Brew it Yourself


The Two Thirsty Gardeners show that brewing your own delicious alcoholic drinks can be surprisingly quick, easy, and inexpensive. Taking their two great loves—alcohol and gardening—Nick Hood and Richard Moyle provide home brewing recipes to inspire you to turn a surplus harvest, a visit to a fruit farm, or a delivery from the supermarket into a fantastic variety of drinks. Brew It Yourself is a collection of more than 75 home brewing recipes, sure to put a fizz back into this popular pastime by adding a modern twist to some old favorites and introducing a whole new range of drinks to tantalize the taste buds, with drinks ranging from a classic elderflower sparkle to homemade absinthe. They’ll tell you how to turn surplus fruit harvests into amazing wines and liqueurs; introduce you to the ancient arts of mead and cider-making; guide you through some easy beer recipes; incorporate lavender and nettles into some sparkling drink recipes; and take you on a world booze cruise that includes a Mexican pineapple tepache, Scandinavian mulled glogg, and Finnish lemon sima. Brew It Yourself also debunks the myths around home brewing, celebrates experimentation, and proves that creating your own tasty alcoholic drinks doesn’t need to be complicated, doesn’t need to be costly and, most importantly, can be a whole lot of fun!
