I brewed this last month but I had to make a few changes to the recipe because my LHBS did not have C*80 or British Chocolate. I think it turned out great, Black Butte is by far my favorite porter and I wanted to have it on tap since I can't get it in VA. I wonder how much difference the British chocolate would have made... I'll post a side by side and more comparisons soon with one of the BBs I had my brother mail me

Original Gravity: 1.060 (1.048 - 1.065)
Terminal Gravity: 1.015 (1.012 - 1.016)
Color: 23.06 (22.0 - 35.0)
Alcohol: 5.86% (4.8% - 6.5%)
Bitterness: 36.5 (25.0 - 50.0)

Ingredients:
8.46 lb 2-Row Brewers Malt
1.11 lb White Wheat Malt
0.68 lb Chocolate Malt
0.50 lb American Caramel 60°L
0.30 lb American Caramel 120°L
0.34 lb Cara-Pils® Malt
.6 oz Galena (13.0%) - added during boil, boiled 90 min
.4 oz Cascade (5.5%) - added during boil, boiled 30 min
.4 oz Tettnanger (4.5%) - added during boil, boiled 5 min

I brewed this recipe a while ago and was pretty happy with the results. I have had the real stuff before and its pretty darn similar. not my favorite porter by any means, but if you really want black butte, then the original posted recipe is gold.

Default Cascade addition at 15 min or 30 min?

Hi, I am getting ready to brew this and I just listened to part of the Podcast again. Tasty states the Cascade addition is at 30 minutes and you have it at 15 minutes on the recipe listed here.

I was curious if there was a reason you put it at 15 min. Is that what the brewer stated and Tasty stated it wrong?

Anyway, no biggy, but thought you might want to edit the recipe here if it is incorrect.

Thanks!

You are correct, it is 30 minutes.

Thanks for the correction.

I wish I could edit it, but the forum administrator does not allowed old posts to be edited. That feature would be really useful, but they refuse to allow it.

Thanks for the update. I see an edit button on my post and have edited posts of mine before. I wonder why you can't? I just let my subscription run out, but I plan on renewing it this weekend. I wonder if it is a paid subscription thing? With all the work here, I will donate to your subscription if you don't already have one and I bet some other folks would too. More later.

The other thing that is weird about this recipe is it states that the OG is 1.058 and the FG is 1.012. That would be an apparent attenuation of 78.4%

78.4% is WELL OVER the 70% max. stated by White Labs on their website for WLP002. Does the fact that I am making a starter matter? Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer this question for me.

Take a look at posts you have made months ago. You probably can't edit them. There is a time limit (not sure what it is) to editing.

As far as attenuation, I wouldn't worry about the numbers as much as the flavor. And the White Labs info are just guidelines. I used 007 to get a batch from 1067 to 1010, and it had 4% carapils and 4% C-75.

I recently brewed this. I would say that it is "spot on!"

Tonight, several of us compared it side by side to the real McCoy. One of the people doing the comparison is about to be BJCP certified and won our club's homebrew competition for 2009.

Anyway, he originally guessed that our beer was the real Black Butte Porter.

After a while, he thought this recipe had a little more coffee flavor and the store bought BB Porter had more chocolate flavor.

Either way, I'm posting this to say that this is a very accurate clone recipe and the color is spot on.

You won't be disappointed if you brew this.
