Making your own beer is surprisingly simple, very cost-effective, and healthy too. It's also a lot of fun - in fact it can be addictive.
'Home Brew' is a must-have manual for the novice brewer. It tells you everything you need to know to get started - the different styles of beer, the basic science of brewing, the ingredients and equipment you need, and step-by-step instructions for brewing your first batch. As well, there are advanced recipes to develop your technique and skills, a troubleshooting guide to common problems and their solutions, a glossary of technical terms, and a resources section listing suppliers in Australia and New Zealand as well as useful web links.
