Brewed this tonight. The color looks great and smells fantastic! Hopefully it turns out well. I did end up going with Windsor for the yeast because I have been using S04 for everything and want to see the difference.

OG came out at 1.062, slightly lower than the expected 1.065.

I took a sample today and gravity is already down to 1.020, so that eases my mind about the ferment ability of the sorghum free recipe. I tasted the sample and it was VERY smooth with caramel tones and a toasty smell and taste. I would like to get it a title darker, maybe around 30 SRM (recipe is around 24-25). I can't wait to try the finished product, but I think this has fantastic potential.

Popped one of my porters tonight and all in all it's pretty good. Very smooth and drinkable with great body, head and carbonation. I bottled with brown sugar and can't tell any difference except maybe I. The head color. I wish it had a little more hops. Flavored to note are coffee and caramel. This is still very young so hopefully hops will come through. Ill update again at Christmas but I think having a little sorghum has merit and there's a flavor in there I don't love, maybe the molasses or candi? I will call it a success though.
