Probably will turn out pretty good! Everything seems to match guidelines.

Personally, I don't want my porter smelling like hops, so that aroma hop may be a little off -- but that's a personal call. Troeg's porter from PA reeks of cascade IPA - and personally i thought it sucked.

But .5 oz shouldn't be overboard.

After trying every porter I could find at the GABF....I've decided that they should ALL be aged in a burbon barrel for 19 or more months.







Or bottles with a shot of burbon in each bottle

I like mildly hoppy porter's, but yea, i don't want it to be overbearing.

Think i should maybe push it out to 10 min?

I do a flavor and aroma addition in my robust porter, neither of them are very strong at all. It is really more to add another layer of complexity than anything, but since you are not using any black malt in yours it might come through stronger. I would either add black malt to your existing recipe, maybe a 1/4lb, or remove the aroma hop. I use that much black malt in mine and have to dry hop to get the hops to come through.

I prefer my porters quite a bit more bitter than what you have there. I would shoot for a BU:SG ratio of about 0.9, give or take a tenth...doubling your bittering addition should do nicely.

I like bitter, but the SWMBO likes hers a tad more on the sweet/malty side.

I think i might just push the last addition to 10 min to cut back on aroma but to add a tad more flavor.

I do 60m and 0m, but my 0m isn't much - about as much as you were doing. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
