Florence, SC

I'm officially moving to Florence, SC for a job and that means I get to brew again starting in June!  I've also signed a lease on a house so I'll be able to get back to a propane burner outside, and can do 5 gallon boils if I want.  I'm still not sure if I want to go back to that much beer because I really liked brewing more frequently in small batches.  I'm sure I'll mix it up a little bit.  The only down side about Florence is that there is no homebrew shop.  I'm going to have to order online like I used to a few years ago.  Shouldn't be a problem, just something to think about now.

I got a water report from Florence recently so I can tweak my water if necessary.
