8 lbs Maris Otter Pale Malt
1 lb Crystal Malt 60L
8 oz Brumalt (Honey Malt)
8 oz Chocolate Malt
1.25 oz Willamette (5.5% AAU) 60 min boil
.75 oz Willamette (5.5% AAU) 15 min boil
Mash @ 154F for 60 min.
Well-balanced, with moderate roastiness and a honey note on the finish.
Dark brown (perhaps on the dark side for a Brown Porter) with a creamy head.
This porter is a very drinkable porter, with not too high an ABV. The residual sweetness of the honey malt balances the chocolate malt, but diminishes when served too cool.
