I don't know what happened to the database part. It just disappeared.

Ed, Question about this brew. I just hooked it up to the gas this past saturday and drew my first sip last night. It was very, very sweet. Unpleasantly so. The only change I had made was to use MO as my base. Also, my hydrometer broke that day so I didn't get an OG reading. But my 4 brews leading up to it had gotten 92% eff, and I had forgotten to reset BeerSmith from 75%, so I think I ended up with an OG around 1.085. My FG was 1.021 and I'm fairly certain I didn't have a stuck fermentation.
SO... back to my question (yes, I did have one). Is this supposed to be a sweet porter? I've never used malto dextrine before and am wondering if the sweetness could be a result of that. I realise that with a FG of 1.021 it'll be sweet regardless, but this, as I said, is just not pleasant. I'm hoping some extra vols will ease that up somewhat, but if you have any ideas I'd love to hear em. Thanks!

EDIT: I don't know if it's an aging thing too, but it's been 9 weeks since brewday.

1.085????? Cheese und Krackers! That's over 10 points too high. The finishing gravity should be around 1.020, but that is due to the malto-dextrin. Nottingham will ferment it out dry and the malto dextrin adds a bit of mouthfeel and chewiness to it.

My porter is not sweet. It has a hint of roastiness and chocolate, but not cloyingly sweet. I would give it time.

I could be wrong about my OG, but at 75% attenuation that would be about the ballpark. Yeah, I'm not getting any of that roasty chocolate flavor. Just sweet. I'll wait it out. Which is too bad since I had planned on bringing it to our club's holiday party on the 13th.

FYI: This is a very active ferment, blew the lid off of my ale pale that had a blowoff tube on it.

This Porter started off my EdWort brew weekend on Saturday, and finished with his Kolsch on Sunday.

Ed - after all the rave reviews of your recipe i've decide to do a partial mash version (unfortunately Im not quite equipped for AG yet)

I love sam adam's honey porter so if I were to add honey to this recipe; how much would I add and when would I add it?

I've never made one before, but googling honey porter recipes show folks adding 1.5 to 2.5 pounds of honey at 10 to 25 minutes left in the boil.
