For historical purposes only!

This book is chock full of outdated techniques, many of which will potentially ruin any batch of beer made following them or cause serious injury from exploding bottles. I've brewed for years and the advice given in these pages is shockingly bad.

The original text was published in the 60s and was not updated to reflect the vast, vast improvement of equipment, ingredients and technique available today.

If you are a beginner, please don't read this book. It will bring nothing but sorrow. Try John Palmer's "How to Brew."

If you want to read why homebrewing had such a bad reputation, or what we had to deal with in the infancy of the modern homebrewing scene, this is the book for you. It was interesting to be reminded of what we did then to appreciate how good we have it now.
