Black Beer'd porter

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

   I recently, after some miss communication, became the owner of 3 black Beer'd porter kits. I'm planning on making a batch straight, but since I have 3 fermenters. 2 empty and one soon to be. I was wondering if anyone has made this, or done anything different to it. Maybe you wished you did something different.  I welcome all thoughts and suggestions as to what I could add to the other 2 to get different unique beers.  Thank you

If this is supposed to be the MRB version of dechutes black butte porter then I would just leave it alone. That beer is amazing.

I made the Black Beer'd Porter. It will be ready in July. Can't wait. Love Dechutes Black Butte Porter! Best porter I've ever had. Hope mine turns out similar.

I am making a batch straight up. But I have 2 others to make, so I was seeing if anyone had any suggestions to experiment on it. 

 

 

Everyone else, thanks for the ideas.

I had some leftover darker grains from another recipe so I added them to the BBP.  It turned out great.  Next time, though, I'm going to make it straight up.

 I found my notes, here's what I did:
-  1 Porter HME

-  2 Robust LME instead of 2 smooth

-  Steeped 2oz each of roasted barley, oat flakes, 2-row, chocolate malt, and Munich malt.

In addition to changing from smooth to robust LME after 2 weeks I add a 4" oak spiral I've soaked in bourbon. I leave it for another 2 weeks... yes, I know that's 4 weeks in the fermenter. I keep my temperatures at 60 degrees. On some occasions I increase the fermentables by using both the smooth and robust LME's and I use a lager yeast. Drinking one I bottled on 2/4 as a matter of fact. @MiniYoda might be able to comment on that combination.

I have not tried that recipe specifically but usually I make the Porter HME with 1 Robust and 1 Smooth LME. I like that combo.

Sometimes I add maltodextrin, sometimes I steep oats and one time I had some choc malt so I steeped that too. All come out nice.

 

Bah now when I try to access the Mr B recipes I get...……...

I've not had this problem specifically, but I don't really like how they've changed their website - makes it harder to find the things I want, like 50% off bottle recipes.  You have to remember which ones (like 'Nilla Porter) that used to qualify.  'Nilla still does, but I have a batch conditioning - don't really want another.  I found better bottle prices on Amazon, alas.

Now it works

 

PHEW!

 

Yeah, I am not totally liking their new web site either, but change is always tough once you are used to something. I have to rate them by number of clicks/scrolls to find what I want. If more than 3 it is a problem.

 

But also (I guess because I am aged, I do not like scrolling, after all, a page is a page.  Pages were a technical evolution thrusting us from the scroll era to the tablet ere. many 100's of years ago. I also have a beef with multi column pages which are OK on paper but a real pain to read on electronic devices, in that you cannot see a whole  page at once.

 

 Still who else cares - if you cannot say it in 280 characters is it worth saying?
