Default Great Books

I have read both the complete joy of home brewing and how to brew and was just wondering if anyone knew of any other good books that are a little more than introduction books. They were both very good and very informative but what would be the next step?

If you're ready to move on and formulate you own recpies you *HAVE* to get this book. Designing Great Beers: The Ultimate Guide to Brewing Classic Beer Styles by Ray Daniels.
Has tons of info on and the characteristics of each style, as well as the history. All the "style" chapters end in bullet point summaries of the ingerdiantes and methods for those styles.
Also the history of every style is a fascinating read, if you a beer geek . Really, get this book and you won't be sorry.

Dis-

'New Brewing Lager Beer' by Greg Noonan. Full of good info about general brewing as well as lager and DECOCTION (love that word). It does get a little heavy at times, tho. Also many of the AOB 'Classic Beer Stlyes' series are worthwhile.

Check out the review section of his forum - there are several books/reviews that I found to be helpful.


Cheers.

Grab BYO's "150 Classic Clone Recipes" issue. Its $5, and really nice if you want to have an idea for how some familiar beers might be forumlated.

Read this one twice already. If you love theory, then this is a great book

I just finished 'Radical Brewing' by Randy Mosher and I highly recommend it. I think it's perfect as an intermediate book and is highly entertaining and informative. There's no doubt in my mind that it will become one of the 'classics' of homebrewing literature, and Mosher certainly deserves to be mentioned with the likes of Palmer, Papazian and Noonan.

I just hit the local Library and ordered all the books I could on home brewing.. Cheap and you can figure out which one's you want to buy after you have read them. They had 24 books to choose from, all the ones that were posted here in the thread.. I have been reading my B@##s off....

Dave Miller's Homebrewing Guide: Everything You Need to Know to Make Great-Tasting Beer was very informative I thought.
