FYI, and you probably already know this, but the rest of the list
may not, Greg has a web version of the 1736 edition of the "London
and Country Brewer" (done by Jim Liddil) posted at
Another cool web resource is "American Handy Book of the Brewing,
Malting and Auxiliary Trades " by Robert Wahl and Max Henius
Second Edition, 1902, webbed at

Hope these help.
