General Homebrew Discussion / Re: AHA Recipe WIKI broken?

Thanks for pointing this out. We recently decommissioned the Homebrew CLub Wiki since a very small amount of people use it every year, and it looks like it took the Homebrewopedia down with it.

I'll talk to our webmaster about the Homebrewopedia Wiki since as of now that should still be up.


The Pub / Re: Beer Trivia Quiz, AHA main page.

I got 4/5. Missed the Geo. Washington question.

It was incorrectly published in The Oxford Companion to Beer that Washington's small beer was written in his journal in 1737. The thing about that is it would've meant he was only 5 years old at the time... It was supposed to be 1757, and we've since made that change to the quiz.

Thanks for taking it everyone! If you have a topic you think would make for a cool Tuesday Beer Trivia quiz in the future, I'm all ears!


Check out this video of Miami Heat's Chris Bosh and Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione touring LA while homebrewing a stout in the back of their stretch limo.


It got me thinking... what other athletes or "celebrities" out there are also homebrewers? Here are a few I know off the top of my head:
  • Jared Veldheer (Arizona Cardinals)
  • Wil Wheaton (Stand By Me, Start Trek)
  • Aisha Tyler (voice of 'Lana' from the animated show Archer)

The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) Governing Committee is soliciting nominations for two opening seats in 2016. Governing Committee positions are held for three-year terms.

If you, or someone you know, would be a good fit in helping shape the American Homebrewers Association, please let us know by following the link below. Nominations are due by November 30, 2015.

I've seen people rig up exhaust hoods, like you might have over your stove top, to push steam outside.

I have the same issue in my house in the winter. I usually open the windows, set up some fans, and put on a jacket since my house is about to be freezing  8)

Thanks for the update, Crispy! We'll get this info spread around on the website and social media.

Very sad, indeed, Jim.

Gary Glass also had a few words to share about Byron and his influence on the beer and brewing communities:

Great find! We also have an "intro to kegging" guide on with some handy diagrams, tips on setup, cleaning, carbing and all that good stuff.

Welcome to the forum, Derek!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: I'm doing a reddit AMA today!
« on: August 11, 2015, 05:03:02 PM »
A) Congrats!

B) I am not a redditor, but AMA - means ask me anything. While I doubt that the homebrewer crowd will try to rake you over the coals, it can't hurt to be prepared for off-topic questions.

thanks for the heads up!

This is awesome! Also, you can call it an "AMAA" (ask me ALMOST anything) if you want to play it on the safe side and reserve the right to not answer things.

I look forward to checking it out!

The old Commercial Calibration webpages were taken down because they took quite a long time to put together and would only get a dozen or so visits a month, and that was when it was doing well. It could go weeks without anyone going there at all. We opted to just keep a list and point people the issues via the electronic magazine.

I will absolutely bring this idea up with the Web and Zymurgy teams and see if it's something we'll bring back.


Hey all,

We've got a bulk of the 2015 National Homebrewers Conference seminars (audio and visual) online for AHA members to access. There is TONS of great material on all things beer, mead and cider. Be sure to snoop through past years, too.

You will notice a few seminars that currently don't have the slides available. We are working on tracking those down, and will get them available as soon as we possibly can. So hang tight!

Find the seminars here:

Just a heads up...

Audio and Visual presentations from the 2015 National Homebrewers Conference should be up by the end of the week.
