Dr. Christopher L. Brown's Microbrewing Science takes the seemingly daunting task of home-brewing and provides a step-by-step, process-oriented approach with an attention to detail that will have readers learning how to make their own beer. By emphasizing a focused range of beer types, Brown instructs readers on how to maximize the quality of their home-brewing efforts and achieve reproducible results.* The costs associated with microbrewing can add up and whether readers seek to invest heavily in equipment or pursue a more modest approach, Brown's Microbrewing Science lays out methods for all price ranges. Brown explains how to use advanced, specialized brewing equipment for advanced brewers as well as how to use common household items to streamline the brewing process for the novice. From yeast culture fermentation and ingredient selection to sanitation and bottling, Microbrewing Science helps readers avoid common brewing mistakes and end up with a finished product to be proud of as well as the skills necessary to become a brew-master. *Warning: Readers of this book have been known to become wildly popular at barbecues and Superbowl parties. Making quality home-brew is not for the timid, the anti-social, or lovers of watery, flavorless beer.

A Great Buy! Oct 6, 2007
Don't let the title scare you. 'Doc Brown' takes a scientific, but accessible method on microbrewing. You'll be armed with all the guns needed to make some respectable brew: A good collection of tastes, a great style for sanitation and brewing method, and everything you'll ever need to know to keep those little yeasts smiling.
Home brewing gets a bad rap from people who force friends to drink their rotting hop water. This book helped me get my beer to a level where people ASKED ME FOR MORE. People will drink one of whatever you make, to be nice, but a brewer can't hold back a smile when they're told "Your beer was great!"
Consider the cost of materials these days for brewing materials. This book costs less that making two six-packs. If you're willing to spend some cash on the right pot, the right brewing bag, and the right materials, why not the right book?
