Default Good Books? Want to Raise my Education Level

Hey looking for some good books on brewing. Want to raise my understanding of brewing. Any suggestions? Looking to learn more about the brewing process and techniques and why things are done certain ways, different types of ingredients and why some work better together than other and then also just general brewing knowledge. Thanks for the help

Brewing Classic Styles is more of a recipe book than a "how to", but still worth having. Good recipes to get you in the right direction.

If you're a sucker for IPAs like me, then Mitch Steeles new book IPA is a must.

Brewing Classic Styles is more of a recipe book than a "how to", but still worth having. Good recipes to get you in the right direction.

What he said. Another one I would add is "Tasting Beer". Very helpful in learning how to describe what you are tasting.

If you don't either of these, you need to now. Brewing Classic Styles isn't going to teach you how to brew but it is going to provide you with good solid recipes that when brewed well are winners. The Kolsch recipe is my favorite.

How to Brew by Palmer
Brewing Classic Styles by Jamil and Palmer
Brewmasters Bible by Snyder

These three are what I have and were a great place to start. How to Brew covers EVERYTHING that a beginner needs to know, especially when/if u decide to go to AG. I've also purchased a book on clone brews and im now starting to look into books on Yeast as well as Palmers upcoming book on water for brewing.

And currently on my wishlist on amazon are...

Brewing up a Business and Extreme Brewing, both by Sam Calagione from Dogfish Head
Radical Brewing and Tasting Beer, both by Randy Mosher
As far as tasting, anything by Michael Jackson (The beer guy not the singer) is great.
