Ever wondered whether you could make a beer just like your favourite brew from the bar? With this book the answer is – "Yes, you can!" . . . and in just under two weeks, from start to first sip! Brewing your own beer at home means not only that you get to brew to your own taste, strength and colour desires, but you can also explore and create to an almost infinite level. Brewing your own beer will be fun and it will save you money.

Many people think that home brewing is complicated and messy – but this book shows you that neither need be the case. Expert authors Mark Murphy and Jordan St. John, aided by consultants Jon Downing (who has helped set up over 100 brewpub startups) and Graham Lees (co-founder of the British real-ale campaigning organisations, CAMRA), take the reader through every stage of the brewing process, starting with which hop (or hops) to use, and concluding with instructions for bottling your finished project.

How to Brew Your Own Beer is both a detailed description of different types of beer and a fail-safe home brewer’s recipe book. With step-by-step instructions and some 200 supporting colour illustrations, the book is perfect for beer lovers of all levels – novices and home brewers who want to try a new style.


Mark Murphy was an accountant and amateur homebrewer before he took his hobby to the next level by pursuing a professional brewing education.
