    Ha! If I had *every* brewing book I coveted I'd have no room for brewing :)

    Nice collection. I have Brewing Classic Styles and Mastering Homebrew of which neither is on you shelf and I think both are excellent, in different ways. For me, Randy Mosher isn’t the most readable, I find it a bit rambling at times, but it’s like I can sense his enthusiasm as I read and this is probably why he seems to ramble!

    Hi!
    Think I'll give this one a miss - one of the reviewers says that it's only suitable for all gran brewers. :laugh8:

    There's a lot of crossovers in our libraries. What I would recommend that isn't there is Yeast by Chris White and Jamil Zainasheff. I probably only ended up reading half the book as there is a lot of biology and chemistry in there I don't care about, but I learnt so much which greatly improved my brewing.

    Yep, that one's recently been added (somewhere on the right hand side in the pic in my previous post). Not had much more than a browse through yet, but looks a useful resource!

    i have the one on Hop, from Stan Hieronimus from the top of my head. Hop and Yeast would be my most consulted books form that series.
