    Hi there.

    Are there any instruction/recipe books that people would recommend, specifically for small batch brewing (1 gallon/5(ish) litre. Thanks.

    My kid got me the Brooklyn Brew Shop's beer making book.

    There are 52 small batch recipes that run from simple cream ales to fancy herb and fruit brews. There's a few cool ideas and interesting stories like the brew that uses raisins for the priming sugar. The other good feature is that most all of the recipes have a 5 gallon parts list to them as well. If you buy this one make sure to read the first chapter where the writers define their directions like yeast types and methods.

    Honestly, my first intro book was the Brewer's Best Brewing Guide that came with my first equipment kit. It's only 40 or so pages and is just enough to give you an intro into the hobby.
