Default Best book for going the next step...

I've got about 8-9 brews done now, and I'm wondering what people would recommend as a next step book. I've done only two AG and will continue to PM brew for a while as it is less time consuming and the beers are getting very good, but I'd like to go the next step into glorious brewing. I'm going to get into lagering soon, too, as soon as I build the closet.
Thanks all

Not sure what books you already have, but Ray Daniels "Designing Great Beers" is a good one.

New Lager Brewing by Noonan is great, especially if you are going to start brewing lagers.
It's REALLY deep.

I would recommend this as well, I have read it over at the Borders a couple times .
I plan to buy it next time I am there.

And this: http://www.thebrewingnetwork.com/sto...8367b3a071e0a4
I will probably buy this too.

get "clone brews" and "beer captured"...they're recipes aren't spot-on clones, but they make for some great beer and help you really figure out how your ingredients work in the brew. plus, every recipe has extract, PM, and all-grain instructions

I have almost worn the cover off of my copy of The BrewMasters Bible.

I've got a copy of Scotch Ale, if any of the others in this series are anywhere near this good, I'll grab them all. Great reading.

It's good for any ale style that uses decoctions as well. I don't do lagers, but it's useful for doing hefeweizens and understanding the process.
