I ended up ordering 4 quad espressos today at Peet's. Dude thought I was nuts, "you know this is going to taste really bad, espresso on its own is only good for about 10 seconds". After I told him it was for a recipe, he didn't seem as skeptical...

We'll see how it tastes. Next time I'll do a cold fridge brew, so I can compare.

Next time, you can just make espresso turkish style (not really espresso, but same idea)

Basically, you take finely ground coffee, boil it in a pan, and let the grounds settle. decant off the coffee and there you go.

I cool my espresso before adding to the beer - it's gonna cool as soon as it hits the beer anyway!. I'm sure yours will turn out just fine

As you said French press can use to make espresso, but the taste you get from the real espresso machine, that you won't get from that one. Espresso machine have high pressure engines to brew and grinds, were it's dual boilers make the espresso to taste different.
