  • The Complete Joy of Homebrewing (Fourth Edition)
Product Details

The book that started thousands of us in the hobby has been updated for the new millennium. Beer critic Michael Jackson calls it a "lifestyle manual, a philosophical tract, and a work of subversive literature." The third edition still features Charlie Papazian's easygoing, conversational writing style, taking readers from first extract batch through all-grain brewing. All of Charlie's well-known recipes (Toad Spit Stout, Goat Scrotum Ale, etc.) are back, with several new ones to boot. Best of all, much of the dated info from the 1978 second edition has been revised to reflect the greater quality and variety of ingredients and equipment now available to homebrewers.

I keep coming back to this book after 3 years of home brewing. It has everything in there that I could possibly need to know and is written in language that is easy to comprehend. I have been taking very good care of it and reference it a lot. Plus its a joy to read as Charlie has done a great job of adding his human character into the text. And don't forget "Relax, don't worry, have a home brew"

A must-have for homebrewers
An earlier edition inspired me to make many batches of homebrew. It's fun and entertaining to read, while teaching important information.Thought it was time to retire the old one so I got this (third) edition for the updated information. Have read all of Charlie's books and wish there were more.If you only buy one homebrewing book it should be this one. Would give it 10 stars if I could.

I started homebrewing a couple years ago. My brothers turned me onto it. This was the liturature they recomended, years later I still use it. It has lead me from my begginings with a brew kettle and a couple fermenting buckets, to today brewing multiple batches a month, a couple carboys bubbling at a time, all grain brewing, and I'm continueing to perfect and expand my hobbie. Its all in there!

Fun, easy to read and informative
My first homebrewing book and by far my favorite. It's written in a style that's fun and easy to read. Recently bought the latest edition to replace the old yellowed one I've had since 1993. Also bought a couple copies for my homebrewing friends.

This is the best book, got me started and sent me to all grain! The home brewers companion is a must have to, Charlie Papzian is the cats pajamas!

This is the book that really got me excited about homebrewing. The "don't worry about it" attitude is a nice reminder that this is a hobby. It should be fun. You can get geeky, but ultimately if you aren't having a good time, why bother? Can't recommend it enough.
