    Depending upon how you view home brewing (or life), this may or may not be the book you have been looking for. Randy Mosher believes one should brew (and live) in a way that builds community and allows for individual expression. In contrast, Papazian's "Joy" focuses on having fun. Palmer's "How to Brew" focused on measuring everything, from water chemistry to fluid dynamics. But I read Mosher's books primarily for his exhortations to honor the history and culture of brewing, to be in touch with Depending upon how you view home brewing (or life), this may or may not be the book you have been looking for. Randy Mosher believes one should brew (and live) in a way that builds community and allows for individual expression. In contrast, Papazian's "Joy" focuses on having fun. Palmer's "How to Brew" focused on measuring everything, from water chemistry to fluid dynamics. But I read Mosher's books primarily for his exhortations to honor the history and culture of brewing, to be in touch with the community and culture in which you live, and to use brewing as a mode of personal, artistic expression. You will find all that here. Mosher's book is beautiful to look at. And it covers the landscape quite well, from ingredients, to recipe formulation to yeast management to considerations in building your brewery. If you don't intend to measure your beer, you might go with Papazian instead. If you think you will find Mosher's exhortations a distraction, stick with Palmer for his practical advice. But even if Mosher hadn't given me anything practical to think about (and he did), I would buy this for the attractiveness of the book and for his reminders that caring about beer gives us another way to care about one another.

    This is a weird book. It is trying to be the only homebrew book you need, but I don't think that is realistic. Sections on water chemistry and yeast biology for advanced brewers will confuse beginners while parts about extract brewing will bore the experienced brewers. That said, there is a ton of great information here and the design, including charts is excellent. Definitely worth checking out but you may need to be selective about which parts to read. I'll be referring back to the malt guide This is a weird book. It is trying to be the only homebrew book you need, but I don't think that is realistic.

    This was a good book and I believe it will be a great resource later in my brewing adventures; however, it is not for beginners, which I am right now. It is very technical and very informative.

    Fun, narrative style that gives a good crash course into brewing. It seeks to be an all in one sort of book which he admits is not possible, but his descriptions of the various techniques and fixes and styles and recipes are well written. I found his chapter on making and adapting recipes very useful as well as his charts and tables of ingredients and for these alone the book is worth owning and referencing.

This is a good book for the beginner looking to level up and as a refresher and reference book for those looking to up the consistency and quality of their beer.

    While it could be used by a beginning homebrewer, there is a lot of information in this book that could be overwhelming. For someone starting out, I would suggest John Palmer’s How to Brew instead. This book has a wealth of information on hops, malt, yeast, water chemistry, etc, and how everything interplays and creates certain characteristics in beer; it is broken down by ingredient and there are many handy reference areas for charts and info.

This book is an excellent resource and Randy Mosher has a lot of expertise in this subject (his book Radical Brewing is also good).

    Great reference book for homebrewing. Randy Mosher puts his own spin on homebrewing and shares his insights and memories of his own development. This book has a number of illustrations , tables and recipes. Do not try to read this book straight through. The book is long and reads like a textbook at times. Instead, look at this book like a cooking reference and try out the recipes and learn more about the techniques.

    3.5 stars. Wordy and could have been half the length. Narrative form does not explain the brewing process very well, but it does inspire to make beer. The charts showing malts, hops, and yeasts and the flavors they impart on the beer are very useful and helpful. The chapter on coming up with your own recipe is also useful.

    This is a fantastic book for the new homebrewer. While "How To Brew" and "The Joy of Homebrewing" are fantastic books that have a lot of useful information, they are a bit out-of-date. For example, neither of those books address HERMS, or pump considerations. Randy's book has a lot of great colour illustrations and tables, making it easier to understand some of the more complex ideas in brewing. Another interesting area that Randy covers is beer styles, and how to go beyond the styles. While it's This is a fantastic book for the new homebrewer.

    If I were to buy only one home-brew book, this would be it.Randy Mosher's Mastering Homebrew is as encyclopedic as it is accessible, as helpful as it's inspiring. I read this and salivate over all the great beers I hope to brew. I find MH's easy to read charts and guides most helpful. I haven't tried any of the starter recipes, but I'm sure they'll be great too. A beautiful book.
