The book arrived promptly and the description proved to be accurate. I have already used it as a reference for designing two brews both of which look to be pretty good. I won't know for sure for another month of course. Not really for novices but a useful reference for brewers with some experience and good equipment.

Everything you wanted to know about British Ale19 Feb. 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
Although this is an older book, its got lots of good information. It has pretty good recipes for practically every beer made in the British Isles, though I haven't tried brewing any yet. The main reason I gave only 4 stars was twofold: First, all the recipes are in metric (liters, grams, etc), and it makes it a little tricky to convery 22 liters to 5 US gallons, along with adjusting the hops, grain, extract. And second, there is no discussion on yeast strains for the various ales, stouts, barleywines, etc throughout the book. All in all good for the information.
