You can subscribe to BYO with free delivery through Acclaim Subscriptions, it is cheaper through an e book but they aren't much cop for referencing, down loaded Kitchen Garden but it isn't the same as turning a page, the only reason I stopped that was because after 3 years it seemed like they were repeating the same topics.

Acclaim look to be US based, do they do free delivery to UK?
BYO do international subscriptions at a cost, but to be honest I think Craft Beer and Brewing is the better magazine.

Randy Mosher - Mastering Homebrew is my favourite recommendation.

I have tons and my favourites are:

Brew your own British Real Ale - A great starter book
Brew like a Monk - Great book about Belgian beers
Farmhouse Ales - Covers Saison and Biere de Garde in great detail
Any of Ron Pattinson's books

This looks a brilliant idea. I have just had a look at Readly and it seems a hell of a bargain if you buy a lot of magazines. I notice the two brewing magazines mentioned in the thread are on the US Readly site and not the GB one. Before I sign up, any idea if these can be read from a GB account. Also what happens to any downloaded/offline magazines if you cancel a subscription. Are these still readable or have you lost them.

Yes Wrongway, when you cancel the magazines remain in your library, majority of my brewing books are on the kindle but when it comes to a series of magazines they become more difficult to access useful information unless you keep notes of page and edition.

To the OP another book as you get into brewing is 'Water' water chemistry is a lot less daunting than what a lot of people seem to think it is, easy to do and probably one of the best ways of improving your beer.

Thank's for that foxy. I have signed up, it's well worth it and is going to save the family a fortune. I thought the magazines stayed on their servers unless you chose to download for reading on an aircraft for example. I presume it's those that you mean can be read if you cancel subscription. Not sure how you would read them on say an iPad though if you cancelled as access to the app needs login and password.

I found one of the magazines mentioned i this thread. Brew Your Own but the second one, Craft Beer and Brewing I can't find listed. Is it still available via Readly?
