    STOLEN: Sabco Brew Magic - Chicago.

    We could at least have a fund raiser to buy you a very large dog or fire breathing guard dragon.

    STOLEN: Sabco Brew Magic - Chicago.

    iX_Xi is a super good guy. Perhaps the brew clubs in Northern IL can do some fundraising to help the guy out.

    Leaky Perlick

    I have a feeling I need to replace the tiny o rings. Ive adjusted pressure and the collar a bunch of time. It will close if I put pressure on the tap in the closed position. Ill take a look on amazon, thanks all.

    Leaky Perlick

    Anyone have issues with their perlick tap leaking. I bought mine about 4-5 years ago and it worked great for awhile but now leaks like a sailor coming off of shore leave. Taken it apart and cleaned it thoroughly. When the tap is closed I still get a stream of beer coming out. Don't realty want...

    Minnesota Homebrew Con 2017

    I did give the same feedback in the survey they sent out. Ive been brewing for about 5 years, I know most of the basics but still manage to be surprised by what I don't know or have not thought of before. The Schells berliner session was particularly bad. The presentation was fine and the beers...

    Minnesota Homebrew Con 2017

    Thanks, I also went to the lager yeast session and had the exact same reaction. Same impression and same issues with the club chat. I have a smallish club as well and could not relate to the first world problems of those larger clubs. I did look into becoming a 501c7 so we could sell commercial...

    Minnesota Homebrew Con 2017

    Was my first year attending and all in all it was a fun event. One thing Im wondering is the quality of the sessions compared to years past. I think I attended 2-3 that I thought were ok to pretty good. Some were just down right bad and not geared towards homebrewers at all. Is this typical or...

    Minnesota Homebrew Con 2017

    Seems odd there would be animosity between the two message boards. Brining a chocolate milk stout made with waffle cones and a take on a nut goodie bar to club night. Figured I would at least attempt a Minnesota themed beer. I know nut goodies are made in st paul.

    AB acquired Wicked Weed

    You are correct I don't know a ton about the brewery, Ive had some beers from them and enjoyed them. I do know that for ANY brewery to be successful attention to detail is a first and foremost. Being owned by INBEV has nothing to do with infections. The Bruery, Three Floyds, Revolution, and...

    AB acquired Wicked Weed

    I don't understand why people get so up in arms about this. Gives the brewery more capital for expansion, access to more and better ingredients and lets brewers focus on beer and not marketing, resource management and distribution. Most small breweries hate dealing with this stuff and are not...

    Ice cream cones

    Im participating in a benefit for autism next month. My son, who is autistic, was given the job of deciding what daddy should make. He said chocolate ice cream. I was thinking of including ice cream cones sans ice cream in the mash. Anyone tired this before?

    Illinois BABBLE 20th Anniversary

    Apparently our archives have been mismanaged. Word from former members is that the official start date of the club was in 1999. The event will still be held but will be more of a reunion. We will party like it's 1999 in 2019.
