You could say wouldnt this be only useful for homebrewers and not the general public. But this kind of thing would be a perfect coffee table book. You only have to look at the amount of cookbooks that are bought and never used. This is the kind of book would be bought as a present, flicked through by the reciepent and then never opened again. Give it a few months and you'll be able to pick them up at charity shops for a few quid
I certainly hope so

Or it'll be like that book where Madonna got her tits out and it's now worth a load of money. ...

I'm reliably informed there are no exposed bits of madonna in DIY Dog so may not be worth much in the coming years

They'd better hope Mr Costello doesn't hear about that.

It would be funny if BD got a cease and desist notice from the Presley estate (oh, the irony )

The only thing that the founders of Brewdog are true to is making money. The fact that it has come via brewing beer is secondary.

Bit unfair, as the content of this book has been available for free for quite a while, and probably still is.

I was prepared to give BD the benefit of the doubt but the recent 'revalation' that BD have trademaked the word punk in relation to beer tells me that their first and foremost interest is money and the realease of DIY dog was purely a marketing strategy
