Here's a pic of the AHS all grain kit I brewed in September. It's fantastic (first pour in a month). Definitely some chocolate, roasty and hop bitterness but a hint of caramel and almost medium body balance it. I'm surprised at how rich and creamy it is given the 150F mash temp, must be the MO.

Brewed this one today. Looking forward to comparing it to the original. Thanks for the recipe.

I wanted to post to say thanks to everyone's notes/advice til now on this recipe. I brewed this recipe yesterday, and will stop back to let people know how it turned out.

I did have to go with Hallertau instead of Crystal as my local homebrew store just happened to be out of Crystal, but I'm sure it'll work out fine!

We use Nugget hops for bittering and Willamette and Crystal for flavor/finishing hops, targeting 45 IBUs. Ferment with an American yeast and it should terminate between 5 and 6 Plato, leaving you with 6.5% ABV and a full bodied robust Porter. Good luck, hope this helps.

Made this last night, with Golden Promise as the base and used WLP007, because I prefer it to Cal Ale yeast.

Bubbling away this morning, cant wait to get this one on tap. Thanks for sharing.

Can anyone give me a rough idea the cost of this in a partial mash?

Is the AHS kit over priced?

For yeast I think that WLP001 Cal Ale gets closest to a clone, but I really like the WLP002 English ale character with it too.

I can tell you that I also e-mailed the brewer, and I actually took my percentages from his response. The exact malts weren't specified to the color or supplier, but he gave me a lot to work with.

Let me know how it turns out. This one is in my regular home rotation now.
Where are you getting 127*L for standard? My standard chocolate American malt is 350, and even pale chocolate is more than 127.

Now I'm not sure how much to add.... I bought 3 lbs of standard 350*L (enough for 15 gallons). Based on some other recipes I've found, it looks like 1.x lbs of standard at 350 is correct, so I think your color might be off on that.

9.5 lbs 2 Row
1.25 lbs Chocolate Malt
1 lb Munich
10 oz Carapils
6 oz Crystal 120 L
4 oz Black Patent

Mashed at 155 for 60 minutes
75 Minute Boil

Hops:
60 min - 0.75 oz Nugget (12.2%)
20 min - 0.75 oz Hallertau (4.5%) and 0.75 Willamette (4.9%)
Flameout - 0.25 oz Hallertau and 0.25 oz Willamette

For yeast, I used WLP001.

I intentionally made a final beer was a bit drier and thinner than Founder's, but the aroma and flavor were dead on. It was one of my best beers. I will definitely make it again, but I think I'll switch the base malt for Marris Otter next time and mash a couple of degrees higher. The also use Crystal hops, not Hallertau, but that was a substitution by necessity that turned out just fine. The hop flavor is not that predominant with all the malt flavors taking over.

Enjoy!

I brewed this using Wyeast 1056. My LHBS had all of hops called for so no substitutions there. I emailed Founders for carbonation level. They carb their Porter to 2.4 vols. I carbonated to about 2.4 in the keg and just poured a glass tonight. I didn't have any Founders Porter for a blind taste test, but I have had the real deal many times. This recipe is spot on! Thank you to for sharing!!!

New to the boards. Just wanted to say thanks for this awesome recipe. I brewed the extract version of the recipe a few weeks back. Bottled it last night and it was amazing even flat and at room temperature. Can't wait to see what it's like in a couple weeks.

Cheers
