How do I make this a community wiki question? – Stefan Moser Oct 6 '11 at 1:18
I think you have to flag it to alert the admins. – FrustratedWithFormsDesigner Oct 6 '11 at 15:51
I modified the question so it's easier to answer and made it wiki – Nathan Koop Oct 6 '11 at 17:08

There are really only 2 magazines devoted to homebrewing...Zymurgy and Brew Your Own (BYO). Both are pretty good, although I lean toward Zymurgy (disclaimer:I've written for both). What Makes me prefer Zymurgy is partially that I think the articles are a bit better, but mainly that you get it by joining the American Homebrewers Association. That means you support homebrewers and the AHA's legislative efforts.
