Well I feel like an idiot now, I basically posted a thread asking for book suggestions.

WOOPS! I'll see if I can find some of these in your list.

:-D

I second Tasting Beer. It's not so much a book to help you brew, but it IS a very good read IMO. Mosher is a fabulous ambassador for the hobby.

Nothing wrong with designing great beer either.

I almost picked up Brewing With Wheat yesterday. I hear that's a great book.

Thanks. I'll add to my list. I've had a crazy couple of weeks and am still only 30 something pages into How to Brew. Hopefully I can pick it up soon and finish it.

I started with homebrewing for dummies by marty nachel and it really taught me to get my sea legs, I must have read it cover to cover four or five times. before I boiled my first gallon of wort, I have since graduated to some other books, breewing classic styles the complete joy and others but I really enjoyed homeebrewing for dummies and it was very straight forward and an easy guide for someone who had zero experience and noone to hold their hand the first few times, definately worth a read and I still reference it from time to time!

+1 to Beer Captured: you could brew out of that book for years and not exhaust the great recipes. A must own for any serious home brewer IMHO

How to Brew of course, Brewing classic styles is also an awesome way to explore styles, and ultimately craft your favorite recipe within any specific style from the base they give you.

Finally got my copy of "Designing Great Beers" yesterday. Had to special order it frmo Books-a-Million and that took forever!

Not much time to read any, just scanned through it and I can tell I am going to like it by the way it is laid out.

The first time I cracked my copy...I freaked out. It was extremely technical, and I was a noob. It collected dust for a few months until I started brewing all grain. Now I use it mostly when I'm brewing a new style that I haven't tackled much.
