The River Cottage franchise has put out book after book on do it yourself farming and food projects. In their most recent endeavor, The River Cottage Booze Handbook, they rely on the expertise of author and radio show host John Wright to take on the fascinating and wonderful art of home brewing.
Beer, wine, cider, and harder alcohols are all discussed as are where and how to find the right natural ingredients for that perfect flavor. The science and chemistry of fermentation are also talked about at length with stories and humor about the craft sprinkled throughout.
Most importantly, this book is full of detailed recipes for just about everything imaginable. Organized by seasons, these recipes tell you exactly when and how to start making your brew while still leaving lots of room for tweaking the flavor to your desired taste.
One look through these pages and you will be thirsty.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
