I just got an email back from Brewers Publications saying that they are working on bring back the Lambic book as an eBook and maybe potentially reprint it. I've been wanting to read this but haven't been willing to pay the $255.00 from amazon. Thought I'd share this for any Lambic brewers that are searching for this book too.

Good to know because I wanted that book but never actually tried to buy it, and at $250 that wasn't going to happen.

Wow, $255. That's got to be a mistake.

I have the book. I paid $3.98 for it. It is an interesting read, but you have to question how much the author really knows about Lambic when the recipe for Gueuze-Lambic calls for a 3 week fermentation, 1 week conditioning and then bottle. I think all the recipes have the beer in the bottle in less than 2 months.

In that case nevermind......Sounds like something I don't need to read if the recipes are so far off time wise for realistic lambics.

I'm sure he'll sell it to you at a reasonable price - say, $225?

Hey, if he didn't like it, it's worth a shot. besides i'm sure those prices come down once it's being printed again. it would be nice to get this on the kindle though.

i found a mint copy lying in the casual reading/board games area of the rogue pub in SF about six months back. I amazed myself by not pocketing it and immediately walking out of that joint. came back a week later to look something up - seemed as though someone else didn't have the same willpower. i would definitely buy it for $15 if it was republished though.
