Palmer gives you the science behind brewing, 26 Sept. 2010
This book is an excellent reference item for anyone engaged in home brewing or looking to get started. technique and tips are all backed up with the science behind brewing. As such it helps to further the reader's understanding of what is a very large and complex subject.
For non-American home brewers: Do not be put off by the references to American beers and brewing. Whilst alot of the book is targeted to the American style of brewing and Malt Extract brewing, there is a vast amount of useful information here that is applicable to all styles of brewing.
A must have for the home brewer's library.
