    Brewery near Rosemont, IL?

    Ram is ok, I like revolution. Right now my preference is the half acre tap room. I like hop leaf for a bar as well, good beer and Duck Ruebens!

    Exploding Ball Lcok Fitting

    Did you have the fitting on the keg while doing this? It specifically states on the charger package they can explode if it isn't attached to the keg when you screw it on is why I ask.

    How do you explain beer and your hobby to your children?

    My son is 4. He understands what the difference between mashing at a low temperature and a high temperature will produce. There is nothing wrong with them knowing about it. My son stirs the mash takes temps and adds hops.

    Forgot to add mini mash to boil!

    So unboiled wort added to your cooled wort? Lacto would be my first guess.
