Title: How to brew by John Palmer
Post by: mthomebrew on February 04, 2014, 01:39:51 PM
Just received this book from Amazon and wow! I am blown away by the amount of information it contains. I'm pretty sure this is the last book on brewing I will ever need. I'm really excited to dive in and soak up all of the info. Any other books you guys have come across that would be a good addition to my brewing library?

Hi - Designing Great Beers by Ray Daniels is a good book to add to your collection.  I have found it very helpful when creating my own recipes based on classic styles. Also, it gives a bit of history of each style that is fun to read.

Best of luck with your brewing!

I got started with Charlie Papazian's The Complete Joy of Homebrewing, and once I went all grain I purchased The Homebrewer's Companion by the same author.

Other than Designing Great Beers, which is on my wish list, I have all three of the others.  If you intend to do many lagers, Brewing Lager Beer by Gregory J. Noonan might not be a bad choice either.
