Benefits Of An American Homebrewer’s Association Membership: Books

Besides becoming a part of a larger organization that fights for your rights to brew beer at home, joining the American Homebrewer’s Association comes with a plethora of perks. Besides a monthly magazine chock full of useful information, recipes, and suppliers, the organization publishes an amazing swath of printed books.

Most recently, I was able to pick up American Sour Beers, Innovative Techniques for Mixed Fermentations by Michael Tonsmeire for only $12 from the AHA store. This almost 500 page book spans the field of brewing with bacteria, and will provide a solid resource for my own experimentation with brewing sour beers.
