but I had to go and look for a book that was a treatise on the brewing of beer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting look into a world that no longer exists March 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
200-plus years ago there were no stainless steel cylindro-conical fermentors. Or any way to keep things cold. Or any understanding of the biochemistry of fermentation (and spoilage). But there was beer, and this treatise provides an fascinating look at how it was brewed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A blast from the past October 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Interesting read from an 18th century perspective. Strange to see how much has changed in brewing but also notable how much has not. A little tough to understand I'm parts as the English and terms used are not familiar to a twenty first century reader but enjoyable and informative nonetheless, especially to brewers of beer
