Are you interested in learning to homebrew beer? To capture that microbrewery experience in the comfort of your own home? To charge your friends exorbitant prices for a pint? Ok, I'm kidding about that last point, but How to Brew: Everything You Need To Know To Brew Beer Right The First Time is a good starting point for the budding home beer brewer. Before you start, brewing may seem like a tricky and complicated process - and it can be, but John Palmer leads you through each step carefully, so you'll soon be able to make batches with confidence.
Palmer is well-known for his excellent advice and techniques on brewing. His self-published book under this same title was one of the most read and referenced brewing books ever. It's available online at How to Brew, though this newest version of the book is more up-to-date, with information utilizing the newest technologies and techniques available to home brewers. Check out the site to get a feel for the process, but pick up a copy of the book when you are ready to get down to business.
