The author of two books bringing old Australian beer recipes back to life is embarking on another. Peter Symons is keen to fill the gaps in the country's brewing past and is after your help in doing so.
Brew A Batch is one of two quality beer books released in Australia in the lead up to Father's Day. It's a beginner's guide to homebrewing by Batch co-founder Chris Sidwa that delves into the brewer's ethos too. Judd Owen joined him to find out more.
Local beer lovers are in for a treat in the coming weeks as two new books are released in the lead up to Father's Day. One of them comes from Luke Robertson, founder of the Ale Of A Time blog and podcast, beer writer, host and more.
Early in 2016, Peter Symons published Bronzed Brews, a collection of 42 recipes for long lost Australian beers that homebrewers could bring back to life. He enjoyed it so much, he's already produced a second book.
There's little left for brewers to put into beer. Locally, we've seen squid ink, belly button fluff and whale vomit used, while elsewhere there's been much more besides, as showcased in the new Brewed With Balls book.
The Crafty Pint's founder has written his second beer book. The Great Australian Beer Guide is out across the country from today. It's a colourful snapshot of the local beer scene told through 150 beers and breweries.
After researching the Australian Sparkling Pale Ale style for America's Brewing Network, Peter Symons began to delve further into historical Australian beer. The result is Bronzed Brews, a book blending history with 42 home brew recipes for historical beers.
