I think either tomorrow or Friday we will hit the 10k member mark! I wonder if home brewing is becoming more and more popular or just more home brewers are starting to use forums.

If you look at all the stuff that is on backorder at AHS, it seems that homebrewing must be become more popular (or at least AHS).

I read somewhere that 1% of the population are homebrewers. I don't know if that's true or not but that would mean in the US alone there are 3,000,000 brewers. This is clearly the best site on the net so it wouldn't surprise me for that number to double quickly!

You should be congratulated for making a haven for all of us to come to and discuss the greatest hobby there is.

Thanks!!!

I've converted two people at work to homebrewing in the last 2 months.

Modest, but they are hooked now.
