I wasn't sure where to post this, so I'm starting here. I just found a home brew supply store in the southwest suburbs of Chicago(Bolingbrook). It's called Brew & Grow. They are on the corner of rte. 53 and Crossroads pkwy. I am new to home brewing, but was quite impressed by the selection of equipment and ingredients. They do have most of the store dedicated to hydroponics, but seem to have everything for making beer and wine also. They have only been open 5 weeks or so. Just to let any other local home brewers know.
