Marty... Take a couple FG reading over the next couple of days to see where it's at. If it is a points or two (+ or -) within the expected FG of 1.014, then I'd say its ready to transfer to keg. If you're patient enough, then let it sit in the primary for an additional week (3 total) before cold crashing and racking to keg. Give those yeast a little time to insure they clean up after themselves, if they haven't already done so. Like many on this forum I stopped racking to secondary, unless I intended to add post fermentation adjuncts like oak cubes or extensive dry hopping.

That would be just fine as a general rule, but you can't put any beer on a schedule. You can shoot for 3 weeks, but only hydrometer readings can tell you when it's done fermenting, then you want to give it a little more time.

Made this in my BIAB equip, and didnt start with enough water. Did a 90 min boil and I ended up with only about 4.5 gallons. Its gonna be pretty hot at about 7.4% if it finishes at the 1.014. My OG was 1.070. Smelled great and seems to chugging along fermentation wise. I used a smaller starter of Wye 1968, but added also about a half packet of S-05 because I didn't feel I had enough yeast for such a high gravity. Hope the flavor profile remains close to the original. I need to perfect my starting volumes and get this down better. I've been all over the place haha. Still made beer though!!

After 12 days I am down to 1.022. Still too high for me. But damn! That hydro sample tasted amazing. Cant wait for this thing to finish out and keg it up. I BB Porter, and just had a bottle of it last night. I think this will be a regular in our pipeline Thanks for the great recipe!

Well, after a week or so being on tap, this is one hell of a beer. Its pretty damn close to the real thing. Just drank mine side by side with the real thing, and the color, flavor, head, were all pretty darn close. Mine was just a little more bitter than the real thing. Not sure if its due to freshness, but its really close. Such a great beer!! Thanks for a killer recipe. Ill be brewing this again for sure!

I brewed my second batch (6 gal) of this on 1/25. I'm going to either keg or bottle it this week - can't decide which. I kegged my first batch and grinned every time I had one.

This was my first all grain. I did the mash all wrong, probably other things too. But you know what I got? Really good beer! Thank you for posting the recipe. I can't wait to brew it again.

Brewed this tonight. Started mash about 9pm, cleaned up by 1am. Smells good, can't wait to try it.
Bumped up the grain bill just a bit by rounding up to the nearest 1/4 lb, way easier with my lhbs scale.
Mismeasured my boil volume and ended up with 7 gallons in my fermenter. Reading of 1.061.
Thanks for the recipe, I will post back with updates.

Black Butte Porter has been my favorite beer for years. I brew a lot of porters that have been great, but still haven't been close to BBP. I recently had the opportunity to speak with a guy who works for Deschutes and he told me, as I've long suspected, that Black Butte Porter is actually dry hopped! So I made close-to-clone version a few weeks ago which is now dry hopping on cascades. Hope to bottle soon!
