    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 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...

    Curious if anyone has encountered this before. Just did my first all grain with a new set up.
    Put altogether about 10 gallons of water through the mash tun. Only wound up with 3 gallons in
    the ferment...
