Beer Craft is the ultimate resource, covering everything aspiring homebrewers need to know, including: - anatomy of beer: water, hops, malted grain, and yeast (the big four)--what they do and how to choose the right kinds - equipment: what's needed, what to buy, and where to buy it - basic steps: mashing the grains, boiling the wort, hopping, pitching the yeast, fermenting, then bottling (and drinking!) - advanced tips for the enthusiast: customizing labels, caps, and six-pack carriers for one's homebrew With suggestions for brewers on a budget (you don't really need that wort chiller) and a focus on small batches that don't require 20 pounds of grain, Beer Craft supplements more than a dozen basic recipes with guidelines for inventing your own beers. Way more than a recipe book or an instruction manual, it's a tool kit to empower newbies and veteran brewers alike"--Provided by publisher.
