Default All-Grain - Bee Cave Brewery Robust Porter


This will make 5.5 gallons of Porter. Preboil is 7 gallons.

11# 2 Row
1# Chocolate Malt
1# Crystal 40
4 oz. Black Patent
1 oz. Roasted Barley
8 oz. Flaked Barley

Mash at 150 degrees for 60 minutes

Add 8 oz. of Malto Dextrin to boil at 20 minutes

Hops.

1 oz. Northern Brewer at 60 min.
0.5 oz Cascade at 60 min.

Hydrate a package of Nottingham.

This ferments vigorously, so use a blow off or be prepared to wipe up some beer.

Ferment for 2 weeks, then rack to keg or secondary.

Hi Ed,

Just wondering why the 1 oz black roasted barley? I thought barley was for the stouts? Thanks!

The one ounce will add just a touch of some coffee flavor to the porter which will go nicely with it. This is a big beer, lots of body & kinda chewy yet tasty. Something you can nurse for a while and enjoy the full flavors of it.

Kegged 10 gallons of this Porter this weekend. Very tasty. Finished out at 1.017 with an OG of 1.065 for 6.4% abv. Two cornies on gas in the Keezer.

I'm very happy with this recipe.

It's on the list for the next HBT O'Fallon homebrew-meet. I'm actually sending it in for the Sam Adams Longshot contest.

Ed gave me and a buddy a taste of this yesterday. Very nice! If you're looking for a good porter recipe, don't hesitate to give this a try.

Thanks Clint! I'm very happy with how it turned out.

It was nice meeting you yesterday. I'll bring some more and some other brews over when you have the Guys Brew Day. I'm very interested in seeing a single tier system with pump in action.

Ground breaking on the Brew Haus is April 25th! I hope to have it under roof by Sunday evening.

just looking at that recipe reminds me of my old recipe for the porter I useto use a lot of black patent in my porter but I thought it made it to harsh. Did you have any harsh flavors?? whats the malto dextrin for in this recipe?? I still use N.brewer and cascade I love that combo in a porter. good choice
