"I was delighted when I read this book for the first time. It's a whimsical yet authoritative treatise on the ingredients and processes that make great beer??and the best beer recipe book since Brewing Classic Styles. Experimental Homebrewing is a book that every brewer can benefit from." - John Palmer, Author of How to Brew, Brewing Classic Styles, and Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers
"What I love about homebrewing is the opportunity for experimentation, learning, fun, and great beer. Drew and Denny have captured all of that and more." - Jamil Zainasheff, Author of Brewing Classic Styles, Owner of Heretic Brewing
"Not since Radical Brewing has a book so thoroughly tackled the wildly-creative side of homebrewing." - Gordon Strong, BJCP President, Author of Brewing Better Beer, and Three-time Ninkasi Award Winner
"With home and craft brewing widely practiced, next-level direction will be welcome, and the authors bring more than 30 years of combined experience to this informative, playful guide. Beechum (The Everything Homebrewing Book) and Conn (contributor, Craft Beer for the Homebrewer: Recipes from America's Top Brewmasters) are accomplished brewers and serve on the American Homebrewers Association Governing Committee. While the heart of the work addresses experimentation, adequate coverage is given to basic ingredients, equipment, and techniques. The "Favorite Experimental Styles" chapter particularly reflects the book's utility by exploring these fashions, then adding variations so fellow brewers get a feel for moving from the known to the unknown. The final section, "The Experiments," highlights the science and community behind brewing and invites readers to "reportâ?¿results and discuss them" at the book's website. The detailed index enables easier navigation of the text. VERDICT With this much talent on tap, readers won't be disappointed. Recommended for beginners (but not complete novices) and veteran home brewers who enjoy a challenge or want to experiment with their craft." - Library Journal
"From the most basic brewing recipe to the craziest concoction you have ever brewed, experimentation is the key to tracking your progress. In this fantastic book, Drew and Denny provide the structure needed to unleash the endless secrets of brewing, one beer and one experiment at a time!" - Jaime Floyd, Owner and Brewer at Ninkasi Brewing
