Default Greetings from SW Florida

I've been getting great information from this site since I started homebrewing a few months ago. Just wanted to introduce myself and thank everyone for sharing their knowledge.

Welcome to the forum. I moved to Miami year ago and now up to Ft Lauderdale. Nice to see some more FL people up in here.

Isn't SW Florida a stone's throw from SE Florida?

Pretty much: it's just a couple hours drive across alligator alley.

Hey from Orlando! Man, there seems to be a lot of us Florida folk joining recently. I'd like to plug my local brew store in Orlando, if you're doing a lot of online ordering: Hearts Home Brew. Owned and run by two guys who started off in the food service industry. Really knowledgeable, really helpful. They've helped me out with any questions I've had... including my dumb mistake for buying an all-grain recipe when I didn't have the equipment necessary for all-grain. Fixed that easily enough, though

Hello from Riverview!

I recently moved from Minnesota (Minneapolis) where I brewed several extract batches using supplied from Midwest Supplies. After moving to the Tampa area I was in search for a new local supplier. 30 minutes of searching online I found http://boothsbrewing.com. Only 15 minutes from where I live. I stopped in once after work to chat and purchased "How To Brew" by John Palmer. They have a nice setup with everything an extract/novice brewer would need. I really can't comment on their all grain supplies as I haven't ventured into that side of brewing yet. However, I do know they offer extract and all grain classes. I plan to signup for the new all gain session soon.

I'm hesitant to start brewing again until I build a fermentation chamber. The weather in MN didn't pose any problems but the 90+ weather hear in FL puts me on the worried side.

Send me a PM if you (or any other FL brewer) wants to chat someday.

P.S. I highly recommend the book by Palmer. Packed with information and saved me hours of searching for the answers online.

hello fellow FL brewers.

For supplies in the Tampa area, I highly recommend Southern Brewing. Bit difficult to find, but I don't think there is a better LHBS. Seriously. Hundreds of specialty grains in large bins.
