A word of warning to anyone thinking of ordering DAve Miller's
new book sight unseen. "Brewing the World's Great Beers" should really
be called, "An Introductory Guide to Brewing the World's Great
Beer STYLES". The book does NOT replace Line's book. It does not
give recipes attempting to replicate any particular brand of beer,
but gives extract, partial, and full-grain recipes for most of the
styles of beer. Anyone reading Zymurgy or the Cats Meow would have
seen similar recipes before. The one interesting thing is seeing
the supposedly same recipe presented in each of the techniques of
brewing. Miller gives the simple steps of each technique without
much explanation and even advocates sucking on the siphon hose!
