Ce bouquin est du même "cru" que "Yeast" : lire et relire ce livre fait évoluer les connaissances et les nouvelles formules . Ce sera 6 étoiles quand il sera édité en français.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 As a home brewer I didn't get that much out of the book 12 février 2013
Par B. Einhorn - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The book is well written and well researched. There is some interesting material on historical hops growing and research. But as a home brewer looking to improve my beer making I didn't get that much out of the book. A lot of the material I've read elsewhere. Maybe that's the problem, I've read a lot, so there wasn't that much new material here that is useful to a brewer - though there is some. Not a bad book, just not what I was looking for.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent, but a bit dry 15 mai 2013

Like many of the other reviewers/ brewers, I bought this because I really enjoyed the YEAST book by Brewing Elements Series. I agree with one of the other reviewers that also gave it three stars, so I probably don't need to re-hash that review since it was well written.

A few reasons why I couldn't pour over in the review: My main complaint is that I also found the material to be lacking in practical brewing information (compared to the yeast book which has all kinds of hands-on yeast lab set-up and technique, yeast handling and storage on a nano and macro level, temperature and oxygenation test results and graphs, etc...). The HOPS book is very well researched, but except for the clone recipes near the end of the book and the hop reference guide in the middle section, I just didn't find it useful in my day to day brewing.

The first half of the book is basically the history of hops, who grew them, and the genetic lineage of the different strains of hop plants (Cascade, Chinook, etc). Personally, I thought that while the writing is conversational, it jumps around a lot. It's hard to specify without referencing multiple paragraphs and pages, but after a while I felt like all I was reading was "Japan...1952...Germany....USDA.....1910......Illinois...... Oregon State... ...1988.....1985.....Chinook.....1966....Sierra Nevada. ....2004.......1955.....1970).

You should already know that everyone tastes and smells and likes different beers/ hops for whatever reasons (environmental, genetic, conditioning, seasonal). I feel like this book really just re-emphasises that nobody can really put their finger on (or at least come to a consensus on) what exactly certain hops smell like, how exactly to get any particular flavor into your beer, or why exactly it happens. I feel like I kept reading (which I already know), that you just have to experiment with bases, hops, yeasts, timing of hop additions, and amounts to find the flavors you like. I'm paraphrasing of course, and I'm well aware that this is what makes brewing such an wonderful and exciting art form.

I just expected a little more practical information from this book that I could immediately apply. It's my fault that the history of the hops was less interesting to me. Still, I'm glad I read it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 History Book, NOT a Practical Guide 3 août 2013
Par TopHatJesse - Publié sur
If you're into Stan Hieronymus' style of journalistic, interview based writing, than this book may not be as disappointing to you. I also picked this book up as I finished "Yeast" in the same series, with hopes of gaining the same type of practical information on hops as I did on yeast. Just as he did in "Brew Like a Monk," the author interviews tons of people and tries to express his point with short quotes or stories from the interviewee. It has tons of informational history on hops. But it seriously lacks any practical, hands on information on actual brewing (especially the home brewer).

Take the chapter "Dry Hopping" as an example. In this chapter, the author talks about tons of machines that various breweries use to dry hop their beers. Being a lowly home brewer, I was hoping for a simple one or two pages about dry hopping in a carboy, maybe with different tips, tricks, or techniques.

You could also make the same argument for the chapter called "Growing Hops." Tons of interviews of hop growers telling anecdotal stories. Information for a home cultivator (which I am) in this chapter is non existent. I got more information from the Hop Farm I bought the rhizomes at.

Bottom Line: This is not a Practical Guide for anything. If you love everything hops, this is probably a good read for you. If you are expecting tons of cool stuff to help you brew better beer, take a pass.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not bad, but not very practical 15 mars 2013

The title of the book (probably not chosen by the author!) says that it's a "Practical Guide," among other things. But I didn't find it to be practical.

My biggest issue with the book is that I thought it would be more practical. Compared to "Yeast," also in the Brewing Elements series, this book has very little authoritative advice about how to actually USE hops in brewing. Don't get me wrong; the author does interview people who tell you (something) about different techniques they use for things like dry hopping. But at the end of the day, the author doesn't say "and here's the best way to do it, for the following reason." In that regard, I did not find it very useful in everyday brewing.

Don't get me wrong--I found this book somewhat enjoyable to read. But that doesn't mean it would be a great book except for my misunderstanding of what it was going to be. It's not the most exciting thing in the world, even for brewers. It reads like decent journalism, since it's based overwhelmingly on interviews. Some of the interviewees have a lot of experience and insight, but some do not. I personally was less interested in abstract history--I like knowing the history, but I like it best as it relates to practice for today.

So certainly one problem is with the Brewing Elements series, which needs better overall editorial focus: Is it practical, or is it not? That's probably the biggest problem. I would recommend it for real hop lovers who also want to know a lot about history and hops as they are grown and as a commodity today. But I don't think it is such a useful guide for brewing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential Reading for All Brewers 11 décembre 2012
Par NW_4_Life - Publié sur
Without a doubt, this is most informative book about hops out there. Stan Hieronymus continues his streak of must-buy brewing/beer books. Any brewer that is serious about making the best beer possible needs to buy this book. I suspect that this is going to be an instant classic.
