Real ale and other craft beers have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and as a result more people have been compelled to try making their own homebrew. However, while the concept behind making beer is simple, the execution can at times seem complex and confusing. The key to bridging the gap between brewing in theory and practice is being able to spot the signs of trouble and know how to respond.
CAMRA’s Home-brewing Problem Solver provides the information you need to nip problems in the bud – and, better still, to avoid them in the first place.
Whether you’re a first-timer trying out a new hobby or an old hand looking to produce a finely crafted artisan ale, CAMRA’s Home-brewing Problem Solverprovides the information you need to nip problems in the bud – and, better still, to avoid them in the first place.

“CAMRA’S Home-Brewing Problem Solver is an outstanding practical book that provides excellent guidance for the home-brewer. It is clearly written and addresses the 100 most often asked troubleshooting questions when brewing beer. Each of the 100 well-selected and presented questions is accompanied by its own photographic page to help the reader visualize the problem. The book is broken into eight very intuitive chapters. For the 100 questions, each question has the problem/cause/solution well-articulated on one page, with ‘call out boxes’ or additional information to help the reader on the adjacent photographic page. Difficult concepts, such staling and trans-2-nonenal formation, are explained in a clear and understandable manner. It is rare to see a troubleshooting book with such excellent graphics, clear writing, and at 222 pages at a very affordable price. This book is a valuable addition to any home brewer’s book collection. It is pleasure to read and will help the home brewer avoid many common problems. The authors are to be commended on producing this book, which I am sure was not an easy task. I recommend it highly to both home and craft brewers as an excellent reference book. “
