100 Common Problems Explored and Explained
Paperback ISBN: 1631593080
The Homebrewer's Problem Solver provides the information you need to avoid brewing problems and make good beer. Craft beer has exploded in popularity over the past few years, and for many beer lovers the natural progression is to try their hand at homebrewing. Once the preserve of a handful of dedicated aficionados, homebrewing is now more accessible and more popular than ever. Making beer is simple, right? Just take three ingredients - grain, yeast, water - mix them up, and let them ferment. Well, there's a lot more to brewing than that. And as anyone who has tried their hand at homebrewing knows, there's a big difference between the theory and the practice. The key to bridging that gap is spotting the signs of trouble and knowing how to respond. Whether you're a first-timer trying out a new hobby or an old hand looking to produce a finely crafted artisan ale, The Homebrewer's Problem Solver provides the information you need to nip problems in the bud -- and, better still, to avoid them in the first place. It contains 100 common homebrew snags and setbacks, spelling out the underlying causes and offering practical solutions learned by the author through years of experience. Handily divided into the key stages of the brewing process, The Homebrewer's Problem Solver will help you make a perfect porter, wicked weissbier, or awesome ale.
