Thanks Drew, I've got the hard copy but the e-copy will be nice bus reading.

would love to see some downloadable brewing books. 



Brewers Publications has some books available on Kindle but only a handful.  Actually we are working on a new digital initiative beginning this year.  We will be investing in both epub format (works on most all readers) and a kindle format for titles.  The conversion process is note a quick thing as our books are not text only.  Text only books are pretty quick and easy but you start throwing in recipes, sidebars, charts and graphs and it can throw a lot of formatting out of whack.  

In any case, I have two of them in production right now.  How to Brew by John Palmer is first up on deck and will be followed by Sacred Herbal and Healing Beers.  This technology will also allow us to bring back out of print titles that have been requested (think the Lambic book from the Classic Beer Style Series).  I'd love to be able to have them all up asap but as mentioned it is more complicated than you may think though I expect it will get easier as time goes on.  I'd rather take the time and do them right if we are going to put them out there.  In the end with all the variables that come into play with these eReaders, I am doing what we can to ensure a good experience for the reader despite some technological limitations.  

Stay posted on new releases and when eBooks are released by following progress on:

@ Kristi!!!!

1. Thanks for weighing in on your perspective regarding BCS recipes.
2. In regard to Brewer's Publications in an e-format: Super AWESOME!  I am looking forward to whatever I can get for my Kindle Fire.  I like to browse topics and info on brewing when I have a few minutes or when I am sitting drinking a beer, and would rebuy some to replace my tattered copies and I know I would make more spur of the moment kindle book purchases if I could get the Lambic book the minute I was wondering about something sour.  I especially would love Michael Jackson's works at my fingertips while sitting at the Cheeky Monk on Colfax, for example.
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...

Kristi, as long as we've got you here, do you have any French language brewing technique books? I've talked with both Randy Mosher and Charlie Papazian about getting translations done and they're interested, but finding a publisher here that'll take it on is tough.

Cool idea. For a direction toward a publisher, perhaps check with Tim Webb: http://booksaboutbeer.com/

Kristi, I would love to see Analysis of Brewing Techniques available electronically. A few years back I tried to buy a copy used and it was basically impossible. I got one from like Alabama or something through inter-library loan and read it but I would love to own a copy.

I've been brewing my way through BCS and have been extremely happy with each batch of beer.  I think the recipes are well-written, and the short style profile that accompanies each is helpful.  I've been recommending this book to any brewer that I can, because I see the value in a proven recipe, and like I said, they're turning out to be fantastic recipes.

You should try to convince your friend to take them down.

Seriously though, I can see posting a recipe or two with attribution to the author(s) (JZ/JP) as a sign of respect and giving them credit where it is due. Even without permission.

But to post them all on a website would be an act of extreme douchery- regardless if it was legal or not. IMO we owe a lot to JZ and JP especially and all the others who have taken the time and effort to publish their experiences and knowledge.

Best answer so far.

I also think that he can legally copy the ingredient lists for some recipes, but the more he copies, the closer he is to infringing on Jamil's 'collection' of recipes. The text accompanying each recipe offering procedures and tips for the best result are more likely to fall under copyright.
