Casey – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Modern Homebrew Recipes: Exploring Styles and Contemporary Techniques (Paperback) If you are a homebrewer you NEED this book. I was blown away by the sheer amount of information provided. Gordon covers his exact methods for brewing award winning beer and includes a multitude of a tried & true recipes. I am extremely impressed with this book and I have already started planning my first brew sessions based on his recipes. I am also impressed with the lack of fluff. This book is about making better beer. I have been brewing for over two decades and I rarely find anything new when I read a brewing book these days. This book is the exception. Highly recommended. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 5 of 5 people found the following review helpful It advanced my techniques, June 23, 2015 By RICHARD HANSEN (Layton Utah) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Modern Homebrew Recipes: Exploring Styles and Contemporary Techniques (Paperback) I happen to appreciate Grodon’s techniques on how to brew better -his latest book does not fall short. I am in the process of brewing some of his new receipes presented in this book: Christmas Saison, Blonde Classic and later Mailbock, and Oktoberfest in early July. I appreciate his attention to detail, how to read a recipe, how to adjust a recipe for your system. For me, this is a very good book because it helps me advance my techniques in brewing a better beer. Gordon’s presentation is clear and concise. It also encouraged me to make better use of the Beersmith2 software, by adding brew notes before I brew, to edit the ingredient line with whole hops and correct the alpha % for all hops used so as to match the IBU’s, to append first wort or worldpool steep to the hop lines and to add vorlauf to a malt, or add the Candy surup at flameout. Just detail, that maybe I should have been doing, but now find it as a requirement for me. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful One of the Best of its Kind on the Market, September 1, 2015 By jonathan paton – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Modern Homebrew Recipes: Exploring Styles and Contemporary Techniques (Paperback) I’ve made three beers from this book–the Mexican Vienna Lager, Oktoberfest and the Maibock. The Vienna Lager is just beginning the fermentation, the Oktoberfest has been lagering and the Maibock is now finished. The Vienna lager is already great and it still has a ways to go. Halfway through a three month lagering, the Oktoberfest appeared to be the best beer I ever made. Crisp, clear with a strong malty backbone. In a word: perfect. But I used the phrase “appeared to be the best beer I ever made.” I say “appeared” because I had not tried the Maibock. OMG! The Maibock is AMAZING! I have to make some pretzels just to go with it. We live in a world that’s consumed by IPAs, but I have to tell you these lagers–if you follow the recipes (including the pain in the neck decoctions) — are soooo freaking good. They capture why the Germans are celebrated as having some of the best beers of all time. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. The book is more than just lagers, though. It has virtually every style you could want–from IPAs to stouts to just about everything. The recipes are well thought out and easy to understand. He even tells you what additions to put in RO water to make it style specific. At the end of the day, though, it’s about how well the recipes turn out. I’ve been making these beers for an Oktoberfest party I’m planning and I cannot wait to see peoples’ jaw drop when they try them. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
