technical, but useful and informative 21 April 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Guinard is too technical in spots, and those chapters go right over my head. Otherwise, this is a good introduction to brewing these rare brews. One thing is needed, a list of sources for the unusual ingredients, like aged hops. Altogether a good and useful treatise

Acidic beer book but with acidic market price 25 April 2010
By J. Cox - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So my first thoughts on buying this were why is this great book out of print? Is a $13 book worth the now hyped up $45- 55. It's a great book. It's focus is more to the wild Lambic/ Gueuze style beers, with little on the Oud Bruin and east Flanders red and Brown sour beers. Hopefully it will come back into print, for the masses, certainly with the sour beers becoming more and more popular. With this in mind, if it does not go into print again, it may only become harder and more expensive to buy. Maybe buy "Wild Brews" by Jeff Sparrow, this aslo is a awesome book, but at a fair price.

Too bad its out-of-print 27 Jun. 2007
By J. Cook - Published on
Format: Paperback
Excellent book on the history and chemistry of brewing Lambic beers. Unfortunately it is out of print. Too bad it looks like Brewers Publications isn't ever going to bring it back.
Lambic 16 Dec. 2011
By Frank Moskos - Published on
Format: Paperback
to be sure, an excellent book of the history of the brewing of these facinating beers. but, written in 1991 and dated, without mention of new liquid yeast cultures. also, the mashing techniques get glossed over. plus, one of the big components to these beers is time, and the author seems to believe that a suitable version can be brewed with these slow fermenting yeasts in a short time frame. definitely should be read if you are interested in these beers, but then to be followed up with "Wild Brews" and the liddl lambic lesson (online article) for more practical and modern information. after talking to the publisher, they may be re-releasing an update, and it would be much appreciated.
