Tremendous book. Not a how-to, but a why-to.
For my ducats, the best book on beer, period. Some great recipes (along with some pretty-out-there ones). A wonderful history of beer, some tasteful humor in there, the basics of brewing/fermentation--a beer compendium, really. Not a beginners' how-to book at all (too overwhelming), but so much about how beers have been brewed from what was, conceiveably, the beginnings of beer and fermented beverages.Extremely well written and edited, with tons of old ads, photos, illustrations, labels, and other beer-a-phernalia on every page. A history, but by no means a dull one. I read through it all the time, in no particular order, and find it fascinating.Worth it for his "Brew as if" near the beginning alone. Inspiring!

An excellent resource for brewers of all levels and styles.
This book not only gives a thorough run-down of the science, technique and general principles of homebrewing, but explores a great deal of the history behind how beer and brewing developed. It also tries to give the reader a lot of unusual ideas and techniques, not just to brew the recipes in the book but to get his own gears turning so he can create his own unusual beers. The recipes themselves look great, from classic styles to radical reinventions, and they're very clearly laid out. Randy Mosher's style is great - casual, amusing and very informative, and perfect for the content of the book. This is one of my go-to resources for brewing information and ideas, and I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Does this book cover all grain brewing/ recipes?
H I on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that book has a few AG recipes. This book is primarily about brewing with "unusual" ingredients, like fruits, herbs, and spices. If you'd like a good straightforward introduction to the process of All-Grain brewing itself, I'd recommend this book How to Brew by John Palmer. If you are looking for a good, straightforward recipe collection, I'd recommend Brewing Classic Styles by Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer. That said, Mosher is always a good read! His book "Tasting Beer" is one of the best.

I hope that helps!
