I have been extract brewing for a year. I would love to try all-grain but wonder if someone in the QCA is willing to show me the ropes. I can pay for the grain bill and the hops - you keep the beer.

I'm from Bloomington, IL -- so it's a bit of a drive.

We're in the Champaign area- even further.

I'm in the QC in Davenport, but I haven't even brewed my first extract batch yet. I'm still compiling equipment here. I certainly wouldn't mind sitting in on an all grain brew to see how the process goes, though. I have a rough understanding from my readings here and in Palmer's book.

I work at the arsenal, but live in Atkinson, exit 27 on I-80.

I do partial mashes (half grain/half DME). You guys are more than welcome to join me on Sunday morning.
