Founder's Porter Clone - Partial Mash
 
I based my partial mash recipe off of this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/any-...s-info-160119/ But that particular thread is kind of ramshackle, so I am organizing my recipe here.

I'm telling you, this recipe is right on target. Put them side-by-side and I couldn't tell you which one is which - the taste, the color, the mouthfeel. If there's any difference, it's that my yeast is slightly more detectable in the aroma. And the recipe should be good, as the ingredients and proportions came straight from a brewer at Founder's. I simply organized it and converted it to partial mash. They call it a porter, but I found that it fits squarely in the BJCP American Stout category.

Thanks, this recipe looks great! How long does this need to sit in the bottles? I just bottled my first batch (an ipa) which recommended 2 weeks, is it the same for this recipe?

Also, any idea about how much this recipe cost?

Thanks!

I'd give it at least three weeks in the bottle and allow it to clean up a little bit.

As for the cost, I don't have the numbers but I'd guess approximately $25-$30 depending on your source for ingredients.

Sounds great, I cant wait to try this! This will be my second brew, so two more beginner question..

1. I seem to only see hops sold in 1 oz increments.. Is this generally the case or am I looking in the wrong places?

2. Pellets or whole hops?

JeffersonJ 01-15-2013 02:03 PM

I used pellet hops.

You'll notice for this recipe that if you add up the initial and late additions of each type of hop that they each add up to 1 ounce. To split up the quantities, you can either weigh the hops using a scale or just visually split each ounce into quarters. Since this is a stout, the hops don't play a major role anyway.

Wow I feel foolish, I should have noticed that. This is all great info though. Thank you so much for this recipe and the time you've put into helping me. As a new brewer, this site a phenomenal resource thanks to user like you!

This recipe may be my second partial mash, as my 1st is still fermenting. Will there be a big difference if I only steep for half an hour rather than an hour?

Looks like a nice porter/stout! I was wondering what volumes you used.

1) Volume for the mash
2) Volume for rinsing the grains after mash (sparging?)
3) Volume boiled
4) Any other pertinent volumes I may have forgot

Thanks
Ayup
