I've done several of the recipes in this book (or based a brew on one) and they are excellent.

I concur, i tweaked the 60 minute IPA to my preferred abv and ibu and made a belter of a brew.

Planning the EKG Smash, the black IPA and the milk stout in my forthcoming brews.

I find all the Dorling Kinderly food related books very good indeed. Their preserves one is amazing. I got the brewing one for 4 quid at The Works

I bought this book having got back into all grain after a long break and I fancied trying something other than British Ale styles, all my other books are by Grahame Wheeler, great books also which got me started in all grain brewing.
I am currently brewing the Oatmeal stout and traditional Bock from this book which are looking very promising indeed. The book is easy to follow and a great read with photo's to make your mouth water.

Still use this book a great deal. As with many on this forum I buy my ingredients from the Malt Miller. I noticed recently that a great many of Greg's recipes from this book have been set up by users of that site to get the right quantities with a minimum of fuss (and cost and leftover half bags of grain!). Of course you have to double check them as maybe someone has omitted an ingredient that they already have a sack of, or even typos etc., but good nevertheless.

Anyway, I am surprised that only one or two are available as kits on the BrewUK site (owned by Greg), he's missing a trick here. If I owned that site and had written that book (and sold so many copies), I'd have a whole portion of the website set up to easily locate and order the ingredients for every recipe, maybe with a choice of yeasts (none also being an option).

Brewed Summer Ale recipe on 6th June. As per the recipe but with my own re-harvested WLP001 culture.

Kegged and all disappeared in under 2 hrs at a party on 15th July. Very quaffable beer, sessionable strength, wonderful colour, did what it said on the tin!

started brewing a year ago and done about 11 brews - most from this book. working my way through it. cascade Pale ale was a winner.

had the 60 min bottled a couple of weeks ago. ended up with FG 1004 instead of 1014. first tasting is a distinctly over bitter. hopefully not a yeast infection :|
