I have since read the rest of the book and can say that Palmer really knows his stuff. Everything you will learn is tried and true and should help even the most experience brewers to brew better beer!
Highly recommend it.
Made my second Batch spectacular, this shows how good this book is.
Overall, if you think you are going to read this book and understand it all the first time through, you might be disappointed. If you are already an advanced brewer, then you might be disappointed (but please don't give it a poor rating because of that, the title clearly explains it is a beginner's book). I use it as a reference now and reread stuff when I want to gain more of an understanding. I can't believe I missed First-Wort hopping the first two times I read the book, but then again, it didn't matter at first, I just needed to focus on elementary hopping techniques. Now that I am getting more advanced, I can use the First-Wort hopping technique and understand why I would may want to use it.
Anyway, great book and it will probably be critical in my continuing education on brewing. I would recommend it for anyone just starting out or wanting to move on to all-grain from extract brewing.
"How to brew" really goes into detail on the hobby, from making starter cultures to reading a water analysis report from your water supplier. While I did learn quite a bit from reading this book and will use it as a reference in the future...I had a few disappointments too.
1. Really in depth information
2. Gives mathematical formulas to figure out different aspect of beer, like gravity and color.
3. Directions for extract brewing and all grain brewing.
4. Directions how to build some of your own equipment..like wort chillers and lauter tuns.
1. Not many recipes
2. Hop and yeast choices really incomplete, and only generic information on the ones listed.
3. No description of different beer style or how to brew them.
4. Directions can be a little hart to follow and are a little dated.
5. Needs more pictures to help the reader follow.
The cover of the book says, "how to brew beer right the first time". So, all of us beginners might find it hard to follow...so I don't recommend it as a 1st book. I do recommend, "Home brewing for dummies" as a 1st book, and I also recommend "beersmith 2" software to download onto your computer, It has all of those calculations I mentioned before all built in...making home brew easy and fun.
