About Cats Meow
Welcome to the World Wide Web version of the Cats Meow!
About the Cats Meow
This cat is now a web-walking cat.
Recipes in this collection are compiled from a variety
of online sources, including Homebrew Digest, the rec.crafts.brewing
newsgroup, the Mead Lovers Digest, the Cider Digest, and from
other forums. The original posting author is always listed in
every recipe and any question about how the recipe was made
or how the beer turned out should be referred to the author.
We assume that anyone using this collection of recipes has a
fundamental knowledge of brewing. Each recipe is identified as
to whether it is an extract or an all-grain recipe. All-grain
recipes are intended for advanced brewers. If you are a first
time homebrewer and are trying to learn how to brew, you can
get some good ideas for recipes here, but for instructions
and hand-holding, see
John Palmer's guide for first time brewers.
