However, the sheer volume of detail would bore a newcomer to brewing, or worse yet, scare him or her off. The beginner simply doesn't need this much highly-technical information. However, after that beginner gets a few batches under his belt, this book would be a good addition to his or her brewing library.
Thought the book tends to repeat itself a little as it describes the process, then re-describes the brewing process for practical use, it is well descriptive with paragraphs making perfect sense on a variety of levels of information. Once read by a beginner, he then has a great source for a step into higher understanding of the chemistry and biology behind brewing.
I put this book as THE BEST brewing book on my ever expanding beer book shelf.
Someone reviewed "New Brewing" and said that it is not really about brewing lager beers. This is not really true. Brewing lagers generally means that you are using the decoction method, and "New Brewing" is an excellent introduction to the decoction method. Information about lagering temperatures is readily available on the internet, and many home brewers dedicate a chest freezer and temperature controller for this purpose.
Pay attention to the parts of "New Brewing" that talk about measuring mash pH and the use of lower modified malts for brewing; these features of brewing lagers using the decoction method are very important and will warrant further investigation.
