Comments about How to Brew:
vital text to any home-brewer, especially one starting out or in their early stages of learning. outlines pretty much everything you need to know, and goes into fair detail where needed too. doesn't get overly tied up in scientific explanation - refers to other texts that might add more detail in those areas. that said, some of the writing is a little "jumpy" and not totally clear in parts. also, would be great if there were a few more diagrams to illustrate what was spoken of in the text. all in all though, a very good book! 4+stars for sure.
