I spent last year doing porters and stouts. The one thing I enjoyed with homemade porters was

20% crystal malt is quite a lot. Hallertau at 5 will get drowned by Chinook and Citra. If you

Wow, that's not like the Harvey's beers I've had (to be fair, it's not like I've had many)!
Happy to chuck in something more flavourful in with those Targets too. I guess I wouldn't go
for as much agi...

Yeah I'd use sugar :) Although that recipe still looks good. I'd probably change the later
target for something else and boil for a bit longer s04 is usually good in stouts, certainly
