Default Left Over Mish-Mash Brown Porter Recipe?

I have a few left overs and was wondering how you guys think this will turn out.

Grains:
11lbs 2 row
.5 lbs crystal 60L
.5lbs Chocolate malt
.25lbs Roasted Barley

Hops:
.9oz Fuggles (60 mins)
.7oz EKG (60 mins)

Yeast:
Re-hydrated Notti

It will be a full, 60 min boil. And I plan to mash for 60 mins at 154. In beersmith it seems to follow the guidelines of a brown porter...the only thing that I don't think does is the roasted barley.

How do you guys think it will be? Not too concerned because I just want to use up some extra stuff and try out some new equipment.

It will be pretty dry. More crystal and/or mash it even higher. I'd drop the roasted. Some black patent would be nice for a robust porter. I could make 10 gallons of brown porter with that much base malt.

I was also considering dropping the roasted barley, and decreasing the 2 row to 6 lbs and just making a 3 gal batch. This would make it a robust porter. What are your thoughts on this one?

If you drop the roasted barley without adding any black patten, I think that it would still fall under brown porter, I feel that you need that kinda dry and arid burnt flavor from the black patten in a robust porter.

Either way, it doesn't matter what style it is, I'm just wondering if it will taste good?

Answer: yes. love me some porter. Looks pretty close to my porter recipe, but I use a bit more crystal, and some brown malt, with an english strain.

Yes, I think it would be very good. I'd omit the roasted too, but I don't think an amount that small would be critical.

I like the sound of it quite a bit. I think that small amount of roasted barley will dry out the finish a bit but do little more.

I know that everyone else has said this already, but you do not need the roasted barley.. especially that much.

If anything use .10 lb or something.

Ok, so I am planning on making this for sure now. I am going to use 12lbs of 2 row instead of 11, and just to try it I'm going to keep the .25lb of roasted barley. I have to keep with the trend of using everything I have left over. I will keep you guys posted after the brew and again after sampling and aging.
