I've read several brewing books over the years but if I ever recommend a book it's always How To Brew. Most of his questions are what we all ask and I can just give him answers from my own experience not that I'm a master. I told him no matter what he reads or learns from me, if he stays with it long enough he will develop his own system. I got my other army buddy from the Army started in brewing a month ago. He loves it after his first IPA kit I gifted him turned out so well. I love brewing but I also love astronomy so have to balance the funds between the two! Sometimes I shake my head thinking of all the advanced brewing equipment I could have bought instead of the astronomy equipment which gets to be a money hole like brewing! Gotta love it !You have. I have several of them and it makes life a lot more complicated than it should be. I'm not bellyaching, I wrote the previous sentence with a big smile on my face. It's a joy spreading the hobby
Don't waste your money sending them books. Why bother reading when they can just hit you up.
Just wait until your buddy starts getting a handle on things and starts hitting you up with the, "You said this, but I read on the internet..." questions. Then you've got the guy that refuses to give up goop brewing and refuses to switch to all grain that likes to point out that, "You said it would be cheaper!"
Yeah, you've created a monster. But it'll be fun!
