Overview

"How to brew, ferment and enjoy world-class beers at home."

Making beer at home is as easy as making soup George Hummel smoothly guides the reader through the process of creating a base to which the homebrewer can apply a myriad of intriguing flavorings, such as fruits, spices and even smoke. There are also outstanding and easy recipes for delicious meads, tasty ciders and great sodas -- all of which can be made in a home kitchen and with minimal equipment.

Using Hummel's easy-to-follow instructions and thorough analysis of the flavor components of beer, a novice homebrewer can design recipes and make beers to suit any taste or craving. Knowing exactly what's in a beer has additional benefits -- homebrewers can easily avoid the chemical additives traditionally found in mass-produced commercial beers. As an added bonus, the recipes are categorized according to their degree of difficulty, so new brewers can find the recipes that match their comfort level and then easily progress onto new skills.

These 200 tantalizing beer recipes draw their inspiration from the Americas and around the world. They include: Irish amber American/Texas brown California blonde Bavarian hefeweizen Multi-grain stout Imperial pilsner Pre-Prohibition lager Golden ale Scottish 60 shilling Belgium dubble German bock Raspberry weizen Vanilla cream stout Flemish red & brown Standard dry sparkling mead

There is also a comprehensive glossary that virtually guarantees readers will find answers to every question about ingredients and equipment. Packed with practical advice and effectively designed, "The Complete Homebrew Beer Book" is like having a personal brewmaster overseeing and guiding each creation.

Unlike other brew-your-own-beer books, this title from award-winning homebrewer George Hummel offers little in the way of wordy preambles or "you can do it" pep talks. After a short rundown of the equipment and the basic steps, Hummel methodically walks readers through over 200 recipes, starting with relatively simple and approachable beers like an American Amber and an India Pale Ale, before moving on to more complex fare such as American Barley Wine, a pre-Prohibition lager. All the classics are here, as well as more esoteric recipes for a Cranberry Wheat, a Smoked Pumpkin Ale, Chipotle Amber, and a Thai Lemongrass with Galanga. Hummel even offers recipes for 7 gluten-free variations on Pale Ale, lager and others, enabling tipplers with Celiac disease or other dietary restrictions to enjoy a cold brew as well. Salient tips, such as using spring instead of distilled water, repeated instructions on how to dechlorinate tap water, charts on hops and their applications, as well as some troubleshooting advice help ensure consistent results. Brewers accustomed to relying on ready-made kits may find this from-scratch approach intimidating, but Hummel's thorough and clear instructions inspire confidence and cre-ativity, which will surely readers off to their local brewer's supply store or web site.
