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: 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 . . .

9/3/2006 – Grain only brewing - I'm making a mash. Do I drain the wort as I sparge or what? Do I coook the mash then drain? I cant seem to find a step-by-step process for this
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Normally you drain the wort at the same time as you sparge it. Keeping about an inch or so sparge water on top of the grains during the process. A good reference is this book:
4/30/2006 – what is the best book for learning and perfecting all grain mashing?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: I think it's this one, "How to Brew" by Palmer.
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"
12/4/2005 – please tell me what i need from step 1 to last step in making beer
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Many books have been written on this subject. I can't possibly give you a complete answer here. We recommend:The New Complete Joy of HomebrewingHow to Brewand if you want a good introductory video, here is ours:Getting Started Home Brewing
5/8/2005 – What books go into the scientific reason for each process in depth? I am looking for more of a background in how the sugars in each different type of mash is extracted and the science behind it? I got Moonshine made simple and found it lacking in the indepth science of it all. I have a biochemistry back ground and am looking for more of a . . .
Response From Homebrew Heaven: The "The Compleat Distiller" is the book you are after as far as the distillation process. It is also pretty good as far as utilizing the various sugars.For the sugar extraction process from grains, a good brewing text like "How to Brew" by Palmer is very good. Although more of a beer brewing book, it covers the enzymes and reactions related . . .
2/1/2005 – Where can I buy the hops to brew the beer? I live in Plainview, Texas....would love to brew my own. But, I need the ingredients to brew it. will buy your equipment, so....where can I buy the goodies to brew it?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: Right here! We have a large selection of hops, yeasts, grains and everything you need in the way of ingredients. Here is a link:A good way to get started is to choose one of our ingredient (recipe) kits. They get you started the right way!
8/6/2004 – Let's assume I need the "Beermaking for Idiots" book that will fill me on the tools, the stuff and the fluff needed to make really good home brew. Also assume I have never done this before and have a wife who does not want me to blow anything up. What book do you recommend?
Response From Homebrew Heaven: That's an easy one...We would recommend the New Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Papazian. We include it in each of our equipment kits, but it can be purchased separately.Another new one that is very good is "How to Brew" by Palmer.
