Default Hellooooo from Florida!

Hello All!

I'm new to this board but not too new to homebrewing. I've been brewing beer and wine off and on since...well....since the first edition of "Uncle Charlie's" bible, and have most recently been very busy with entering comps and attempting to get a local hb club off the ground too.

I would like to meet other local brewers from the greater Volusia County area to get together to brew with and or to sample brews.

Looks like a fantastic board with a LOT of good info too.

Just wanted to say HI to all you regs out there.

Hello and welcome!

I'm 'next door' in Seminole Co.

I'm in Oviedo. I've been meaning to join the CFHB but just never do...seems they always meet when I'm brewing.

SpanishCastleAle..........Cool! They have a great club and I am a member too. We just started up a new club serving the Volusia area (Deland; Daytona etc.) and I am currently the interim spokesperson. Our club name is the Volusia County Home Brewers Guild, and we have a yahoo group page here: VCHBG : Volusia County Home Brewers Guild

It's a members only group.

I'm an all grainer (non biased) and average 2 brew sessions a month. (enjoying my recent Irish Stout right now...just tapped it today!) I have an ESB, an IPA and an Irish Red in fermenters now.

Perhaps we can get together sometime to share brews or to enjoy a session. Or maybe you can come to one of our club meetings in Deland over at Abbeys Pub.We meet the last Sunday of each month.

The previous poster Craig is a member as well.

Nice to talk to you...what are your favorite styles?

BTW...here's the url of my outdated blog..LOL!!

Wotta's HomeBrew Blog

Keep n touch...!

How can you possibly average 2 brews per month? Do you take 6 months off somewhere in there?

Thanks for the invite. I may do that...I think Deland is closer than the CFHB meeting place. I need some knowledgeable people to test my beers.

I'm an AG brewer that brewed in the late 90's but quit for 9 years and got back into it @ this new years. I've been on a tear (for me) and have brewed every weekend this year except the first one (all the brews in my sig were brewed 1/10/09 and later). I'm doing 2 this weekend...a Foreign Extra Stout (a quasi Shakespeare Stout clone...with Pacman yeast too!) and a Belgian Pale Ale (another one). The BPA is just so I can harvest the Trappist yeast and get some jars of it...then pitch the rest of that cake into the Tripel which is the weekend after I keg the BPA.

I don't think i have a favorite style...I'm not a hophead though.
