About

When I started writing this book, I planned on it being about adding intangible qualities to beers you make. I started it with stories about accidents that turned out a beer that (for one reason or another) had an exceptional quality to it. As I started writing it however, it started to become a book of stories. 

The book began to write itself. One story would lead to another, which lead to another, and that story took off someplace else that I would investigate and find yet another story.

I have an ebook out there already about brewing, but this one is something totally different.  This book begs to be published! 

Base funding for this project will allow me to produce a more professional book for you. The basic funding will include things like professional editing and marketing, formatting for ebook, full color artwork, and book printing. It also allows me to offer the great incentives you see to the right.

To see the art that is being offered with the higher end packages, please go to www.homebrewingnews.com/book-art/ to see all 7 of the pieces of art being offered.

EXTENDED GOALS

I also have in mind some extended goals, thing that will be made possible as my level of funding increase.

EXTENDED FINANCIAL GOAL = $100,000

Please share in my extended goal, as this level of funding will allow me to produce some very cool products and services for beer enthusiasts. Here is a sample of some of the concepts that I will be developing as the extended goal is met:

  • At this level, Graphic Artist Chris Vest has agreed to do some commissioned art for the book.  This would delay the printing of the book by a few weeks, but would make a book with more graphic art and photos.  This would also add to the art available as part of the awards listed.
  • A 2nd book of stories for the beer lover
  • Production of an affordable, easy to use product line of brewing gear for the homebrewer
  • Training program for passing the BJCP tests
  •  Personalized hands-on training intensives to teach novice homebrewers all about brewing
  • A series of talks on beer related subjects that I can present at your homebrewing club, meeting or forum

When we go beyond this goal, I will add more events to the extended goals list.

Risks and challenges

The original challenge was to create a book that would be really interesting to any beer enthusiast. The book is already written, and I feel like that challenge has been accomplished.

Other challenges that might possibly occur are in the time frame for fulfillment of rewards. I do not see this happening, as I have striven to select only the most reliable sources to produce rewards. Although I have allowed for some extra time for all anticipated production times, sometimes things occur to delay a project. Should that occur, I will keep you posted.

Of course, there is the challenge of what happens when my extended goals are met. There could be delays in book production when new art work is added. I will, of course, keep you posted about that as well.
