Thank You AHA community
« on: February 11, 2014, 05:31:49 PM »
I just started reading Gordon Strong's Brewing Better Beer and he talks a lot about learning from other brewers and it occured to me that I don't really know any other brewers except all of you on this forum.  I have never met any of you but the immense body of knowledge and experience in the AHA and this forum have been instrumental in furthering my understanding of the brewing pocess.

I have not asked many questions on the forum over the years but I have read a lot.  It turns out most of the question I have had were answered somewhere in time on this forum and all I had to do was seach for it!   

With that said I'd like to send out a big thank you to the AHA community for helping to teach me how to brew better beer  ;D

Cheers!

Very well written etbrew. I have the same sentiment.

+1.  My thoughts exactly. It's a great community of brewers and knowledge. While I feel competent to be a help to some, I learn constantly as well. How it should be.

Maybe this year we can arrange a more formal AHA Forum meetup at NHC and put faces to names.

I did meet many last year, and we went to Nodding Head for a beer or three. Should do it again,

+1 to what the OP said! The folks here have been more than happy to help me with good solid advice and guidance. I've looked around for other online resources but this forum is the best. As others have said the "noise" here is far less than on other boards. Welcome!

Thanks to everyone for all the help.  Hopefully I've returned the favor a time or two.

This is a community that lives the concept of "pay it forward".  I received help so I can give others help now.  You all do the same in spades!

Due to work/family/life-in-general constraints, I don't belong to a homebrew club. But honestly, the forums here suit my needs just fine. It's a great community we have going here, and I'm thankful if I can give back even a fraction of what I've learned (and continue to learn on a daily basis) from everyone here.
