Mika Laitinen lives, writes, and brews in Finland, just a
stone's throw from the traditional sahti heartland, where
traditional farmhouse ale culture still thrives. His articles on
sahti have appeared in several beer magazines, including Brew
Your Own and Zymurgy, and he writes about local Nordic
beer culture on his website Brewing Nordic (www.brewingnordic.com).
Randy Mosher is the author of Tasting Beer, Radical
Brewing, Mastering Homebrew, A Beer for All Seasons, and The
Brewer's Companion. He lives in Chicago, Illinois.
"An invaluable resource. . . . Mika Laitinen's exhaustive research
and experimentation has resulted in a fascinating, highly readable,
and eminently accessible guidebook for brewing like a Viking."
Jereme Zimmerman, author of Make Mead Like a Viking and Brew Beer
Like a Yeti
"Just when you think the canon of beer literature cannot grow any richer, a book like Mika Laitinen's comes along. This is a fascinating and substantive account of a typically overlooked corner of the brewing universe, and is sure to stand as the definitive word on traditional farmhouse ales for quite some time." Tom Acitelli, author of The Audacity of Hops
