    This is a brilliant book that's filled with great recipes and historical brewing information. You do need to know how to brew all-grain batches of beer as this is not designed to be a "how to brew" book, but the information and recipes are invaluable for anyone who wants to learn about and brew historical styles. Most of the recipes are for English/UK breweries, but there are also some Continental and US recipes. Although the recipes are designed for 5 gallon homebrew batches, the grain bills are broken down by percentage, and there's complete OG, FG, ABV and IBU that pro brewers can use to ramp the recipes up to production-sized batches on their systems. If you are an intermediate or advanced homebrewer, or a pro brewer, this is terrific book that will give you great insight into brewing historical recipes. Highly recommended.

    This book is a collection of beer recipes pulled out of historical records. There is the recipe to make invert sugar of different colors and a description of various decoction methods for brewing lagers. The author is straightforward that he made educated guess to fill in the blanks of historical records since vital pieces of information are often missing. One good example given by the author is hop additions. Another is yeast, I guess Wyeast and White labs were not arround way back then... You will need more than basic brewing knowledge to brew these recipes. Since these are all-grain, you will need to adjust them to your brewing system and fill in a lot of blanks. I would have appreciated some information regarding water profile for brewing those recipes. Perhaps, there is on the author's blog at Just to salute all the effort that went in the research of this book, you got to buy it.
