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.

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!

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.
