Hey all,


I am looking at expanding my "brew library" and was wonder what books people had out there. Especially what books have people got that dramtically changed either the quality of there beer or there understanding of the process.


Cheers

Three must haves...

1) How to Brew - John J. Palmer
2) Brewing Classic Styles - Jamil Z and John P
3) Desgigning Great Beers - R Daniels
There's many more, but you can't go wrong with these three.

Good luck

Cheers

+ 1 those above.
I'd also recommend "The Home Brewers Answer Book" by Ashton Lewis as a good troubleshooting guide to accompany John Palmers' HTB.
Found it in a bargain bin at Borders and use it often.

How to brew book is better IMO. More info in a better format that makes it easier to digest.

IMO u don't need Laurie stric's joy if home rewind AND how to brew. They are very similar in what info they r trying to convey. I was going to buy both when starting out but reviewed both and decided only 1 was necessary. Which one is probably personal preference.
Numbers 5,6,7 completely agree with.

Take it anyway u like. if people didn't ask the same questions every couple of weeks (incl 2 wkd ago) they might get a differant answer. Sone of us have taken time to provide info for others to use and get a little tired of people not pitting in a little effort to find the info.
