I got my grains weighed out and I'm brewing this up tomorrow. I did a quick skim of this thread to find out what the IBU's should be at? I'm looking at 40 IBU's. Does that sound about right?

I just bottled this, and the sample in my glass is afrikken amazing. I couldn't believe how good this already was, flat and warm. I can't wait for this to condition a little!

I did extract, extra light dme 6 lbs. And I also did some NB hops at 10 and flame out. My roasted barley was 1.5 oz, so not much of a change there.

Finished at 1.020.

I've made this and variations a few times, the secret is the maltodextrin. That's what makes it so unique to me as I never drink beer with that adjunct. So creamy and delicious.

Ive been using it in some black ipas too that came out awesome

Default Little too much homebrew


I wasn't paying attention today when I brewed this, and I added 16 ounces of maltodextrin instead of the 8oz the recipe called for. I've done a little looking around the forums and all I've been able to come up with is that 8oz of MD is already quite a lot. Should I be worried about getting beer jello?

Would this beer lend itself nicely to some aging on bourbon-soaked oak chips for a couple months? Looking for a nice porter to do that with.

You don't want to let a beer age on oak chips, maybe oak cubes. Only a week or 2 is enough for oak cups. But, to answer your question, I think this porter would age nicely with those.

Thanks! I've never used oak in any form, so you just taught me something. Cheers.

Has anyone experimented with this recipe with regards to adding the very dark grains later in the mash?

Brewed this up this weekend and accidentally added an entire pound of flaked barley instead of half a pound (16oz vs the 8oz the recipe calls for).

Dumped 5.5 gal into my 8 gal bucket and used an airlock thinking 3 gal is plenty of head space. Blew through the the bucket about 16 hours after pitching. Whoops!

Looking forward to some mighty head on this brew!
