Al Korzonas is one of the most knowledgeable writers in the field of amateur brewing. He has been brewing since 1987, has won over 100 awards for his beers, has written many articles on beer and brewing, and has attained the rank of Master in the Beer Judge Certification Program. This book is unique in that the reader need only read chapter two to brew their very first batch of beer. Al explains all aspects of brewing in terms that anyone can understand and provides more troubleshooting information than most of the other homebrewing books combined. The book is fully referenced, contains more than 50 recipes and an entire chapter dedicated to teaching the reader how to create their own original recipes.From the Author:
I'm passionate about beer and brewing. After more than a decade of homebrewing and helping others with their brewing problems over the Internet, I decided to write a book about it in an effort to reach more homebrewers (current and potential). Homebrewing is a hobby that allows you to get involved at a variety of levels. Some may choose to just brew the same recipe over and over, just to keep the refrigerator stocked with beer. Others may choose to try a new style or recipe on each batch. The most dedicated homebrewers can investigate the science behind the art of brewing. I wrote this book with the intention of providing a resource to all three types of homebrewers. You can read it cover-to-cover or you can simply read chapter two and begin brewing, referring back to the book to solve any problems with your beer should they ever arise.
