Links

The internet is full of brewing resources: forums, recipe sites, podcasts, gear reviews, equipment retailers, etc. It can be daunting for the new amateur brewer to distinguish up-to-date, good quality websites from the merely so-so. BrewVIC members have scoured the internet to bring you the following recommended resources. We welcome suggestions to add to our list.

……………………………………………………

Forums

Brewing forums are good places to find solutions to brewing-related questions, to keep up with fresh ideas, and to bounce ideas off brewers all over the world.
