What is this Blog About?

The BeerSmith Home Brewing Blog is all about making beer at home. Topics include brewing tutorials, homebrewing techniques, product and book reviews, articles on brewing popular beer styles and brewing news. While we occasionally post news/tips related to BeerSmith software, the software is not the primary focus of this site – we have another web site for that.

Our goal is to be the top online repository of high quality articles on homebrewing. To that end, we intend to publish 1-2 magazine quality articles each week. We welcome you to subscribe, either via RSS feed or for delivery of our articles via email using the subscription links on the left sidebar.

Why Subscribe?

An excellent question: I put together a collection of reasons to subscribe to the BeerSmith Blog here.
