If you are going to read How To Brew be careful of the online version. It is outdated and has some bad information that makes brewing sound more difficult than it really is. Make sure you get an updated version to read.

Don't worry, you'll want to make notes in the margins! And if you slop some wort on your kindle.....

+1 for Charlie, then Palmer. I think it's also worth owning Brewing Classic Styles -- Once you get a feel for the process of brewing, it's helpful to look at some really good recipes and see how beers are put together. This is one of the real strengths for Joy of Homebrewing as well.

Also, there's a ton of good knowledge on places such as this, Brewing Network, Brewing TV. Not books, but immensely helpful.

How to Brew is a great intro book, with some opportunity to wade into deeper waters. What amazes me is that he could write that book and not follow it up. Oh, sure, there's his "co-authoring" "Brewing Classic Styles", but that's really Jamil's book with John's support. I'd really like to see Palmer sink his teeth into another book, because, as I said, his first is a GREAT book.

Question: will he be a one-hit wonder?

I think he's working on a book about water chemistry. Seriously.

Now that you mention it, I recall reading that! Chalk it up to age...

I have both, started with Charlie's book. Palmer's is much better. Like others I go back to it frequently to answer questions I may have.

The one source that has probably helped me out the most is the Brew Strong mp3/podcasts. They can be found on the brewingnetwork.com

Good luck

Chris

Palmer's book on water is coming out in 2013. He mentioned it on a recent episode of Brewstrong.
