Major difference between the OP recipe and mine were that mine was in primary for 36 days. Other than that the numbers were really close.
I'll let it sit in the fridge to continue carbing and see what happens.
Just wanted to give the OP an update on this:
Now it is 5 weeks in keg and this beer has now developed into a great porter.
Time is the newest ingredient that I've been learning about in this hobby, and in this case that's the only ingredient this beer needed. I have to admit, I'm very proud of this beer. Really appreciate the recipe.
I bottled a few a couple weeks ago and they're just as good so I entered it into a local competition, can't wait to see the results.
I suppose you're going to want royalties if I win the 1st prize SS brew pot huh?
