Default Book Recommendations

OK, below is a list of my current library (at least as I remember it):

Complete Joy of Homebrewing
How to Brew
Classic Styles
Yeast: The Practical Guide
Homebrewers Garden
Brew Ware
Extreme Brewing <-Forgot that one

I am planning on getting "Designing Great Beers" next, but I thought I'd get some opinions on other books I might think about picking up also.

Any suggestions??

Thanks.

That's a pretty good library already. Designing Great Beers is a great book, and I still go back to it everytime I try out a new style.

I would suggest some more expensive books, but I don't think many people are as stupid as me and willing to spend several hundred dollars on a few books.

I always tend to refer back to The Brewmaster's Bible by Stephen Snyder - packed with lots of good info and recipies.

I really have enjoyed Radical Brewing, by Randy Mosher.

If you are a fan of Belgian beer, check out Brew Like a Monk and also Farmhouse Ales. Both are great books, and Brew Like a Monk has become something of a philosophical manifesto for me.


Edit:
Forgot to mention Brew Chem 101. Some of it goes over my head, but it's nice to have a technical reference for what is happening during fermentation.

3rd Edition Technology Brewing and Malting by Wolfgang Kunze
Microbiological Methods
MBAA Practical Handbook for the Specialty Brewer - This one speaks more about commercial brewing though, so it may not be of interest to you.

I got Beer Captured for Christmas and I'm enjoying it. I picked up the ingredients for a recipe in the book tonight and I'm looking forward to brewing my first IPA.

Naked Pint is a good read.
