Take your homebrewing to the next level, citizens.

Once you know the basics of brewing, you need a trusted guide to help explain the more advanced details. Which malts are right for which styles? What are the pitfalls of yeast selection? Which practices will make each brew more successful?

In this volume, Michael Dawson shows you his thought process behind 64 of his favorite all-grain homebrewing recipes. He recounts the history of beer styles, offers critical insight on ingredient selection, and suggests riffs and variations to customize each beer to your own tastes.

After brewing with Dawson, you’ll know how to treat hops for maximum effect, how to make your ale malty but not sweet, how to optimize fermentation for multiple strains of yeast, and much more.

It’s time for you to become a Mashmaker.
