Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Bad. Not In-depth. A Good First Look. I bought this book more for my interest in making Mead and Beer. Amongst other books I have already read I found this one gave an introduction to each choice but is not ideal for someone who wants to pursue and advance in either area. I did like how I was introduced into things I hadn't thought of trying yet. So I would recommend this book to anyone who is open to try everything. However if you already know what you are interest in making more in particular, then buy something else more specific.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such fun! I'm new to soda brewing, but I found the book effective and easy to follow to make some delicious fruity sodas. Brewing takes more time than squeezing juice into carbonated water, but it's worth the wait. Looking forward to trying the recipes for kombucha and milk kefir when I get the appropriate cultures. #plumreview
