Homebrewing is a hobby that over 1.2 million Americans enjoy and that number is growing every year. Our digital library collection is composed mainly of recipes, gathered from multiple sources—personal recipes, websites, etc.—as well as a few tidbits of information on topics related to homebrewing. Although none of the creators of this collection of recipes are master brewers, we have gathered recipes that interest us personally and that we hope will be useful and enjoyable to our guests.
We have divided our collection of beer recipes into three categories based on style: lagers, ales, and hybrids. The basic difference between lagers and ales comes from the fermentation process with lagers being brewed with bottom-fermenting yeast and ales with top-fermenting yeast. Within these two styles are many different types of beer and we have chosen to follow the categorization pattern found at BeerAdvocate.com, although there are many other ways to categorize beer styles.
