I think the book is perfectly fine for beginners too. The writers of the book actually own a homebrewshop. They sell pre-packaged kits for all the recipes in their books (Clone Brews and its successor Beer Captured). Check them out here

I think it's pretty handy for giving us new folks an idea on what ingredients are used in a certian style of beer. Plus, you can sample a commercial brew, then look at the recipe, and have a fair idea of what tastes like what. Not that I'm saying their recipes are perfect, but it's a neat guide.

I think theClone Brews books (I have both) are OK for novices. Each brew has an extract recipe as well as an all-grain version for advanced brewers.

Next Up: New Glarus' Wisconsin Belgian Red
North American Clone Brews , pg. 147
If you ever are in Wisconsin you have to try this or the Raspberry Tart.
I usually buy about 6 bottles when I am in Wisconsin.

No Blue Moon or Goose Island 312. Darn.

Anyone ever try the 312? That's a damn good brew. I'd like to make a clone called 847.

[EDIT] I should explain. 312 is the area code for Chicago. 847 is the A.C. for the northern burbs, where I live.[/EDIT]

I've thought about doing that too, but here ours is 757. Someone would think I'm naming it after somethign from Boeing. So I'm gonna wait til I move. :D

I wouldn't expect one for '312 Urban Wheat' from Goose - it's just too new.

The company I worked for up until a few months ago (in fact, they closed their Chicago office two weeks ago), sold Goose a bunch of ETR's (electronic temperature controls). Our outside salesman went there to help them do a 'set-up' and they gave him a couple of cases of Summertime Ale, which he shared with all of us in the office! :D

Anyhow, they let him sample some of their "new 312 wheat beer" fresh from the tanks. This was, IIRC, late-summer of 2004! It seemed to take forever to hit the streets and we were ribbing him about making the whole thing up!

I'm drinking my last 312 right now. I want more, but the store across the street doesn't sell them (yet). They do sell Goose Island Oktoberfest, which I'm enjoying now that I'm out of 312.
