Praise For Home Brew Recipe Bible: An Incredible Array of 101 Craft Beer Recipes, From Classic Styles to Experimental Wilds

“Here’s a ‘how-to’ homebrew book within a homebrew recipe book. I found myself reading recipes for styles I rarely brew just to find Chris’s well-expressed brewing tips. Great recipes as promised but there’s so much more.” —Mike “Tasty” McDole, Brewing Network

“In Home Brew Recipe Bible, Chris isn’t trying to reinvent the homebrew wheel, but he does put a great new spin on it. And I’m not sure which is more robust, the book’s presentation or Colby’s House Porter!” —Marty Nachel, author of Homebrewing for Dummies and Beer for Dummies

“Not only is this book packed with great recipes, but also every one gives you a chance to understand more about homebrewing. You learn something and end up with a great-tasting beer to boot!” —Denny Conn, coauthor of Experimental Brewing and Homebrew All-Stars
