"As a brewer for over 50 years in both Europe and America, including many as a homebrewer, I can appreciate the challenges of brewing quality beer that I am proud to share with my friends. Al Korzonas has provided an excellent guide to the homebrewing enthusiast. The beginner, novice or even expert now has a great asset to help improve thier skills. Homebrewing - Volume I provides a comprehensive look at the brewing process. Everything from equipment to ingredients to process are included in this must-have tool for the homebrewer."

"Al Korzonas has become well-known in recent years for his extensive participation in electronic forums such as The Homebrew Digest. He has patiently fielded questions from beginning brewers and has been widely praised for his assistance. This experience has given him a particular sensitivity to the needs of elementary and intermediate brewers, and to issues other authors often take for granted. All of this is well-captured in this book and those who are looking for a well-written introduction can do no better than this one."
