Paul's Picnic Table Porter
 
This was one of my first all grain brews and I made it for the friend that got me into home brewing for his retirement party. It was a long time ago but I remember that the beer was a huge hit and it didn't last long.

I brewed this with a single infusion mash at 154 degrees for 90 minutes. It was bottle conditioned for three weeks and was consumed 5 weeks after brewing. I wonder how good it would have been with some additional conditioning?
