"Does anyone know more about this? Why don't we see if we can at least
"automagically gateway some of it into the mailing list. It's interesting
"that Charlie didn't try to do this, since there must be a couple dozen
"people in Boulder who could have arranged it!

The AHA has arranged to get a couple of sections and libraries under
the wine forum on CI$ (GO WINEFORUM). They are shooting for a formal
announcement on April 1 (no fooling! ;-).

I just signed up myself, and I was looking through it this morning.
It's pretty sad right now. There are a couple of discussions going on
about making champagne and wine barrels. Even the section name is a
compromise: "Beer & Home W/B Mkg". According to Charlie P., they're
still trying to figure out how to make the whole thing go. I would
expect it to take a while before they have it running smoothly.

If you are a subscriber, let's try to get some beer discussion going
over there. As I understand it, the powers-that-be at CI$ don't really
expect this beer thing to have much response, which is why they've
given it a halfhearted ok.
