4/19/2008 -- I am looking for a good book to help answer some of the questions I have related to getting into all grain brewing. I have not yet acquired any equipment and was hoping I would find a book that would guide me into getting the "best" equipment necessary. There are a few titles I found on Chapters and Amazon, but wanted to check with you guys . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: We like "How to Brew" by Palmer, or The New Complete Joy of Homebrewing" by Papazian
2/1/2008 -- What would be the best all around book to by for brewing beer and whiskey and others. And thanks for answering all of my other questions. Have a nice day.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: There a lots of good books on brewing, but I am not aware of ONE that covers beer brewing, distilling (whiskey and other spirits), and all the other possibilities, like wine making. There are specialized books for each, however.For brewing beer, we like The Complete Joy of Homebrewing. It's a classic, with lots of good information including . . .

8/2/2006 -- All of the recipies in this book call for concentrated boils. In opposition to my local brew shop,I like the full boil.Can I follow these recipes and just add more water or is there something I should do to compensate?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I do too (like full boils). You make better beer that way. Lots of OLD recipes call for concentrated boils because they just didn't know any better.Yes, for the most part, you can just add more water. You may reduce the hops just slightly to compensate. You get better hop utilization with a full boil. Another good reason to do it.
2/2/2006 -- Is there any book recommended for intermediate extract brewers who want to switch to all-grain brewing? I am having difficulties finding any resources and my local brewshop recently closed.
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I would say this one (Complete Joy) is very good, also "How to Brew" by J. Palmer. Here is a link to "How to Brew":http://www.nexternal.com/hombre/Product451
