Book Description Duncan Baird Publishers, 2015. HARDCOVER. Condition: New. Duncan Baird Publishers. New. Dandelion beer. Yep, you read that right and no, it's not some hippy drink brewed by people in kaftans, skipping around fields and waving daisies in the air. This is a man's drink, a tough, no-nonsense, grassroots drink that will lead the home-brewing revolution.Well, one drink may not do all that but Brew it Yourself, a collection of home-grown brewing recipes, is sure to put the fizz back in Britain's fervor for home-brewing. The craft drinks market is undergoing a huge resurgence and authors Richard Hood and Nick Moyle (the Two Thirsty Gardeners) have taken their two great loves - alcohol and gardening - to create a list of more than 75 drink recipes using ingredients, either bought in their local supermarket or grown in their own backyard. With everything from nettle beer to horseradish vodka, Richard and Nick bring the art of brewing back to earth. Focusing on the ingredients as much as the end results, this book provides inspiration for people to turn a bag of fruit or vegetables from a supermarket or a pick-your-own farm, a surplus harvest, or a weed-infested yard into a successful and delicious drink. The book outlines the basic approaches to each drinks-making method and what each ingredient contributes to the recipe. Brew it Yourself also debunks myths, celebrates experimentation and takes the fear out of the science of fermentation. It proves that creating your own tasty alcoholic drinks doesn't need to be complicated, doesn't need to be costly and definitely doesn't need to be time-consuming.
