Default Fuller's London Porter.. Extract recipe?

Not very often that a beer knocks my socks off, but man this tasted great!! Went to a beer tasting event on Friday, March Beer Madness. 16 brews, blind tastes, trying to judge which beer is closest to style guidelines. First taste for me was an Irish Red. Can't stand Killian's so I wasn't to excited about this one, although in all fairness I've yet to taste a homebrew Red. By the time we made it to the Elite 8 in front of me was Brown Porter #2. Turned out to be Fuller's London Porter. I would love to clone this beer!! Told SWMBO about it & even she sounded interested in trying it!! If anyone has a good extract w/grains recipe I would appreciate it. Thanks RR

There's supposedly a dead on clone in a BYO issue. I haven't made it myself (Fullers London Porter is my #1 commercial beer next to that certain Irish stout) but it's on my to-brew list. They have both the all grain and extract with grains version.

May-June 2006, Vol. 12, No. 3

I'm not sure of the legality of posting the recipe but the whole issue is well worth the $4-5 cost. It has clones for Youngs Special London Ale, Newcastle Brown Ale, Bass Pale Ale and Youngs Double Chocolate Stout as well.

I had this recently on tap, and I must say it was very, very good. I wouldn't mind drinking it again at all. Lots of chocolatey goodness.

If you look at Fullers site, you will find the following information:

"London Porter is brewed from a blend of brown, crystal and chocolate malts for a creamy delivery balanced by traditional Fuggles hops."

So those clones with EKGs and black patent you might want to reconsider.....
