This one (group Buy #8) has been over and done with for more than two months. Follow this thread for announcement of the next one which will probably be around Labor Day or so. Me and the guys who help me run this are taking the summer off to brew and drink.

for those who brought beer in growlers or flip top bottles, I did not get to drink all of them. Sorry, but there was just way too much beer. However, I do appreciate the kind gesture. I emptied out the bottles and have washed them with soap and water. If you would like to pick up your container please PM me so we can make arrangements. Just let me know what type of container you are picking up, any particular brewery logo, etc. Thank you.

I am in Chicago's version of Newark, NJ (Hammond, IN) but I want in on the next group buy. Just rebuilding my operation but I tend to go through about 250# of malt and 6 # of hops a year (prefer leaf).

Since I am a bit of a "redneck" brewer I stick to 3 main malts (2-row America, Crystal 60 and Munich Dark) and 2-3 (lots of Cascade, Mt Hood and a high alpha as needed) hops for almost anything with specialty grains bought at my LHS as needed. I am down to 3 yeasts that I tend to re-propagate for about everything as well.

I signed up...see if I get accepted.

Right now it is the Brew and Blooms place almost across the street from my house. Oddly their equipment is reasonably priced but their ingredients...not so much. I just prefer to support a local place at least as much as makes economic sense. I will probably get a 50# sack of 2-row from them and might even ask about having them order sacks of X and Y. They tend toward more hydroponics than brewing but their selection is not bad for how smal the section of the store is.

I rarely make it into the city because i work and live out here plus have three time-consuming hobbies (brewing, old house remodel and LeMons racing) but would love a good reference to homebrew store of exceptional quality in the city.

Through this site I found a fellow homebrewer that is in stumbling distance of my house so there is always the chance he has a hook-up on bulk grains.

I grew up less than 5 miles from that place, in Munster.....
