Default The REAL Bible?

So, the bible, which is it? I always though when people referred to "The Bible" they meant "How to brew" by John Palmer, but I now see some referring to "Home Brew Beer" by Greg hughes.

So which is your bible?

Didn't Jesus turn water into wine though so surely the bible has to be the ultimate brewers bible, I mean the man's surely got talent

Mine is from God (what's the song that's just came to mind? I am the one and only!)
I have two Bibles,one is from Greg Hughes and the other is God breathed.
I just need to remember and lift the right one on a Sunday 😉

I think a lot of people like greg huges beacuse its easy straight forward and gives a solid recipe for pretty much every style.. even if you use this as a template its something for you to get started on any style..

Never heard of the geezer but I bet it's safe to assume the reader needs degrees in in chemistry and maths and applied physics and refracted chromatology and.... Christ we make ale not some super-coolant for errant nuclear reactors.
