I started brewing in 1992. Gave it up for several years, then started again recently. Just joined AHA a few months ago. Zymurgy is a definite bonus, but the free advice from the experienced Home Brewers for issues that come up is absolutely priceless. These experienced brewers are willing to share years of experience and help with all kinds of issues relating to brewing. Also, the web site offers many recipes, enjoyable articles, and they work in our favor in legislation for Home Brewers.
Wished I had signed up as a member years ago.
