    ABOUT ME

  • CFO at Chicago Architecture Foundation
  • Aaron Andersen
  • Started with a Mr. Beer starter set that my wife got me for Valentine's Day. Then I upgraded in cooperation with some friends, and we now brew 5-gallon extract kits and mini-mashes, and tinker around with them. I am now stepping into all-grain, too.
  • I want to find an all-grain recipe I really like, and then try it over a few times to master it and learn to tinker with it. I think saisons make a great base for tweaking and augmenting, so maybe I'll go with that.
  • None
  • Oaked bourbon porter with vanilla bean
  • All-grain SMaSH APA with 2-row pale and Galaxy hops; Surly Cynic partial mash clone; Irish heavy extract - not so great; Some aging Mr. Beer trippels - even worse
  • Male
  • Married
  • Oak Park
  • IL

    It's something I want to learn, actually. I just don't know when I'll find the time.

    I'm also trying to weigh my theoretical preference for a DIY solution with the reality of not
    having time to do it right, practice the welds, etc.

    You have to be able to sell a ton of your product to make Superbowl advertising costs worth it.
    It's simple... ECONOMICS! I hear we're good at that kind of thing in here. :D

    Is there any benefit to the counterflow hose chiller vs a chiller plate? I know the latter
    could be more expensive, but it would take so much less space, yes?
