Default Palmers "How to Brew" as a PDF?

Does anyone have or has anyone seen a copy of How to Brew as a single document or file?

I have access to a print shop to get it as a hardcopy but it would be MUCH easier if it was all in a single contigous file.

Has anyone ever seen it publish as anything other than the Web Page ?

Thanks in advance.

I was actually thinking about the one on the web page.

I have several brewing books, Palmers included, but it would be a great resource for my friends who are just getting into brewing.

You have to admit, reading a web page in the middle of a brew session might get dicey.

Cheers,

I saved it as a Word.doc...removing a bunch of pictures and the redundent
topic/chapter headers. It came out to about 120 pages....you can PM me if you would like a copy

You may need to adjust the margins to make it a bit more printer friendly as I have not yet printed it.


Cheers.

It's money well spent and you'll be going back to it time and time again. I learn something new every time I go to the library at home.

Actually, I normally have the laptop going during every brew session. I just keep it away from everything "volatile"

I keep brew notes, calculators, and recipes in excel, and I like cruising the forum while brewing.

Reading anything in the middle of a session could get dicey. I just read a recipe and it was just the right 30 seconds that was needed for the boilover.

I'm going to play around with the formatting tomorrow and will save it as a PDF, if people want a copy.
