If you’ve got a budding homebrewer on your hands, there’s nothing better than Charlie Papazian’s classic Complete Joy of Homebrewing.
As for the seasoned homebrewer, chances are there are quite a few pieces of equipment on their wish list—the trick is to figure out what. If you can find a way to casually inquire about how they chill their wort, whether they’ve got an all-grain setup, or if they wish they had a bigger brew pot, well done. If not, you can’t go wrong with a case of empty bottles and blank labels, or a set of NSF certified oven mitts.
Check out your local homebrew store or order online through Williams Brewing, whose beer equipment ranges from novice to nanobrewer.
