    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

    Finally bottled the White House Honey Ale my friends and I brewed back in March. A lot of
    personal life got in the way between then and now. I'm hoping to get back into a rhythm.

    I assume this all needs to be disassembled to clean and sanitize before each batch. Am I wrong
    in this assumption?Also, considering I am only making 5 gallon batches at the moment, would I
    really need...

    Had a tough brew day, exacerbated by it being too hot outside. I didn't have my mashout water
    ready when needed, so the mash went on too long. Then I got more preboil volume than intended
    because I wa...

    I had the 7/4/14 on tap at a Mellow Mushroom Pizza (it's a chain, but I don't know if there are
    any in IL).There's a Mellow Mushroom near my Mom's house in Lexington, SC. If I'd known they
    had good be...

    You all seem extra bitchy lately. Ease up and stop ruining whats left of this thread.Are you
    mad about the formaldehyde thing?

    I think it's funny to assume that there *wouldn't* be a difference between Bud Light and Coors
    Light. Bud Light IS better than Coors Light, and Miller Light is better than both of them. They
    have more...
