As for the book is pretty darn good. It's a simple. I initially purchased it on a whim as I was browsing Dymocks for a book on whiskey makers. SWMBO was shopping for shoes so I had some time to kill and I wasn't actually looking for anything specific as I'm still making my way through "The art of fermentation" by Sandor Katz (Book Depository Link
Anyways I picked this up as I saw on the spine that it was by the BYO guys. After opening is up I saw all these clone recipes that I as keen to try and that made me take it too the counter. After getting time to read it I was very surprised that I didn't want to put it down and the clone recipes in the back came as a pleasant surprise as I finished the book.
