Brewing Books & Publications
The list below spans fifteen books that will hopefully guide your journey and help you become a better brewer. It starts with books for beginners, broadly covering the basic topics of making beer. Then it moves into books covering more intermediate and advanced brewing techniques and topics. As you near the bottom of the list the books will get more technical and the subject matter narrows. I purposely avoided any books on specific beer styles because I wanted to keep the subject matter pertinent to all brewing, no matter the style. Some of the books, I feel, are required reading for any homebrewer worth their beer, others play to specific interests.
There are three books that I started with in my library. I believe each one of them will help make you a better brewer. The benefit of getting an e-book is that the delivery is instant. This book is widely referred to as one of the most important home brewing books. John J. Palmer covers everything from the basics to fine details of brewing. If you could only get one book, then this is the one I would buy first.
2) How To Brew: Everything You Need To Know To Brew Beer Right The First Time
If you want to be a better brewer, understand what is going on in the fermenter and really push up your home brew beer to the next level will want to pick up a few home brewing books. If you have followed the blog at all you will know that I am a big fan of reading, refining and then practicing what you have learned. Where to start, though? There are so many home brew books available and depending on your level of skill you might want to choose a more advanced one or a complete beginners book. I will start this list though with the first home brewing book I ever bought. Out of all the home brewing books I have on the bookshelf, this one, in particular, has by far the most recipes.
