General Homebrew Discussion / AHA Learn to Homebrew Day 2012
« on: October 31, 2011, 12:23:31 PM »
AHA Learn to Homebrew Day is Saturday, November 5.

Whether you've never brewed, wished you brewed more often or are a seasoned homebrewer - be sure to pick up some ingredients at your local homebrew supply shop and get brewing!  http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/directories/find-a-supply-shop

Learn to Homebrew
www.HomebrewersAssociation.org is full of homebrewing information you can use to make your first batch. Visit the Learn to Homebrew Day page to find all kinds of helpful information about homebrewing beer.
http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/events/learn-to-homebrew-day

Brewing Sites
Host your own brewing site or find one in your area. Either way, the AHA Forum is the place to find information about Learn to Homebrew Day sites. http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?board=48.0

If you're hosting your own site, use our Learn to Homebrew Day resources to help promote the event. http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/events/learn-to-homebrew-day/how-to-celebrate

Post Photos
Be sure to take lots of pictures during your brew session. Then, post them to the AHA Facebook page. Let's see all those happy brewers in action! http://www.facebook.com/pages/American-Homebrewers-Association/19834173309

Cheers!

The American Homebrewers Association's newly expanded Homebrew Supply Shop directory is now the most complete, up-to-date list of shops anywhere, online or in print. http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/directories/find-a-supply-shop

This expanded directory includes both AHA Member Shops (thank them for their support of the AHA!) and non-member shops alike.

You can search the directory by state (results are sorted by city) or by typing in keywords (e.g., shop name) to find a nearby homebrew supply shop.

AHA Member Shop listings will also appear in Zymurgy magazine twice per year, in the March/April and September/October issues. The complete directory will of course be at your fingertips online, anytime.

See the new and improved Homebrew Supply Shop directory on HomebrewersAssociation.org for yourself.   http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/directories/find-a-supply-shop

Cheers,

To make it even more fun, you can bookmark Favorites, add notes, and customize your audio and video effects! http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/zymurgy/ezymurgy

Check out the November/December issue of eZymurgy and when you're finished, go back and re-read every Zymurgy issue of 2011!

To access eZymurgy, log in to your AHA member account on www.HomebrewersAssociation.org and check out this new AHA benefit. http://bit.ly/AHALogIn
