Extreme Brewing is a recipe-driven resource for aspiring home brewers who want to recreate specialty beers at home, but don't have the time to learn the science and lore behind home brewing. All recipes are malt syrup based (the simplest brewing method) with variations for partial grain brewing. While recipes are included for classic beer styles--ales and lagers--Extreme Brewing has a unique emphasis on hybrid styles that use fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices to create unique flavor combinations. Once their brew is complete, readers can turn to section three, The Rewards of Your Labor, to receive guidance on presentation, including corking, bottle selection and labeling as well as detailed information on food pairings, including recipes for beer infused dishes and fun ideas for themed dinners that allow the reader to share their creations with family and friends.
This deluxe edition features 15 new brewing recipes from Dogfish Head and around the world (Italy, Brazil, New Zealand, Australia, UK, and Finland), as well as updated contents and a new introduction from Randy Mosher.
