The Brewer's Apprentice : An Insider's Guide to the Art and Craft of Beer Brewing, Taught by the Masters
Brewing craft and artisanal beer has become a labor of love for enthusiasts and epicures the world over, with new people joining the ranks every year. The Brewer's Apprentice is a behind-the-scenes guide to all aspects of this ancient art. However, instead of simply sharing brewing recipes, tasting guides, or buying recommendations as many other books do, our book gives readers unique insights into craft brewing culture, and lets the "masters" share their own expertise. In a series of in-depth profiles, the legends, innovators, and rising stars of the beer world share their deep reserves of brew knowledge, insider tips, recipes, and more. Inside you'll learn: sourcing the best ingredients, brewing "locally" and seasonally, farm-to-table brewing, fine-tuning your home-brewing skills, brewing chemistry, nontraditional ingredients, barrel-aging beers, and extreme brews, meads, lambics, ciders and other classic brews.
