The first book to provide instructions to allow you to brew beers at home that mimic the style and flavour of named commercial beers
2 in stock.
First published in the mid 1970s, Dave Line's classic book contains over 100 recipes based on commercial brews of the time, and full instructions as to how (and why) the various processes of All Grain Brewing are undertaken. Whilst some of his techniques and ingredients are slightly dated, having been replaced by modern equipment and ingredients that weren't available to him, this book remains a firm favourite with both novice and experienced "craft brewers"
Most styles of beers are included including lager, real ales, milds, brown ales and stouts. Recipes are provided to allow you to brew "clone beers" to closely match such favourites as Old Peculier, Stella, San Miguel, Wadworth 6X, Ruddles County, Abbot Ale, Courage Directors and Guinness.
It should be borne in mind that these recipes attempt to replicate the flavour of the beers as they were made in the 1970s when Dave Line was drinking them. Due to commercial pressures, brewery buy-outs and technological techniques, they may no longer be strictly accurate to the taste of these beers today. All of the recipes can be adjusted using Graham Wheeler's "Beer Engine" software, to take account of the wider availability of modern grains and hop strains that simply weren't available in the 1970s.
