This review is from: Radical Brewing: Tales and World-Altering Meditations in a Glass (Paperback)
This is not a book for the beginner - I'd recommend CAMRA's Complete Home Brewing by Graham Wheeler or David Line's classic Big Book of Brewing for the neophyte all-grain brewer. What it is, however, is a source of inspiration for the brewer wanting to advance in the craft, seeking styles of brewing to try, and wanting to be adventurous. The book is packed with information, hints, suggestions, anecdotes, it's a joy to read. It's the exact opposite of those books that aim to help you recreate a commercial brew - it's all about pushing your brewing in new directions, and I love it. Within two days of buying the book, I was cooking up a beer that had elements of a US IPA, the English equivalent, and a Belgian Strong Ale. Once you've tried creating replica Barnsley Bitter or Highgate Mild, and once you've finessed your own standard bitter recipe you can recreate at will, it's good to go to the cutting edge, and this wonderful book will guide and delight you along the way. Like the idea of a Brown Ale with roasted walnuts in the mash? Want to combine US hop types and hopping rates with British beer styles? Fancy yourself as a Belgian Trappist brewer with a view to the wider world? Look no further.
