If you’ve ever complained about a watered-down tasting glass of lager, wondered just what is causing that certain flavor in your favorite porter, or lamented the price of your favorite craft beer, then it might be time to try perfecting your own brew at home. Whether you’re an established beer snob or just want to try your hand at homebrewing,

The Homebrewer’s Handbook will teach you everything you need to know to get started on this increasingly popular hobby. Teaching you all about beer and the few very simple components required to make it (malted barley, hops, yeast, and water), this comprehensive guide includes an overview of:

  • The brewing process
  • Detailed explanations of extract, partial-mash, and all-grain brewing
  • The best equipment for each process and methods for cleaning and sanitizing
  • Suggestions on how to correct batches with off-flavors and aromas
  • How to make bottling your beer easy
  • A full glossary
  • And much more

Matthew Schaefer uses his years of expertise to show you how to control flavor, body, and aroma nuances to craft your perfect bottle of beer. Whether you’re brewing to share with friends and family or simply for the beautiful craft of the process, this book will guide you from start to finish in making a great-tasting beer.
