I kegged this yesterday at 1.014 and will let it sit for awhile under CO2 (3+ weeks). I was surprised at the clarity which might suggest that the 6 row had something to do with it. Until then I have...

Chicago Brew Works in Plainfield is decent. I've heard of the Two Brother's Brewers Co-op but don't know how good they are.
