Does anyone think adding the last .50 oz of Cascade at flame-out would dynamically change the character of the beer? I'll have a little extra - I was just wondering what effect it might have if I threw them in there..

Adding that much at the end of the boils shouldn't really allow for any alpha acid utilization, so the flavor shouldn't be affected.

Might give a nice additional aroma however. Go for it!

I think I will. I hate diddling around with good recipes - but I think I have to diddle..

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.

I am planning on brewing a Porter as my next brew. Unfortunately, I am not at the All Grain stage. Any thoughts on how to convert this recipe to an Extract version? It sounds like it would be my type of beer. I love bold black tasty beers.

Bottled this a little over a week ago.. I know its early but I couldnt resist!! The only changes I made from the origional recipe was: substituted the black patent for caraffe II, crystal 60 for the 40 and centennial for the cascades.. tasting notes: nice hoppy aroma and initial flavor.. the mouthfeel from the malto dextrine works perfectly with this brew, I was origionally worried that it would be over the top but not so.. GREAT BREW. Thanks Ed.

Just kegged this up today. Tastes great after taking a reading. I'm planning on 8 lbs for 3 weeks in the kegerator.

Brewing this as we speak. Slow day at the office so I left 30 minutes early to come home and fit in a weeknight brew.
