I had posted this in the recipe section but got no bite, so figured this section has a few more people looking at it. I am trying to make a clone of a beer a friend had from Market Street Brewery in NY. The website lists the OG, IBU, Alc/Vol and 6 malts used, so I threw everything into beer smith to try and come up with something. The beer is listed by the company as a British Dark Ale, but according to reviews online it is more like a Porter/Robust Porter, which is the style I am basing it on. Below is the recipe I have come up with so far.
9.0# UK 2 Row
1 oz Goldings for 60 minutes, then .75 oz at 30 minutes
.5 oz Fuggles at 5 minutes
I have only done 1 AG batch, which was Wort's pale ale. All of my other extracts have been based on pre-set recipes as well. This is my first attempt at creating one myself. What does everyone think of the recipe above? Should I increase any of the grains? Switch some hops? Add more/Less? Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks.
