Whoaaaaaa!!!!!!!
« on: September 26, 2011, 03:02:02 PM »
In my study, about a foot below my ceiling is a bookshelf that runs around the room.....So I i'm sitting here with a bud having a home brew and he's reading the titles: Mark Twain, Jimmy Buffet, Frank Zappa, Rush Limbo, Tim Allen and ........ Charlie Papazian.... WAIT, Charlie can't be up there yet, he's "current"...... So I get the stool out and get the book down. Now, I sign and date my books when I buy them......12/92 WHAT? I do not remember buying that, or reading it for that matter, and that happened 20 years ago? OK, so I have the current copy that I bought last year......I guess I have two now...... :o :o :o

Perhaps all of that high altitude time has compressed the memory.  :)

Nice find!  ;)

OK, after further investigation it turns out to be a second edition.....They are now happily reunited next to each other......

I read that book and brewed my first beer around that time. Was it 92-93? Wish I still had the copy. Nice find... You must have had a passing fancy and got distracted. Is there much of a difference in the editions?

If by second edition, you mean _The New Complete Joy_ and you're comparing it to the third edition, there are quite a few differences, particularly in the recipes.
Is that a counter-pressure bottle filler in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

The first one I bought, I think it was 1990, had no index.  The next edition was quite an improvement just for that.

Didn't you starting brewing only last year?  Took a long time for the spark to catch, huh?  I think my mom gave me a 1st or 2nd edition a while ago that I don't know where it is now...oh well.  I already had a 3rd edition, so I was all, I don't need it, blah blah blah...

Nice "find!"  I love that book and just read it for the first time this month.  The way concepts are described really increased my understanding.  One of my co-workers dropped by my office last year and said, "Hey I found this book at a thrift store for 50 cents and thought of you."  I couldn't believe it!  I thanked her and told her that I'd been meaning to buy a copy of the book for years.
