Hi all,

I'm very new to homebrewing (first batch still in primary), but really enjoy reading the forums and books to relax and de-stress, etc. I did a quick search through the forums and couldn't readily find a thread related to people's favorite homebrew blogs, but sorry if this has already been covered ad nauseum elsewhere.

I was just wondering--favorite blogs both for engaging writing and actually being useful with new knowledge/things you hadn't thought of before?

Two of my favorite podcasts are:

Basic Brewing (audio and video)


The Jamil Show

Haven't really run across a decent blog, though (but I'm sure they're out there-- hence your question).

On Deck: Jamil's Vanilla Robust Porter
Fermenting: Orange Blossom Mead
Kegs: Element 56 Pale Ale, Ron's Belgian Blonde, Summer'n Saison, Furloughktoberfest '09, Grateful Pale Ale, Sam Adams Cream Stout Clone, EdWort's Apfelwein
Planning: n/a

I'd say my blog, but it tends to suck. Not nearly enough updates, and I'm often too lazy to post pictures. Maybe I will post today (maybe with pictures too!) about my amber ale that I'm kegging.

I think The Mad Fermentationist is the only primary homebrewing blog I read... Shut Up About Barclay Perkins is great if you love history, dry facts and a British personality (I'm 3/3). Papazian has a blog but it's not always the most entertaining read. Jay Brook's Brookston Beer Bulletin can be entertaining, especially if you like to know when brewers' birthdays are and seeing the word 'neo-prohibitionist.'
