Book Errata

As they're found - we'll make sure to post errata and clarifications here to help get the right information out there!

Experimental Brewing Errata

  • pg. 17 - Preparation - It says to see page 000 for instructions on pressure canning. Pressure canning is covered on page 79 Canned Starters
  • pg. 27 - California Magnum - Notes - It says ferment for 12 weeks. Should read - "ferment for 1-2 weeks"
  • pg. 29 - The Queen's Diamonds Barleywine - The amount of Maris Otter is incorrect - it should be 25 lbs, not 15.
  • pg. 31 - Singular Quad - The SRM was mistranscribed - it should be 21.3, not 3.8
  • pg. 69 - Randall Instructions - To clarify the drilling instructions - Use a 1/16th bit - it doesn't have to be special, just go slow and use light pressure. Use a center punch to make the drilling more stable.
  • pg. 107 - IPA Table - West Coast IPA has OG range of 1.06080, it should be 1.060-80.
  • pg. 171 - Fenugreek - The active substance in fenugreek is Sotolon (or Sotolone) not as mispelled in the book as soloton

Everything Hard Cider Errata

  • pg. 63 - Sulfite Dosing Table - the line below the table should say "A teaspoon of potassium metabisulfite contains approximately 1.5 grams of powder

    Homebrew All-Stars Errata

    • pg. 64 - "Hannah Banana Imperial Stout" - The recipe is missing it's hop bill!
    Hops
    4.0 oz Centennial 9.0% AA 60 minutes
    1.0 oz UK Goldings 4.6% AA 30 minutes
    1.0 oz UK Goldings 4.6% AA 10 minutes
    • pg. 73 - "Fanciest Piece of Equipment" - The solenoid is from a furnace, not water heater.
    • pg. 149 - "Choosing Your Bugs" - Mike's quote about Brett Clausenii got modified during editing and we missed the shift in meaning. His original quote follows:
      • "-Brett Clausenii: originally isolated from English casks, old English beers almost always had Brett in them, that's even where Brett gets it's name (Brett= Brit)"
    • pg. 150 - Pediococcus - Another shift in tone from editorial. Mike's original quote follows:
      • "Pediococcus also brings the sourness but can also bring diacetyl and can turn your beer into snot." (aka "Pediococcus causes diacetyl and snot" not "Pediococcus causes diacetyl which can cause snot" which is how the sentence in the book can be read)

    Black Beauty Stout

    Hello Denny and Drew. I am very much enjoying your homebrew all-stars book. I have a question regarding page 117 and John Palmer's Black Beauty Stout recipe. I wanted to brew the recipe so I started entering the data into my BeerSmith 2 software. I am not sure if I am missing someething, unaware of a process or maybe there is a typo in the recipe but once all my grains are entered and I get my estimated starting gravity, I show an estimated final gravity much lower than what the recipe calls for in the book when using the suggested yeast and mash temp. Seeing that one of John's favorite styles is sweet stouts, is it possible that there might be a bit of lactose missing from the recipe? 

    Thank you for your time.
