Homebrew "bible" revised, updated.
Forget model planes and crossword puzzles. Nowadays one of the fastest growing hobbies is homebrewing one's own beer. For the past five years, one book, Charlie Papazian's "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" has been considered the homebrew bible.
Now, with over 100,000 copies of the original text in print, Papazian has revised and updated the book to include more recipes, more charts and graphs, a comprehensive appendix and even more extensive brewing techniques.
"The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" is a comprehensive guide that covers all three levels of interest and experience. It is divided into three sections - one for the beginner, one for the intermediate and one for the more advanced brewer. For the beginner, Papazian provides methods guaranteed make and enjoy good beer.
For the intermediate brewer, he explains how to experiment with malt extracts and barley and how to learn the intricacies of good fermentation. In this section, Papazian also gives several recipes.
In the section for advanced brewers, Papazian explains that homebrewing can become an intricate process, involving enzymes and grains rather than malts and powders. He notes, "Advanced homebrewing means appreciating and being involved on an intimate level with the entire brewing process, considering each phase singularly and as part of a whole."
