Spring porter recipe

Recommended Posts

Okay guys, gonna share a recipe I made. Turned out very good if I must say so myself. Partial mash using BAA. I did 5 gallons. 

 

Here is the recipe for a 2.5 gallon batch:

 

300g pale malt

125g 60L crystal

125g 20L crystal

250g flaked oats

80g roasted barley

30g black patent

30g chocolate malt

60g light chocolate malt

125g wheat malt

mash 156deg F/60 min. 

 

0.5oz Columbus@60min

0.5oz cascade@30 min

add Bewitched hme with 10 min left in boil

0.5 oz cascade at flameout

 

ferment with MrB ale yeast

 

Turned out very well balanced and tasty. Aged two months it is creamy with a clean hop finish. Just enough roasty character. A very robust brown ale if not a porter. Cheers!

How did build the grain bill? Did you do some googling or did you use things you had on hand? I think that looks like an experienced recipe

Thanks for the kind words. Basically have been tinkering with a base recipe for a few batches until I finally got it the way I liked it. Inspired by the Brulosophy podcast on roasted barley.

I knew you could boil LME, but wasn't exactly sure what would happen when HME gets boiled? 

You alter the hop profile of the beer, but I'm not sure in which direction (stronger/weaker). Either way, it's not desired.

Very true. As I was doing hop additions I wasn’t concerned about changing the hme       

Hop profile. My main reason for adding with ten minutes left in the boil is to avoid the dreaded “twang”. So far it has been working. May just be my perception though.

I've never tried it, since there's no point, but it's my understanding that it produces a grassy off flavor.
