Brew It Yourself
Make your own beer, wine, cider and other concoctions
The Two Thirsty Gardeners are leading a home-brewing revolution. Determined to put the fizz back into the fervour for home brewing, Richard Hood and Nick Moyle prove that creating your own tasty alcoholic drinks doesn’t need to be complicated, doesn’t need to be costly and doesn’t need to be time-consuming. From Dandelion Beer and Porter to Rhubarb Wine and Cider, the 70 recipes in Brew It Yourself will take home brewing to new heights. The craft drinks market is undergoing a huge resurgence, and while other cookbooks might stick to the tried and true tome, the authors have other ideas. Taking their two great loves—alcohol and gardening—these two thirsty gardeners provide recipe inspiration for people to turn a surplus harvest, a weed-infested yard or a visit to a supermarket or a pick-your-own farm into a fantastic drink. Covering wines, beers and ciders, as well as more fancy infused liquors, sparkling drinks and some true curios, the book outlines the basic approaches to each drink’s method of production, debunking myths, celebrating experimentation and taking the fear out of the science of fermentation. There really is no reason not to brew it yourself.
