"What this book does is walk you through the various stages, helping you work out your flavours for your mash and above all else helps you work towards what you enjoy alongside how to introduce your hard work to other drinkers. All round a cracking book and one that for me will become a much thumbed guide to getting it right." --Falcata Times"What I really like is that this book provides a real insight to Craft beer brewing.It is a step by step guide with clear explanation and in an easy to follow language. The photos and sketches on almost all the pages make it even more useful and interesting." --Seduce Your Tastebuds
