Why do hops give off the flavor and aroma that they do? “Because” isn’t the answer. They vary in Alpha Acids, Beta Acids, Myrcene and a host of other oils and acids. Where they’re grown even matters. This book covers over 110 individual hops and breaks them down piece-by-piece so you’ll properly craft your next homebrew. It also offers you information on what to anticipate regarding flavor and aroma. The Writer owns a brewpub and was once repeatedly getting asked about the hops in his beer and how he got it to taste like that. After months of leafing through sales brochures, researching hop farmers, and experimenting himself, he puts all of that “hopped up” knowledge into one source – in a very easy to get admission to manner specifically for the homebrewer in all of us.
