- yes that is a great advanced book Harry. Gert's book is a good starter for Kiwi's as everything mentioned in it is readily available legally in the brewshops and supermarkets.

Yeah harry. thanks for pointing that out. Cool link too mike. I think i've read the HTML version of Gert's website 2dozen times before I found HD (and later AD) and enhanced my knowledge.. That textbook was a quick download. I've been reading aall afternoon.. think i've done 8 chapters already. Certainly a book for those of us (like myself) who aspire to one day go legit. as it also covers some of the economic factors. I'll look for a hardbound version on alibris.com

:!:

Edit: Nevermind buying it. They want $156 for a used copy! I've got a spare ream of paper round here somewhere..

Yeah I've had this one for a few years now, along with several dozen other tech books on the industry. If I had to buy 'em all today, I'm guessing 10+ grand. I wanted to put 'em up in a lender library, but copyright lawyers are sharks. Maybe one day I'll find a way. :(

something's wrong with the textbook.. there seem to be pages missing? I've tried this twice and the page count gets messed up when i try to build a double-sided page from a ream.

There's no info missing, but several interntionally blank pages have been omitted. This throws out the print count (to stop counterfeiting). You can fix this if you have the full copies of Adobe Acrobat and Pagemaker. You need to add in a blank page where necessary, then redo the layout. It's a lot of work, & personally I wouldn't bother. If you really must have hardcopy, just print the pages as you need them, put 'em in a binder.

I prefer the electronic version anyway. Much easier to do a search & bookmark, add notes.

Be happy you have the info. The 5th ed of the book is over $250.
