I know that I don't post much, but (theres always a but), I agree mostly 
with Magdelena and Tuhtahl.

My specific feelings are below...

Experienced people contacts.  Usually what I want when brewing is someone 
to hold my hand and say "Its ok to try this" or "its worked for me" or 
"when that happened to me I did this".

Recipes.  Ability to buy things in group that we can't in singular 
(filtering system anyone?)

See #2.

I think that anything that causes more brewers should happen.  Anything 
that makes brewers leave shouldn't.
I really don't know what those things are yet, but I'll point them out when 
I see them.

Show people how easy it is, and be receptive to any person's first brewing 
effort.  I know I was almost SCARED the first time I tried it "What if I 
screw up" "what if nobody likes it" that it prevented me from trying it by 
myself for months.  Only when a kind man named Hamlin showed me how to do 
my first batch was I able to try things by my self.
