Part of me wishes I was in your situation where I could learn all that all over again. Especially BLAM. I'd say hands down that's the best book there.

I still haven't managed to complete Designing Great Beers. Got really stuck on it

Start with Brew Like A Monk, it is a good read.

DGB was my first brewing book, I'm quite proud of my self that I managed to work my way through all the hop and malt equations for recipe formulations being rubbish at maths.
Then I discovered brewing software and I can't remember any of it now.
But I still use it for reference.
Great book.
FERMENTING: Melon ale, The big yin Belgian strong dark ale.
CONDITIONING: Proctractonator Dopplebock
BOTTLES: Leffe LA, Strawberry saizon, Raspberry saizon, Hop ninja American IPA, Pilsner Farquar, Hefe Mutter Pils, Super 8 old ale, Wet hopped IPA.
Barrel 1 T,N,T American pale
Barrel 2 Vortex dark mild
Barrel 3

Taken the advice and started on Brew Like a Monk (BLAM), very interesting reading so far.
