    Halfway through the book I was already anticipating a 3 star review but that changed later on I was definitely enjoying it but the book promises to provide insights for both new and experienced brewers and I found it lacking in the latter caseHowever I soon noticed that I got really inspired by the many interesting recipes that the author shares in the remaining sections Beer brewing books with lots of recipes can be uite unoriginal and dry but Christensen managed to deviate from the usual paths and this resulted in many new ideas for my upcoming brewsTherefore I have to say that this is indeed a recommendation for both newcomers in the world of homebrewing and people that have already made a lot of batches It clearly explains the process in a logical order while also providing some interesting twists

    I like this book It is clearly written and covers a range of beer styles The casual home brewer might be put off by the fact that the book focuses on all grain brewing However Christensen through her discussion of one gallon brewing shows that all grain brewing is something that even the infreuent home brewer can accomplish without difficulty and a huge investment in euipment The book deserves a place in my collection of fermentation books

    This book is the perfect compliment for the beginning intermediate or even advanced home brewer; but so the intermediate with a few successful homebrews under their belt Her style is upbeat practical and insightful Her methodology 1 Define a concept 2 Present a few recipes to validate her argument 3 Give closing thoughts variations and opinions about the methodology and where theses examples can be personalized and skewed towards different tastes In my opinion the book is a master stroke for its designed purpose Brew Better Beer And in doing so making a finessed Brewer

    A great book for beginners and intermediate brewers Walks the beginner through the process of extract partial extract and then all grain brewing all using the same basic recipe Lots of easy starter recipes as well as some very creative brews that build on the basic skills As a bonus the photography is exceptional
