That was not so long ago.Yes, there are very few non-AHA members who enter. Still, we'll save those spots for AHA members. Maybe in the future we can meet the demand and include non-AHA members again. Ah, for the days when the competition never sold out . . .+1 on the initally limiting to AHA members. If you are that interested in brewing, you SHOULD be an AHA memberMany agree, and it's been brought up before. But I think someone researched it and the number of non-AHA members entering is so small that although it's a fine idea, it will be a negligable difference. There is overwhelming demand from members alone.
Tom, has anyone plotted the entries vs. year? That would have a nice trajectory, flattened by the limit being reached the last 2 years.
