    One thought on “Wood & Beer: A Brewer's Guide”

    1. This book is very dense and is more geared to the microbrewer that is starting to venture into using barrels. There’s a whole section on repairing a barrel that as a homebrewer you aren’t likely going to need. The relevant parts of the book for home use are the flavor profiles and the appendix. The idea of blending could be fun as is the other wood uses. The use of woods other than oak seems really interesting but finding sources might be difficult.Overall a great book if you want to know hi [...]

    2. By no means is this light reading, yet it is an exceptional book about the interplay between wood and beer and the history and maintenance of barrels and foeders.

    3. Book 2 of the new year was a little bland and maybe too technical. But definitely gave me a new appreciation for coopers and the art of the barrel

    4. Limited subject matter, but a necessary reference for anyone trying to move to the next level in brewing. I'm going to have to add it to my library. I wish they had spent more time identifying the specific flavors associated with the specific chemicals provided by contact with wood.
