    The Secrets of Master Brewers: Techniques, Traditions and Homebrew Recipes for 26 of the World's Classic Beer Styles

    Whew - That's a mouthful but what a cool book! It has just enough "history" that I don't get board reading it and a bunch of cool techniques and recipes for each style.
    The techniques and recipes are created from and by some of the major and even minor breweries in the field of that style! A lot of American Craft Brewery mentions as well! Like Urban Chestnut from MIssiouri is in there! - I love that brewery!
    Other brewies that give advice in the book are:
    Ommegang
    Pilsner Urquell
    Schneider & Sohn
    Upright Brewing
    Fuller's
    Mighty Oak
    Double Mountain
    FullSteam
    Saint Germain

    The book is by Jeff Alsworth

    So pretty much restricted to my kindle

    Is that a brewing book? :)

    I'm working my way through my library - currently "Mastering Homebrew".

    I'm seeing that. I am not intending to make one, but reading for information and learning.
    yes, they have their own yeasts, handed down through generations.. many are pure, and are the same family Sach. Cerv. as we typically use... but a different pure strain. Looks like they are fairly protected, kept in secret.... as the book mentions that they don't like to speak much about their yeasts and where they came from other than a family strain.
    edit.. also forgot to mention... Diacytel is an attribute to their beers, not a fault.
