I'm torn on what to do Saturday. I really want to get out to the Special Hoperations event, but I don't have the equipment to bring out. So right now, I'm leaning towards heading over to the Independent. They have a great collection of sour beers and that's one of my weaknesses.

I might be stopping by to pick up some ingredients that day. Not sure how long I can stay as the mothers in my family want to have their day a day early to miss out on all the others that will be doing it on Sunday.

Wow, sounds like there's a bunch of different brew events in Tampa on Saturday! I wish I could make it to all of them!

I know there will definitely be homebrew samples at the Southern Brewing event... They have a bunch of beers on tap in their little serving room. I plan on bringing my portable kegerator as well with an IPA.

As far as the logistics of getting equipment there, thankfully I can fit everything I need in my small SUV (or at least I did last year). Yes, you definitely need to bring your own water, they will have hoses around for immersion chillers but obviously you won't be able to get toooo chilled in this heat. I'm brewing an Octoberfest lager, so I'll chill it as low as I can there and then bring it home and finish the chill in my fermentation fridge. Not ideal but it works.
