A collection of proven recipes from the combined expertise from two legendary homebrewers, for all who make beer at home. In the history of the AHA National Homebrew Competition, few brewers have succeeded like Jamil Zainasheff. From his first gold medal in 2002 through his second Ninkasi ward in 2007, Jamil has accumulated a trophy case full of medals -- all with the recipes contained in this book.
In Brewing Classic Styles, award-winning recipes are shared to help other brewers enjoy the top-quality beers that the homebrewing hobby offers today. The 27 chapters cover the standard competition categories published by the Beer Judge Certification Program, giving one recipe for each of more than 80 different style subcategories. To kick the book off, homebrewing expert John J. Palmer gives insight into beer ingredients and their selection along with tips on brewing and recipe adjustments.
