A HOMEBREWER'S GUIDE TO THIS SITE

There are loads of resources here for you, from books to appearance schedules to useful tools. Here's a few places to start:

Books

Mastering Homebrew

My latest book is an all-purpose homebrewing book with an emphasis on ingredients, flavor and the recipe development process and creativity. Also brings a global point-of-view into homebrewing. Plenty of unique graphics and other tools.

 

Radical Brewing

An exploration of creativity in brewing, both modern and historical. While this was not written to be a brewer's first brewing book, there is plenty of theory and practice for it to work quite well in this role. 120+ recipes!

 

Tasting Beer

This is not strictly a homebrewing book, but your ability to taste strictly limits the quality of your beer. Knowing when and how a beer misses the mark in terms of style or technical quality help correct for next time and vastly improves your beer.

 

This enjoyable romp through a year of styles and occasions will give you a feel for the richness of seasonal brewing and plenty of ideas.
