Its features include: Updated data on liquid yeasts, which have become a hot topic for brewers; 30 recipes in each of the classic beer styles of Germany, Belgium, Britain and the U.S.; extensive profiles of grains, malts, adjuncts, additives and sanitizers; recipe formulation charts in an easy-to-read spreadsheet format; detailed water analyses for more than 25 cities and 6 bottled waters; directories to hundreds of shops; and much more.

Title: Home Brewing: A Practical Guide to Crafting Your Own Beer, Wine and Cider

Home brewing is a creative, productive and rewarding hobby that is soaring in popularity. With beer, wine, cider and more to choose from, there's something for everyone to enjoy. The satisfaction of brewing at home can be achieved by anyone with a little bit of effort. This book provides a practical guide to fun and successful home brewing, with detailed information on the brewing process, equipment, ingredients and techniques.
The reader actually gets three books in one: a guide to home brewing, a guide to at-home winemaking, and a guide to making cider. Home Brewing is an invaluable resource for both novices with no experience and accomplished brewers who are looking to expand their repertoire. Home-tested recipes are provided for everything from easy, simple beverages to sophisticated contest-winning brews.
The author, a British brewing expert, shows how to create drinks using pure and high-quality ingredients. He shows how to make beverages that can, if desired, be made to organic standards completely free from unnecessary sugars, preservatives and other chemicals. Readers are encouraged to adapt recipes to their own taste, saving money while they enjoy the satisfaction of creating something truly unique and individual.
A section on making non-alcoholic and soft drinks ranges from classics like lemonade and cola to something with a twist, like strawberry cordial or ginger beer. Recipes are also included for creatively infusing vodkas and other spirits, such as pepper vodka (great for bloody marys), pink grapefruit vodka (a refreshing summer cooler), apple cinnamon vodka (hot apple cider to ring in the holidays) and more. Appropriately enough, this comprehensive brewing guide even offers hangover cures and recipes for morning-after breakfast remedies!
