About the author

Dave Law has been at the forefront of the fight against tasteless, mass-produced beer; refusing to bow down to the bland and insisting on only serving beers produced by the finest microbreweries at his two London pubs. His passion for a well-made beer knows no bounds and shows in his own exquisite brews. The author is based in London, UK.

Following the explosion of interest in properly brewed beer, "The Pocket Homebrew Handbook" is here to provide the knowledge to allow beer enthusiasts to make their own. Packed with 75 recipes for everything from stouts and porters to IPAs and wheat beers, you will learn how easy it is to brew your own beers bursting with taste. So whether you like a hoppy, crisp finish or a biscuity, malty taste you are certain to find the right beer for you. A comprehensive introduction provides all the information needed to get started, explaining the key ingredients and how they work together, plus the equipment you'll need. Soon you will understand the intricacies of full-mash brewing and be well on your way to making beers you can be proud of. The aim is to encourage you to experiment, not reproduce beers you have enjoyed in the past—by mastering the basic types of beer, you can go on to produce your own. It's how the best microbreweries started, why not follow their lead?
