If you have a back garden, or even a sunny porch or balcony, you can grow your own hops, brewing herbs, and malt grains to enhance the flavour, aroma, and uniqueness of your home-brewed beer -- and ensure that you have the freshest, purest, best ingredients possible. Simple instructions from experts Joe and Dennis Fisher guide you through every step of the process, from setting up your first hop trellis to planting and caring for your herbs, harvesting and drying them, malting grain, and brewing more than 25 recipes specifically designed for homegrown ingredients. This fully updated second edition includes a new section featuring colour photography of the plants, expanded information on growing hops in small spaces, innovative trellising ideas, an expanded section on malting, new profiles of prominent grower/brewers, and up-to-date information on grain-growing best practices.
For beer brewers ready to put even more "home" into their homebrewing, brothers Joe and Dennis Fisher offer advice on growing hops, grains, and herbs, plus malting instructions and recipes for more than 25 homebrews.
