I forgot that I preordered this book quite a while ago from the Brewingnetwork. It just came in today, and am I ever anxious to get to reading. Even got fortunate enough to get a signed copy. I am now off to the basement with a cigar and a reading light in hand. Anyone else get their copy lately?

Looks like 80 recipes and a bunch of brewing tips.

I beleive I saw a blurb in this month's BYO about that.

Once you've torn through it, a review could be stellar.

I've ordered too and haven't got mine yet. I'm hoping it will be any day now. I'm interested in seeing how different it is from the podcasts and the BYO articles he does on styles.

Anyway, I was glad to support the BN and it will be nice to have all of that information in one place.

Could you give me a brief summation of the Lambic recipe/yeast. Nothing super specific, I just want to get an idea if they've got anything revolutionary in there about sour beers. Thanks.

I just ordered it today. Doesn't look like you can get it through BN anymore, so I bought it on Amazon (clicking through the link on Basic Brewing Radio so SOMEONE doing a good podcast would get a kickback . I think it was only $14 or so, and Amazon always has free shipping when you drop $25 (and there was something else I've been meaning to buy anyway).

That's what prevented me from buying it - the stuff I wanted to add to get my free shipping "didn't count".

How 'bout "Don't do an open fermentation in an apple orchard - that's CRAZY TALK!"

I got a copy yesterday. It is a good book with a real focus on making all the recipes beginner friendly while at the same time keeping them open for all-grain. I am pleased at first glance and know the recipes are as fine as you will come by. There is also a lot of information around each recipe, things like fermentation schedules, mash temps, yeast management. The authors have a real bias for fermentation control and specific ingredients chosen with intention. If you have $15 sitting around this would be a good way to use it!
