    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

    This kinda makes me want to head to the nearest good bar and start spouting all the nonsense
    that gets quoted here.

    I think it came from the fermenter when I was siphoning. I did my best not to get near the
    bottom where it was but I didn't want to waste too much beer.Getting rid of sediment is the
    only reason I rac...

    Well, that's a weird bastardization of shruggie. Can the auto-emoticons be turned off?

    They say Guinness is way better in Ireland. \_(ツ)_/

    5 Rabbits makes a good one called 5 Vultures. It has very gentle heat that begins to accumulate
    by the end of the glass. Inspired by Oaxacan chocolate, I think.

    That's a glamour job for you.

    I have to say, I've been pretty impressed by their recipes. I would have called their
    Synchronicity Wheaten Saison a white IPA with saison yeast. But whatever. It was delicious
    either way, despite my ...

    Yeah, it's odd for a restaurant that a good beer selection is part of their thing though. At
    least up here they always have good stuff. First place I had brother thelonious.Red Robin? The
    burger place...

    They're finally just admitting their only value proposition.

    All told in the end, I was trying to sneak in a brew day and the misses wanted my help with
    other stuff, notably the 2.5 month old brewers assistant. So lots of shortcuts and some spills
    and some hicc...
