An Enthusiast's Guide to Homebrew Beers : Making Ales, Lagers and Unique Hybrid Styles
"An Enthusiast's Guide to Homebrew Beers" is a recipe-driven resource for aspiring home brewers who are interested in recreating these specialty beers at home, but don't have the time to learn the in-depth science and lore behind home-brewing. As such, all recipes are malt-syrup based (the simplest brewing method) with variations for partial-grain brewing. While recipes are included for classic beer styles such as ales and lagers, the book has a unique emphasis on hybrid styles that use fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices to create unique flavour combinations. Once their brew is complete, readers can turn to section three, 'The Rewards of Your Labour', to receive guidance on presentation including corking, bottle selection and labelling as well as detailed information on food pairings, including recipes for beer-infused dishes and fun ideas for themed dinners that allow the reader to share their creations with family and friends. "An Enthusiast's Guide to Homebrew Beers" is all a home-brewer needs for a source of information and inspiration, and is sure to take their brewing to new heights.
