Extreme Brewing is a must-have book
for aspiring home brewers who are interested in making their own
specialty beers at home. There is no in-depth science to

with variations for partial-grain brewing.
Extreme Brewing is rooted in the brewing tradition of
Belgium with a unique emphasis on hybrid styles that incorporate
fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices to create unique flavor
combinations. Not only will you learn to make delicious beer, you

bottle selection and labeling. You'll be taught the basics of
brewing ingredients and processes-so you'll be equipped to start
with the basic knowledge you'll need.
There is an overview of the many general beer styles from ales to
stouts and porters. This book contains tips on how to use all your
senses to become a confident beer taster. Detailed information on
food pairings for beer and cheese and even chocolate and fun ideas
for themed dinners will allow readers to share their creations with
family and friends.
