The complete guide for beginner and intermediate distillers. Make your own brew at home!

”If you’re going to invest the $100 or so to get a basic equipment and recipe kit, then you’ll want to take care in ensuring that your first batch is brewed correctly.” –Rick Morris, HowBrewBeer

The Joy of Home Distilling is covers nearly every facet of distilling:

  • Step-by-step instructions for the different processes, from bucket to bottle
  • The difference between spirit types and how to produce each
  • What yeast is, what it does, and how to ensure that you get a strong, complete fermentation
  • What distillation is and common misconceptions about the process
  • Legalities surrounding distilling alcohol at home
  • Carbon filtering—when it’s necessary, when to filter, and why you filter
  • Flavoring and aging your spirits
  • Keeping safety first when working with flammable materials, such as ethanol
    Yeast styles and nutritional requirements
  • Different methods of distillation and equipment
    Post-distillation process
  • And of course, fun drink recipes! (Try the Mudslide or the Cherry Bomb!)

Author Rick Morris, who has been selling distillation equipment for over 25 years, even includes his own recipes for different types of spirits and drink recipes. By learning not just how to distill, but also what is happening at each step and why it is needed, readers will be armed with the information they need to experiment with their own spirits and concoct their own recipes. Easy to understand even for a first-time distiller, The Joy of Home Distilling is sure to become your number one distilling resource.

The Seven Moods of Craft Beer: 350 Great Craft Beers from Around the World Kindle Edition

More Info

From the book description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

350 international craft beers are divided into seven categories–or moods–for drinking, including social, adventurous, poetic, bucolic, imaginative, gastronomic, and contemplative– ensuring the perfect beer for every occasion.

THE SEVEN MOODS OF CRAFT BEER brings together the best 350 beers from around the world and then divides them into specific moods meant as the perfect guide for what to drink, when.

There are beers that are social, like Funky Buddha Hope Gun from Florida, which are to be sipped in the backyard to the hum of conversation and kids playing. There are beers that are imaginative, like the Broken Dream from the UK, meant for contemplative nights with old friends. And there are gastronomic beers, like Sovina which pairs perfectly with a carnitas taco.
Each of the seven chapters offers profiles of approximately 50 beers that cover tasting notes, history and information on the brewery, and alcohol percentage. Sidebars throughout include histories of the world’s best bars and information on styles of beer, brewers and breweries, and the world’s most famous festivals.
