I subscribe to "Brew Your Own".

I've tried others, but BYO is oriented to the homebrewer with lots of good info.

I get both BYO and Zymurgy. I like them both, though I was just in the throne room flipping through Zymurgy, and realized that the last page is usually a totally worthless essay. Otherwise, I enjoy just about everything I read in both.

Here's the thing with both of them: you'll read through each issue, and think, "Interesting style, but I don't know if it's for me." Then, three months later, you'll find the stack of back-issues, and realize that an article you read and tossed originally is all of a sudden quite germane to your current brewing interests.

It's good to read both and then save them for future reference - especially since BYO doesn't make a lot of their current articles available on their site, and Zymurgy usually only features one article on their site.

I agree with you, plus as a bonus, since they only send 8 and 6 issues the more the better. It seems like a long time to wait between issues, I get so excited when one shows up, but I guess I am a beer nerd that way.

Same here.. I mainly read BYO and Zymurgy (have subscribed to both for many years). I used to really like Brewing Techniques as well but they stopped publishing that magazine a while ago. You can still get back issues if interested though http://brewingtechniques.com/

I have just as much fun looking at a Williams Brewing or Northern Brewer catalog heh. And I'll occasional flip through an All about Beer, Beer, or Imbibe if I see one.

+1 to BYO an Zymurgy. I have learned a ton from both and love that they cater to beginners as well as pros.

BYO and Zymurgy. I have learned a lot from both and save all issues to refer to later. I have every issue of BYO and all but 10 of the earliest Zymurgys. Sometimes I'll start from the beginning and reread a bunch of issues.
