Yesterday I brewed a porter from extract using the following recipe. The recipe is loosely based on Sparrow Hawk Porter found on page 201 "The Joy of Homebrewing 3rd Ed.". I started out brewing all grain. This is the third beer I have brewed and my first extract brew.
Sparrow Hawk Porter
3.3 lbs Cooper's Dark LME
3.3 lbs Cooper's Amber LME
1 lb Munton's Amber DME
1 lb black patent malt

Gently crushed and steeped black patent malt in 2 gallons of water 30 mins @150-155 degrees F
Added all extracts.

Transfered to 6.5 gallon carboy with 3 gallons of water waiting.
