Marty Nachel immediately dispels two long-held myths in Homebrewing for Dummies: brewing your own beer isn't all that difficult, and despite all that you may have heard or assumed, facial hair is not a prerequisite to being a good homebrewer.

Like all other books in the popular Dummies series, Homebrewing for Dummies is a clear, concise, how-to guide for the do-it-yourselfer. As it turns out, making beer isn't hard to do if you have a stove, some basic equipment, and a little time on your hands. Here's your chance to make your own Hefeweizen or India Pale Ale and avoid another trip to the local microbrewery; Nachel provides the recipes and solid step-by-step instructions. And if making beer isn't enough, the chapter on evaluation will teach even the most pedestrian beer drinker to critically analyze homebrews like a pro.

Nachel is well qualified. The former welder is an award-winning brewer and one of the top beer writers in the country. Homebrewing for Dummies covers the gamut--from simple lagers to Belgian Dubbels--and Nachel shows that you don't need a team of Clydesdales or a Colorado mountain spring to make great beer at home.
