Introduction to brewing??
« on: December 24, 2014, 08:53:43 AM »
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to a comprehensive book about brewing for the beginer. I am currently doing extract kits which don't leave alot of room to play. I want to get into a more indepth process but i am unsure as to where to start and what i need to brew. If anyone could offer a suggestion on a book that would give me a good start i would really appreciate it.
Cheers

How to Brew by John Palmer is my favourite.

The first edition is available for free here - http://howtobrew.com/

thanks for the tip, i ended up getting "the complete joy of home brewing" 4th edit. Really good read and a great starting off point. I have pushed beyond the coopers kits and i am now doing a hybrid BIAB with an LME to bump me into the SG that i want (i like stronger beers +6% range). Had alot of really good tips and instructions on mashing for a new brewer.
