Brew It Yourself : Make Your Own Craft Drinks with Wild and Home-Grown Ingredients


The Two Thirsty Gardeners are leading a home-brewing revolution. Prioritizing wild and home-grown ingredients, but also providing shop-bought alternatives, Richard Hood and Nick Moyle prove that creating your own tasty craft drinks doesn't need to be complicated, costly or time-consuming.

The book includes 80 unique recipes, including home brewed beers, wines, liqueurs and boozy sodas, all featuring adventurous natural ingredients like dandelions, nettles, lavender and blackberries. Try out fancy foraged cocktails such as Spruce Martini or Rosehip Lime Mocktail and discover how easy it is to make your own vermouth, cider and even absinthe! With a new section dedicated to low and no-alcohol brews, there is truly a recipe for every occasion.

By outlining the basic approaches to each drink's method of production, debunking myths and celebrating experimentation, this book takes the fear out of the science of fermentation - so there really is no reason not to brew it yourself!
