How many home brewers in US?
 
Anyone seen a statistic of roughly how many home brewers there are in the US? Always wondered that. Around here there are quite a few people who home brew but living up North, Iowa, I rarely met anyone who did.

The best place I know to look would be the Brewer's Association. I poked around their website, but didn't find anything.

BYO lists "91,000 readers every issue"

So I will assume at least 91k. Seems like quite a few. I thought it would be much lower.

What is the largest home brew forum in regards to membership?

Sounds like a great poll question.

91k seems like it would be way too low. I'm sure there are a lot of homebrewers that don't subscribe to BYO. I, personally, have never looked at a single issue of the mag, nor have 4 of my friends in OH that homebrew, so...

the 1.2 million quote seems more reasonable to me, but I'd like to know where they get the data from.

the population of the US is just about 300,000,000, so if there are 1.2 million homebrewers, that's one HB'er for every 300 people.

That 1.2 Million number DOES seem a little high when you look at it that way.
