The Homebrewer’s Garden: How to Easily Grow, Prepare, and Use Your Own Hops, Malts, Brewing Herbs

Today I thought I would do a book review on The Homebrewer’s Garden: How to Easily Grow, Prepare, and Use Your Own Hops, Malts, Brewing Herbs by Joe Fisher and Dennis Fisher.

This is a great book and the only one I know about that combines gardening and home brewing. The book contains 4 chapters.

1. Homegrown Hops

2. Brewing Herbs

3. Homegrown Grains and Homemade Malts

4. Beer Recipes: Using Homegrown Hops, Brewing Herbs and Homemade Malts

This book offers a lot of information and some interesting recipes for the home brewer even if you don’t garden. The book also has good information about grains for the non brewing gardener.

The growing hops chapter is very in depth and covers everything from starting to drying including pest and diseases. The brewing herbs chapter is nice because it covers all the information you need to know about growing the herb and how to brew with the herb including amounts to add. The  Homegrown Grains and Homemade Malts covers all the steps from growing and harvesting the grain to making it into  a malt.  I haven’t brewed any of the Recipes in the last chapter but it got me thinking about ingredients other then barley and hops.
