      Yes there are more recipes in the book, over 35, I think it’s more convenient to access as well.

    I will order from Turkey. Mail delivery to Turkey takes 2 or 3 months. Is it possible to order as PDF?

    Hi Francois
    I have been following your blog for more than three years when your experiences were in its own. I found your blog by accident when I was looking for making malt at home. I live in Syria, a country that does not make beer, nor does it make malt, nor grow or sell a hops. I made a malt from local barley and thanks to your informative blog. As for the hop, I still have a lot of difficulty getting it, and I have not been able to get seed yet.
    I love you for your beautiful book and I would like to translate it into Arabic if you do not mind it.

      Ferasof, thanks for the kind words. I do mind if it is translated because it could be sold by someone else electronically without my knowledge. Perhaps we could work on an Arabic version of the book to sell on Amazon. E-mail me here
