Charlie Papazian's "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" is a great book to read through several times before brewing, and have on hand for reference for the future.

Let me be the first to say :

How To Brew by John Palmer.

Designing Great Beers by Ray Daniels

My personal go-to library as I am still learning.

Well I've already started brewing, but I do wanna gain some knowledge. I have heard several references on this site to Palmer's and Papazian's books. Are these available at Books a Million or Barnes and Noble?

I have noticed a lot of quotes from How To Brew and references to John Palmer. He seems to be a very well respected source. I do intend to check it out! Thanks!
