This is the sequel to The Cat’s Meow—it contains every recipe that was in the first volume (February 1991), plus almost every recipe posted to the Homebrew Digest since the first volume. Yet it’s smaller in disk space and in printed form, due to a simpler 2–column format and the omission of appendixes.
In this edition we also branch out a little by including recipes from other sources, such as the Usenet rec.crafts.brewing newsgroup and even a few donated recipes that were sent directly from the authors rather than being posted.
Many thanks to all of the fine folks on the homebrew digest who posted these recipes and who answered questions about them. Thanks also to Ed Meeks for reviewing and proofreading the document and to Barbara Stevens for drawing the happily drinking cat on the cover.
