Default Books for the beginner

John Palmer's' "How to Brew" is available online and so far has been very good.
But then again as a pure beginner what the hell do I know

Someone recommended this "Charlie Papazian's The New Complete Joy of Home Brewing"

Any comments?


Tommy

yeah thats a good one. so is Dave Millers, 'Homebrewing Guide', i prefer this one, it was my first book, and i still use it 7 years later. (i actually only got around to buying Charlie Paps books last year)

also pick up a few issues of 'Zymurgy' magazine and 'brew your own' they got 'em at waldens, barnes and nobles etc...

heres a link to every book about beer youd ever want (and some youd NEVER want)

I second that. I don't know, but I think he still brings about brewing as simple as it gets. I'm biased though as I started with him. Don't get me wrong, I really like the Palmer book, but as far as the simplest book I have seen it would still be "The New Complete Joy of Home Brewing".

While bouncing around I found his first edition (any of the older folks have this edition?). I actaully started brewing at the publishing of his second in 1991. There are certainly more books today that would be considered easy books to get into the hobby.

This was published in 1984 though.... can't help but to wonder how many of his books are floating around.... thats a good 22 years
