Has anyone ever ready this book by Ray Daniels: The Brewers Association Guide to starting your own brewery? http://www.amazon.com/Brewers-Associ...2073045&sr=8-1
I got it as a gift this Christmas. Its a collection of articles from BA trade magazine. Some interesting stuff and some stuff that only applies to commercial breweries, for example floor design, writing a business plan, etc. As someone who has day dreams about opening a nano brewery it was an interesting read. It does give you some insight into what it takes to make it in the industry.

I really enjoyed brewing better beer. I've read through the book twice now and like Gordon's philosophy on brewing

I just read this book and thought it was pretty good. Although it is not super technical ,l it is full of useful information and good insight into one home brewer's award winning processes. The book is very easy to read as well as entertaining. I don't consider myself very advanced for an all grain brewer and maybe that is why I got more out of it.
