Default Best Brewing books

I am looking for some good reading material that explains the all grain process. I have brewed extract batches with specialty grains just never all grain. Appreciate your recommendations.

I would start with Palmer's "How to Brew". It's the best and most up-to-date general purpose homebrewing book available. For more in depth beer nerdiness I like Noonan's "Brewing Lager Beer". Don't let the title fool you, much of the information can be applied to ales.

+1 How to Brew

I read several others but use How to Brew as a reference when I forget something.

+1 to what BigEd said. Best two books for learning AG brewing (beginner and advanced).

Charlie Papazian's Complete Joy Of Homebrewing is classic. A little dated in some respects, but it is the book that changed everything.

Designing great beers and how to brew would be the two essentials that will give you the basic fundamentals and couldn't be recommended higher.

If you wanted an easy to follow recipe book with great recipes to add to it the Jamil and Palmer 'brewing classic styles is a good addition.
