For the love of Hops by Stan Hieronymus
Stan Hieronymus expertly explains the nature of hops, their origins, hop quality and utilization--and even devotes an entire chapter to dry hopping. For the Love of Hops also includes a reference catalog of more than 100 varieties and their characteristics.
Good Hop Info but Looking for More...This book has lots of information on hops (obviously). Despite all the information in the book, I think it could have provided better information as to the chemistry of the hops. There is lots of information on the history of hops, farming, and how brewers use the hops. But I found little information on the oils/chemistry of hops. I could have gone for more suggestions on how to use the hops and how the different chemicals/oils in the hops affect beer flavor. I imagine this book will need to be updated down the road as more varieties become available.
