Thanks for that info Jason. I may give them a call and see if they would be interested in that. Maybe some kind of charter club of them. Plus maybe they have some folks who live down this way and woukd be interested in getting us up and going.
I get all of my ingedients at the South Blvd. location of AB. They do a great job there and their grain crush is perfect for my setup. Most of my hardware I get online or Craigslist! I don't know anyone here that welds. I've also been toying around with the idea of building a single tier set up but I haven't decided on which way to go yet. If I find someone, I'll let you know.
brockettbrews: I'll brew anything that sounds good! I've been mostly brewing "classic" styles. I just brewed an American Stout yesterday. I entered an Arrogant Bastard clone in the Nashville Music City Brew Off and got some great feedback. Scored a 38, which I felt good about for my first competition.
Hopefully we can get something started here this year so stay tuned!
