I'm just getting back into homebrewing after a 10+ year hiatus after my wife bought me a new starter kit for my birthday. I dug up several old books I had in storage and thought I'd share one of my favorite passages. The book is called "Handcrafted Brewing - A guide for All home brewers!" by Stan Richards, RFC - Copyright 1992.
The following jewels are taken verbatim from just pages 72~73 of the book:
"Stiring constantly to advoed brening."
"(This level is not recomended for begeners.) Perform your mashing prosses, and sparge the grains properley. Cook the sweet wort to with the hops for the recomended time. At hot brack remove from heat and chill wort to cold brack."
"Be carfull not to splash the scalding liquied on your self"
"Do not scweez the grains out."
"If thair is no gas bing pasted thru the air lock check for a leak."
"Most fermentations will start off slow. Ferment lick crazie for a fuw days, and slow down dermaticly well befor bottling. Fermentation can suppres even the pro's some times. Make suer that you use a beer hydrometer and dont geass."
So what do you think? Do these time honored traditions of the early 90's still hold true? Me thinks I need a new book... heh.
