I recently hired a new employee and over lunch he mentioned that he homebrews. Well I’ll be! Thing is, he tells me it’s not that hard, doesn’t cost too much and tastes great. I like the sound of all of that. So of course my eye light up when I come across this book only hours later.

Amelia Slayton Loftus shares her expert knowledge in this comprehensive guide that includes everything homebrewers of all levels need to know to brew delicious, organic beer. She covers the whys and hows of organic brewing, things to consider when buying equipment, and everything you need to know about organic ingredients (what makes them different, how to get them, and how to make substitutions). She also offers more than 30 irresistible recipes. You’ll learn how to brew sustainably by growing ingredients yourself, recycling water, using solar energy, and achieving zero waste. Loftus also includes information on developing new recipes, tips for honing competition skills, and a tasting guide to different beer styles. Even if you’re not ready to set up shop, its definitely a great read.

The book is available as a Kindle edition ($9.99) or as a paperback for $14.49. Enjoy!
