Poll: How Long Have You Been Homebrewing
With the conclusion of our most recent blog poll, it was worthwhile to report back and memorialize the results we recieved. Based on the question: "How long have you been homebrewing?", presented below is the relative experience of the readers who participated...
Total Votes: 13
I have to admit that I was a little surprised by the distribution of the votes towards fewer years of experience. Thinking about it now, I'm not sure why I had that impression. But I would also take these results as a very possitive sign for the hobby; recent years have seen an influx of new individuals who are starting to homebrew. More homebrewers means more resources, more collective intelligence, and a louder voice.
What also amuses me about the results is the fact that Tom and I represent the bookends of this range. One of us has been at it for just about a year and the other is pushing into his second decade of brewing. I'll leave it up to the readers to figure out who is who.
