Default Chicago Area AG Seminar!

Good news for all of us Chicago area homebrewers interested in all-grain brewing! The Brewers Coop is holding a free all-grain seminar on Saturday, October 1st. The seminar will run from 10:00am – 3:00pm. They have a sign up sheet at the shop, but when I was there yesterday, they said it was only so they can have an idea of how many people will show up. They usually like to serve brats and refreshments during seminars and wouldn’t want to run short.

This is a great opportunity to learn from a couple of homebrewers turned pro! The Brewers Coop is located in the Two Brothers Brewing facility. The address is 30W114 Butterfield Road in Warrenville, IL, just west of Route 59 and north of I-88. Their phone number is 630-393-BEER(2337).

I will definitely be there and hope to see some of you there, too!

That would be cool! I'll be there from the start, so I'll fill you in on anything you might have missed!

I'm guessing some of the members of the Urban Knaves of Grain homebrew club may be there or helping out, although I don't know that for sure. I hope so, as two of their members just won gold medals at the 2005 NHC.

I believe one the members (Ted Seaman ?)of Knaves owns and operates the home brewshop in St. Charles. I teach in St. Charles and frequent that shop for most my needs. I'll ask "Who's Rhoobarb?" It will be great to put a face to the name.

Cheers!

Yeah, do that. Here's a tip - I usually wear brown hiking boots with bright red shoelaces on the weekends!

I only have 5 all-grain sessions under my belt, so I'm really looking forward to this!

I don't think I have anything major going on that day, so I'll try to make it out there (unless the wife makes fun of me too much for being a brewgeek). I'll probably have my Cubs jersey. It's the Michael Barrett #8 jersey. We can all figure out a way to ID each other come Friday night, then maybe we can have a beer or 12 afterwards.

No. She's mad at me for buying it because it was going to be a Christmas present. I geeked out and dropped $160 + tax for the official jersey. It's the official uniform of the Weekend for me (at least until baseball is over).
