    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 just want to thank the OP. I've used these proportions of flowers (roughly, and I tweak as I
    go) add to the NB Petite Saison d' Ete recipe with great results. I actually like mine better
    than IO Bau...

    After not brewing for almost a YEAR, I bought ingredients today for a friendly little homebrew
    competition for my local Ingress Resistance team. This was also my first time buying grain at

    When it came to SC when I lived there, a lot of people went crazy about it. I had a buddy in
    college that used to bring back trunkloads of it back from PA.In Chicago, people get the same

    I guess it was one of those times you had to be there? Once she got it from me that she wasn't
    going to get to do it the easy way, then was told I'm a home brewer & author, she stumbled for
    a bit. I w...

    It's so damn cheesy that I might just have to give it a pass. Not laugh-out-loud material,

    Therefore, if you can define something that is partially made from a "plant" to be a salad,
    then virtually everything can be a "salad." Especially if you define it so loosely as a liquid
    that a plant ...

    I would guess that in the 1800s and before, there wasn't any actual "home" brewing, but just
    "brewing". Everyone brewed at home mostly, or they probably didn't drink. You would think with
    no commercia...
