After a couple of years of researching the subject of home brewing I've collected several very informative books on the subject. When it comes to information pertaining to actually brewing beer at home this is my absolute favorite book on the shelf due to the amount of information jammed into its 338 pages. I've been using this book for just a little over a month now and have full confidence that it will be my go-to reference book for brewing from now on as questions arise on the subject
Palmer covers all the various methods from extract kits to full out all grain brewing. and does it in a way that leaves little, if any, unanswered questions. Palmer does a great job of explaining the processes and the science behind every step of home brewing.
The book does, in many areas, read much like a text book but I don't know another format that would relay such precise information on subjects such as water chemistry, starch conversion, or infusion techniques. Much of the information is WAY more than the average Joe would need to brew beer but the title does say "Everything You Need to Know...." The information is relayed in such a way that I've found it best to take it at face value, and study the minute details on an as-needed basis.
In my homebrew group, we have all since picked up this book, and we all have it with us on our brew days. This is pretty much going to become any new brewers 'homebrew bible'
This book literally walks you through ever stage of homebrewing, explaining each stage, some of the science behind it, and the whats and whys of how things work in your brew.
If you are planning on homebrewing, even from a box kit, i highly recommend you pick this book up and thumb through it. Once you get past the textbookyness of it, it quickly becomes an indispensable part of you homebrew kit.
This book is chock-full of critical information for the beginner, the intermediate, and the advanced brewer, regardless of whether you brew with kit, extract, or all-grain recipes. I have since become quite adept at homebrewing (IMHO), but I still find myself returning to Palmer's book, again and again, to avail myself of the wealth of info in this book that continues to allow me to refine my methods and recipes. It's absolutely uncanny how the book seems to grow with you... I would give it six stars if I could!
The book is written for someone with basic knowledge of chemistry and microbiology and for a bench chemist that knows the difference between anions and cations.
I will be rereading it when i have a couple dozen batches brewed to pick up on the subtle points John makes.
