I'm excited to announce a new book that I had a hand in writing: Craft Beer for the Homebrewer
Last spring I was approached to help out with a homebrewing book and leapt at the offer. I joined a great beer team of Michael Agnew, Denny Conn, Matthew Schaefer, and Jordan Wiklund. The book just came out and yes I'm pretty biased, but I'm sure everyone who buys it will agree that it's fantastic.
It's essentially a “clone brew” book, but much better than that. The recipes came from the actual brewers. The other authors and I worked with the brewers to adapt the recipes to a five-gallon homebrew batch.The result? You can brew some of America's favorite commercial beers on your own.
I don't see the table of contents listed anywhere so I'll go ahead and tell you that there are 38 recipes in the book including such favorites as: Odell 90 Shilling, Stone Levitation Ale, Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale, Funkwerks Saison, Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat, and The Bruery Saison Rue.
