We’ve had great fun experimenting with the drinks in this book and, for the most part, they’ve worked well (the only one that didn’t work for us
is the nettle beer, but perhaps that shouldn’t be a surprise – nettles really don’t sound like they should be in beer).
Booze: River Cottage Handbook No.12, by John Wright, is a great source of inspiration and, after a quick browse, we’re always brimming with ideas for our next brew – some of them are recipes from this book, while others are adaptions that we want to try.
Verdict: 10 out of 10
The book we wish we had when we started brewing.
