4 oz of BP is not too much. It is just right for a porter....especially one with those hops in it.

Heck I use 4 ozs of BP and 4oz of roasted in my porter.

A smooth Porter!

Try this out if you really like smooth Porter's.

For real Porter lovers, this will lack the roasted kick!, but it is a good session beer and on for converting BMC people over to dark Ales. If you...

Steep for 30 mins minimum. It will not hurt at all. I have never seen a receipe with such a weird number (12 mins) for the steep time.

I would steep at 155 to 160 degrees for 30-60 mins depending on the style. Longer for darker beers. Be careful listening to others. Steeping is not the same thing as mashing and you want to keep your...

I agree with the concerns of overpitching and fast ferments. Heat builds up and unless you are equiped to handle the heat, you should not overpitch.

I do not really like dry beer. I tend to like Porters and stouts and brown ales that have a little residual sweetness. I have brewed some dryer beers and never had a problem with attenuation. I...

Better is a very individual concept. If your attenuation goes up then your alcohol content goes up and your beer is dryer. That is ok if the style of beer matches the dryness that you get. But if you...

With an ass washing technique of "Dump and Spash", I would assume that some funk is left behind. Ass wahing needs "scrubbing" to be effective.:D

I have no doubt that using pure oxygen to pump up...

No.....I am saying that when you add yeast to the wort, it reproduces and as it does, it absorbs (pure)water from the wort to build the new cells. The dead cells and trub also act as a sponge...
