Knightly Spirits in Orlando is awesome (the Hiawassee Road location), but I see that's a pretty long drive from where you are at.

Got my shiny new (well, used and somewhat dinged) kegerator set up. After Chris bought the $20 Sanyo a few weeks ago right from under my nose, I picked up a used 4910 today. Cleaned it and threaded the almost-too-short gas line through the drain plug. Unfortunately, it had a gas line leak when I tested it, but it looks like I was able to fix it with a new hose clamp.

Since the top had paint stains and scratches on it, I sanded it smooth and sprayed it with some black chalkboard paint.

Just dropped off 6 different beers at Swamphead to enter into the Hogtown BrewOff. The Swamphead setup is pretty cool, but it was a bitch to find.

Been there, yeah it was hard to find the first time. How is the tasting room coming along?

Just kegged my RyePA. Still needs to be dryhopped with an oz of Amarillo.

I think something went wrong with the Berliner Weisse I made. I had a tremendous fermentation after I added the lactobacillus, but nothing since I added the regular yeast. I'll let it sit for a few days; then I'll start messing with it if nothing happens (probably adding some more wort along with some fresh yeast, maybe even Brett).

so here is my awesome story from last weekend. i was driving up to minneola to look at a bike. i do a u turn to head back home and the word brewery catches my eye. it was on the back of a building in a small plaza. very easy to miss. needless to say i swung a hard right to check it out. so it ends up being a small brewery that ive never heard of in the middle of nowhere, sweet! it gets even better. they have a tasting room and its open. me and liz had a few beer and grabbed a sixer for home. anyone ever heard of them, effinheimerbeer.com. it was pretty good beer i would definatly go back.

is anyone going to the florida beer fest in orlando this saturday?

I had their beers when they were called Lagniappe and wasn't too impressed but I've been told they stepped things up a bit.
