Last week I started looking at the whole “how do you create your own brew recipes?” introspection. After consulting my current brew literature I came to the conclusion that I had officially outgrown my current library of “The Joy of Home Brewing” (still a classic and a great reference) and “Homebrew for Dummies.”
something up on the Beer Advocate
forums asking for some recommendation on reference material for the brewer looking to start making his/her own versions of classic styles. There were about 10 responses and all of them agreed on one thing; the Ray Daniels book “Designing Great Beers”
was the way to go.
So I went ahead and ordered a used copy from Amazon (yes I am cheap, I am using blogger too) to see for myself. I just got started on it, but I was skimming around on it and this looks like a legit source for brew info. I will be referencing it in the future so I thought I would start with the endorsement of the book.
