    I would assume Lakeland. It's between Tampa and Orlando.

    Very cool set up!

    I don't have a lot of space to brew in currently so I do 5 gallon BIAB mostly; with an extract batch every now and again.

    I'm seriously considering doing a electric brew set up but I'm thinking I'd do a two vessel system with HERM and a bag/basket for mash tun/boil vessel. That way I could sparge a little.

    Or RIMS system and stick with a single vessel no sparge method.

    Unfortunately I blew most of my play money on a new truck... going to have to start stashing it away again.

    Never.
    I am on vacation, so it is lunchtime all the time. :devil:
    Went to a local brewery yesterday for lunch.
    Had a a stout, an ipa and their seasonal pils.
    All were solid. The pils was my favorite.

    I'm planning to go electric in the next year or so (I've been planning it for a few years lol). Probably 3 vessel. Haven't settled on RIMS or HERMS yet. Current setup is LP with pretty much all gravity feed. Going to look at hardware at NHC this year and decide.

    Very cool. I like the wood stand. I wish I had space for something like that.

    Let us know what you see at NHC. A buddy from my brew club is going too. Sounds like it's a pretty fun event.

    If you like a super dirty,gritty, dbl ipa then I recommend it. Definitely a slow drink. I would pair it up with seafood, cold,cured, meats; or a fruit platter.

    Went to a John Harvard's brewery/restaurant for dinner.
    Tried a few samples.
    Their White Widow Amber was my favorite followed by the IPA. Least liked was the stout. Was trying to be too much and never hit the mark on anything.
    The most interesting brew they had was the "Bavarian Pretzel" ale. Smelled like fresh baked bread and had a nice flavor.

    I'm leaning towards SS BrewTech at the moment (I just bought a couple of their conical fermenters), but want to check out all the options in person. This is like my fifth or sixth year in a row of going.
