Your last attempt at home brewing was utter mayhem.
Restore order to the learning process with help from Erick Ignaczak (a.k.a. Iggy) and David Williams, cofounders of CHAOS (Chicago Homebrew Alchemists of Sud).
Memberships give you access to CHAOS’s online community, discounts on workshops and the group grain supply, and entree to the crew’s 1,000-square-foot West Town brewhouse, equipped with everything from a temperature-controlled fermentation room to a motorized malt mill (for crafting all-grain and extract batches).
Sample it while you can (there are just 100 kegs).
It’s the yeast you can do.
CHAOS Brew Club, 1329 West Grand Avenue, between Elizabeth and Ada Streets. For membership information and to register, go to chaosbrewclub.ning.com.
