Anybody subscribe to Zymurgy?? What do you think of it??

I've borrowed a few issues fromthe late 90s, wandering what it is like now, compared to BYO maybe?

Hey Andrew,

Any chance of listing the recipes for the first 2 for those of us without access to the mag? Even just a basic rundown?

I borrowed and read Pedro's collection of Zymurgy mags from the last 4 years.

I reckon they are fairly good with some great information on styles, recipes, methods, equipment etc. Lots of stuff on American Brew Clubs as well.

It is supplemented with a fair bit of wank as well but all in all probably the best brewing mag going around, a step up from BYO IMHO!

Wee Stu,

These new issues are not a patch on the ones from the 90's (i have a Few) there half the size and they seem to be more about the american brewing association and less about actual brewing, but still a good read, and yeah I do subscribe.

Thanks heaps Andrew - no worries on the beer. Anytime you are in Newcastle mate!

I brewed an APA style a week and a half ago as my 2nd all grain brew and my recipe wasn't a million miles from the Sierra Nevada clone listed which pleases me. I used Centennial and Cascade though and had a little more varied malt bill. Still, at least in the ball park.

Thanks again,

Shawn.

my lovely wife got my a membership to AHA last christmas. doesnt help a heck of a lot out here but it was nice. as far as i know thats the only way to get a zymurgy subscription.

as for zymurgy, i have to say i was/am a bit disappointed. a fairly thin mag which has been hit and miss from issue to issue. some have had some really good aritcles with interesting recipies. others have taken about 10 minutes to go through with no intention of being picked up again. not to mention they have all arrived at the end of their issue period (i just received the july/august issue), if at all. i understand about the extra time for shipping, but i would be interested ot know when they get delivered in the states.
havent seen BYO to compare the two.
