Nov 01, 2018Solid and useful information, I can't wait to start growing some hops. What I really liked was these guys live just a few miles away, so I know this is doable with Maine's not always cooperative weather and soil. Nice list of authors to read and people to contact. Check it out.
Sep 12, 2013Really great little book with lots of helpful info. Some here have given it lower ratings because by their own admission they aren't ready for this kind of gardening and brewing adventure. Absolute newbies will probably do better with a basic brewing guide, but for anyone with a spirit of adventure this is a handy volume.
Apr 02, 2020I've read quite a few brewing books and this is one of the best.
May 22, 2017The Homebrewers Garden: How to Grow, Prepare & Use Your Own Hops, Malts & Brewing Herbs is authored by brothers Joe Fisher and Dennis Fisher. This excellent book was used to research a guide for home gardeners interested in producing hops and other beer ingredients at home. Chapter titles include Homegrown Hops, Brewing Herbs, Homegrown Grains & Homemade Malts, and Beer Recipes. Unsurprisingly, the content is much more detailed and expansive than anything home gardeners can find The Homebrewer’s Garden: How to Grow, Prepare & Use Your Own Hops, Malts & Brewing Herbs is authored by brothers Joe Fisher and Dennis Fisher. This excellent book was used to research a guide for home gardeners interested in producing hops and other beer ingredients at home. Chapter titles include “Homegrown Hops,” “Brewing Herbs,” “Homegrown Grains & Homemade Malts,” and “Beer Recipes.” Unsurprisingly, the content is much more detailed and expansive than anything home gardeners can find online. In particular, the Hop Directory (a listing of hop varieties and their properties) and the section on brewing herbs are especially useful.
May 04, 2017(Ok I didn't read all of the recipes or study every listed pest, but I did read the rest!)
Jun 26, 2017Overall I enjoyed it. It's about one-third growing hops, one-third growing other beer-related herbs, and one-third recipes. It was informative, and well done. However, the authors did enough organic food preaching to be distracting.
May 18, 2017I based my hopgrowing largely on this book. But haven't really tried more of it. Useful but not inspiring.
Jun 26, 2008Terrific little book that takes a very different approach from that of other homebrewing books. The recipes are fascinating, for beers heavily flavored by such things as Lavender, Dandelion, Anise, etc. The long discussion of hops is good, too, but it's the recipes that set your imagination going.
Jun 25, 2009I suppose the real review should come after I find out how well my hops harvest goes (so far one plant is going gangbusters and the other...um...seems dead) and how the recipes taste (I'll try the oregano pale ale in the near future), but the book was quite interesting and readable and seemed full of good information.
May 31, 2016I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Apr 30, 2012Although I had no intention of growing my own hops or grains, I really enjoyed this book. It has an excellent section on herbs and such that have been used for brewing throughout the centuries that got me immediately thinking about all kinds of funky fresh beers to cook up.
Dec 30, 2009A friend and I are going to start homebrewing in the new year. I picked this book up at the local library hoping to glean some information, but this book was not very helpful to a newbie. I expected as much, but picked it up anyway.
Dec 21, 2014Nearly half the book is advanced brewing recipes of heavily herbed brews. The other half is really great growing info on a broad range of useful plants. I was interested primarily in the hops section, which did not disappoint, and may now be interested in growing barley as well.
Jan 03, 2013I really give it 4.5 stars, it was very helpful but I think I would have liked a bit more info on growing.
Jan 15, 2013Just about everything in this book I had already found online somewhere for free. Broke no new ground for me.
Aug 18, 2008Great little book packed full of useful information on all sorts of plants and techniques. Lets grow a field of barley.
Apr 22, 2010Well written book full of idea generating information about hops, herbs, and grains.
Feb 19, 2008A succinct guide to growing your own brewing ingredients including: hops, malt, brewing herbs, as well as how to deal with pests.
Jan 29, 2014Nice format, good info. Love the detailed info on how much fresh herbs to put in various kinds of beer.
Aug 12, 2013The first part was interesting, but it's mostly just a plant dictionary which is not much use until I can actually go out and plant some things in the ground.
Nov 05, 2013A must read for any homebrew thinking about growing your own ingredients.
