I'm not sure how I feel about putting published recipes into this repository, since they're copyrighted... did you modify the recipe any?

It's questionable but Jamil has given permission (as far as I know) to the guy at Fred's Home Brew Pages to post recipes that have been covered on the Jamil Show. I doubt the posting here is going to cost them any book sales.

In any case, this is a very good recipe.

Fred stopped posting recipes when Jamil and JP got the book deal. However, lots of them are out there (I have McDole's Janet's Brown in the RDB) anyway, or available on the podcast if you ff through the banter.

IMO the recipe does not have substantial literary expression.

Agreed. Besides, in Jamil's book he goes out of his way to express his feelings on sharing recipes and brewing knowledge. He encourages you to brew the recipes and enter them in competitions. I think as long as you acknowledge where you got the recipe and who's it is there is no problem.

I brewed this on 5.9.09. It was only my 4th all grain that I had done.
I believe I kegged it after about 3 weeks. 1 week in primary, 2 weeks in secondary. I have been super excited for all my recent beers so I cracked it after it was in keg for about 2 weeks. At this stage you could really taste all the flavors separately. I drank on that keg for about 2 weeks until I wanted to switch the taps over for something else. (only have 2 taps)

I just re-tapped this keg last night and wow! What a difference a few months makes! It tastes absolutely different, and amazing. I will def. brew this beer again. Been told from a beer enthusiast it's the best porter he's ever had.

I highly recommend this brew.
