Boulder, CO • May 2, 2017—Fully revised and updated, the latest release from Brewers Publications, How to Brew: Everything You Need to Know to Brew Great Beer Every Time by John Palmer, is the definitive guide to making quality beers at home. A perennial best seller since the release of the 3rd edition in 2006, How to Brew is a must-have to update every new and seasoned brewer’s library.
From ingredients and methods to recipes and equipment for brewing beer at home, How to Brew is loaded with valuable information on brewing techniques and recipe formulation. The completely revised and updated edition includes additional emphasis on Palmer’s top five brewing priorities: sanitation, fermentation temperature control, proper yeast management, the boil, and recipe development, as well as five new chapters covering malting and brewing strong beers, fruit beers, sour beers, and adjusting water for style.
“Owning How to Brew is like having a brewmaster as your best friend. In the 30-plus years since the American craft beer revolution got its start, countless brewing books have appeared. None, however, has achieved the status of How to Brew, which is thorough, comprehensive, and beautifully organized,” said Jim Koch, founder & brewer of Samuel Adams. “And now, this new expanded and enhanced edition improves on the original. It’s a considerable feat to create a book that is invaluable both to first-time brewers and professional brewmasters, but John has done it with a book that is essential for everyone who is serious about brewing.”
John Palmer is also co-author of Brewing Classic Styles and Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers. He was born and raised in Midland, Michigan, and graduated from Michigan Tech University. After 20 plus years in aerospace and medical devices, he now serves as publications director for the Master Brewers Association of the Americas.
Brewers Publications supports the mission of the Brewers Association by publishing books of enduring value for amateur and professional brewers as well as titles that promote understanding and appreciation of American craft beer. With over 50 titles to choose from, it’s the largest publisher of contemporary and relevant brewing literature for today’s craft brewers, homebrewers and beer enthusiasts.
