A bit ago I bought a 4# can of Ironmaster Porter extract.....
I only have 2.5 gallon carboys.....
So, I added the ENTIRE can, water and Wyeast 1098 to make a half batch....nothing else.....thass'it.
I let it ferment out for 6 weeks.
Today I tasted it.
Absolutely fantastic! Deep, malty almost smoky flavor with maybe a hint of chocolate!
Friday I am going to carb it up!
Next week I am gonna do the same thing with a Brown Ale!
Every now and then I get the urge to go 'slumming' a bit by using canned beer kits. I suspect many of them have potential if you do things like this, e.g., skip the sugar, swap yeast, make a smaller batch, etc.
Fresh extract makes good beer. Making it the way you did means more body and more concentrated caramels.
