I hopped onto Amazon to see what was on my wish list. I find that I keep adding things either baesd on something I read on BoingBoing.net
or just from surfing around on Amazon looking for something else. So I decided to clean out the list a little. I purchased 2 beer books to help me develope my own recipes, I also picked up a book on mead, a non-fiction book that sounded similar to The Tipping Point
which I had liked, and three fiction novels. I received the books about a week ago and I am slowly making my way through the Designing Great Beers
book. It is an interesting read. I think Radical Brewing
will be a better read. I flipped through it when it first arrived and several of the passages I skimmed through were funny to read. I think I might go clear out a few more books from my list like Zymurgy: Best Articles
or maybe Cider, Hard and Sweet
. I have been drinking Strongbow Cider recently and I really like it. It is sweet with a hint of dryness but quite good. Now I wonder if I can make my own version. I might have to wait until the fall though when the different varieties of apples are ripe. I have heard that sour or tart apples make better cider.
