    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

    I'm sorry. Done talking about coffee.

    Now I agree that some of Starbucks' coffees are roasted quite dark (and many are not), so when
    people say Starbucks is over roasted, it is akin to non craft beer drinkers saying they hate
    beer, never ...

    I agree to the burned taste and have heard many who say the same, and I only drink coffee
    black. Yet from what I have read, the darker the roast the lower the caffeine level, but may I
    say holy crap, ...

    It's amusing how many people are convinced that drinking Heineken or Stella makes them
    informed, discerning drinkers.I went on a brewery tour with some people I play a game with, so
    a couple there wer...

    I helped with setup for the Festival of Barrel Aged Beers in Chicago on Thursday, and was
    therefore allowed to attend on Friday! I moved so many sixtels that day.

    Well that explains several things:1 the only place I ever get great service is locally owned
    restaurants. 2 I hardly ever go out to eat/bar any more. 3. My swmbo and I went to applebee's a
